Government Funded Courses

The Australian Government is committed to training people to help them reach their full potential and make the most of a wide range of learning opportunities offered in this country.

The Government offers financial incentives to people to undertake training and helps subsidise some courses.

The shifting nature of government policy means the funding and incentives landscape is subject to rapid changes. As a result, TrainSmart Australia recommends that individuals and organisations act now in order to maximise existing opportunities while they abound.
