Under recent changes introduced by the Victorian Government community members will no longer need to meet specific age, upskilling or reskilling requirements, meaning that most will now be eligible to study selected courses under the Free TAFE program.

"If you’ve been considering studying, there has never been a better time to enroll at GOTAFE. There are so many courses on offer in a range of different areas, available under Free TAFE. Now is your chance to explore your opportunities and find your passion."

Travis Heeney, CEO GOTAFE

“We know our regional economy is changing faster than ever, and we must be responsive to the local industry, employment, and training needs of our community. The expansion of the Free TAFE program will provide more opportunities for our local community members to access high-quality training and support the growth of our skilled workforce, aligned with the needs of our industries and communities,” he said.

GOTAFE currently offers 40 Free TAFE courses including the Diploma of Accounting (FNS50217), Diploma of Nursing (HLT54121), Certificate IV in Community Services (CHC42015), Certificate IV in Cyber Security (22603VIC), Certificate III in Hospitality (SIT30616) and many more.

“Students can study for free in a number of industries that are currently facing high demand including Nursing, Community Services, Veterinary Nursing, Hospitality, Training and Assessment and Early Childhood Education and Care. This will lead to opportunities in important areas and make a positive difference in the community,” Mr Heeney said.
