You may be eligible for Government Subsidised Training whilst studying a Nationally Recognised Qualification with Think Academy of Business & Technology (TABT). For those who are eligible, it’s a fantastic opportunity to upskill and gain a qualification at a fraction of the usual cost.
You must meet all criteria below:
* Note, for people under 20 years of age, this restriction does not apply.
(Please note: age is your age as at 1st January in the year in which you are starting the course).
Other important points
TABT has only been granted 20 JobTrainer places in 2022, so places are strictly limited. JobTrainer Funding is available to people only enrolling in our:
Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care or:
Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care
To access JobTrainer funding, you will need to be an Australian/New Zealand Citizen or Permanent Resident, and must be:
17 to 24 years old when the course starts; or
a job seeker of any age (a job seeker is a person who holds a current Concession Card or is currently unemployed).
Note: To be eligible, you must not have commenced a full qualification under JobTrainer before.
Eligibility for JobTrainer Funding is similar to Skills First Government Funding (see above); however, there are two big differences:
You don’t have to be ‘upskilling’ (so you can hold a higher qualification and still access this funding).
The ‘two qualifications at a level in a lifetime’ limit does not apply.
If you haven’t been eligible for government funding in the past, you may qualify for the JobTrainer funding initiative. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity – chat with one of our consultants today to see if you are eligible for a government-funded place.
