Benefits of VET

No HECS debt

Financial support from the NSW Government

Fee-free apprenticeships and financial support from the NSW Government

Worried about the cost of training? Apprenticeships are now fee-free in NSW, and there’s a heap of VET traineeships and courses subsidised under the our Smart and Skilled program. If you’re eligible, you only pay part of your training costs – we pay the rest.

Graduating with little to no debt means more freedom and more opportunity. The qualifications covered aren’t random, either. They’ve been chosen because there’s currently a lack of skilled people in those industry areas – meaning better odds for getting a job after you graduate.
