The Victorian Training Guarantee is making TAFE training more accessible to people
who do not have a post-school qualification or who want to gain a higher level qualification
than they already have. For every eligible person seeking to undertake accredited
training at South West TAFE, the Victorian Training Guarantee will provide funding
to support that training.
Eligibility for access to a Victorian Training Guarantee government supported place
will depend on certain factors such as citizenship, age and prior educational history.
Please speak with your Course Coordinator or the Customer Service Centre to determine
Foundation Level courses assist people to develop the skills they need in literacy,
numeracy, language, self management and job-readiness.
Skills creation courses are for people who wish to undertake basic training in an
industry area, either because they need to use the relevant skills immediately in
the workplace, or because they wish to prepare for entry to work in that industry.
Skills building courses are for people who want to enter a skilled trade or practice
an occupation that calls for skills and knowledge beyond the basic level. Qualifications
at this level require significant commitment by learners and may provide entry to
licensed or otherwise regulated skilled occupations.
Skills deepening courses are for people who are progressing to a higher level within
an industry area in which they already have employment or who wish to enter employment
at the more skilled, specialised or paraprofessional level.
Refer to the Course Information brochure for the category your course belongs to.
