Fee Free TAFE and vocational education

Providing more support for key industries and priority student groups.

What is Fee Free TAFE and vocational education?

Fee Free TAFE and vocational education is a joint partnership between the Australian and South Australian Governments to support accessible training for more South Australians.

It represents a significant investment into training delivery in South Australia and will support industries facing skills shortages, growth industries and emerging sectors, creating more opportunities for South Australians to access new and high-level skills in these priority areas.

The right training has never been more important and now it’s even more accessible and affordable through Fee Free TAFE and vocational education with particular focus on supporting people in priority groups including Aboriginal people, LGBTIQ+ community, veterans, young people, job seekers, unpaid carers, women in non-traditional fields of study, people with disability and people who are eligible for certain visa sub classes.

What is available through Fee Free TAFE?

Fee Free TAFE and vocational education places in qualifications, accredited skill sets and foundation skill courses will be available through TAFE and selected non-government training organisations and will focus on priority areas including:

  • Care industries such as aged and disability care, health care and childcare
  • Technology and digital
  • Hospitality and tourism
  • Construction
  • Agriculture
  • Defence and manufacturing
  • Creative industries
  • Education

The Fee Free TAFE and vocational education course list is now available.

Fee Free training places are a boost to already available government subsidised training courses.
