Eligibility rules are complex and a little confusing. Even if you meet the eligibility criteria there are more rules to determine how many courses you are eligible for. These are the rules that apply to see if you are eligible for a government-subsidised training place at ACE.
If you do not meet the Eligibility requirements for the Skills First Program please see below for the JOBTRAINER Initiative.
To be eligible for subsidised training, you have to be:
an Australian citizen
an Australian Permanent Resident (holder of a permanent visa)
a New Zealand citizen
You are eligible for subsidised training if you are:
under 20 years of age on 1 January this year & not currently enrolled in school.
If you are over 20 years old, you are only eligible for subsidised training for courses leading to a higher qualification than you already have completed.
How many courses am I eligible for?
If you meet the eligibility criteria, you can do more than 1 subsidised course, but there are limits:
You can't start more than 2 subsidised courses in a year. This includes courses you start but don't finish.
You can't do more than 2 subsidised courses at the same time.
You can't start more than 2 subsidised courses at the same qualification level in your lifetime.
Jessica has commenced Certificate III in Aged care level. She likes the course but wants to do Certificate III in Construction as well. Jess may commence & complete both courses at the same time or complete her Aged care certificate first before enroling into her 2nd subsidised course.
Once Jess completes both certificate III courses she may only commence courses at the Certificate IV level (or above).
Tom has Completed his Certificate III in Engineering, he is not eligible for another Certificate III course and can not enrol at ACE. Please see JOB TRAINER INITIATIVE BELOW
Lily has commenced a Certificate III course in Hospitality and wants to change careers. Because she has NOT COMPLETED her current course, she is eligible to enrol into the Certificate III course with ACE because she has not started more than 2 subsidised courses at the same qualification level in her lifetime.
Brad is completing his Certificate III in Agriculture. He doesn't like his course so he wants to start a Certificate III course in Warehousing. Ben has not done any other courses at the same level so he can now swap courses and commence another Certificate III course.
Brad does not like this new course either and wants to enrol into a Certificate III course with ACE. However, Brad has already commenced 2 courses at the same qualification level in his lifetime so he is not eligible for any course with ACE. He may enrol at another institution at the Certificate IV level or higher. Please see JOB TRAINER INITIATIVE BELOW
If you are enrolled at a school, you will not be able to receive a government-subsidised training place for a course through the Skills First Program. The Government supports schools in other ways to offer vocational training to their students, so you should discuss all your options with your school.
Under 17 years of age
Prior to enrolling an individual who will be under the age of 17 years at the time of the commencement of training:
a) if the individual has not yet completed Year 10, the Training Provider must sight and retain correspondence or a certificate signed by a Department Regional Director that exempts that individual from school attendance.
b) if the individual has completed Year 10, the Training Provider must sight and retain a completed ‘Transition From School Form’, or correspondence or a certificate signed by the school principal or a Department Regional Director that exempts that individual from school attendance.
Exclusions and Exemptions
These restrictions do not apply to courses on the Foundation Skills List, Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE)/Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) or to students starting training again in the same qualification (at the same or a different provider).
Please go to the Department of Education page below to check your eligibility
JOB TRAINER INITIATIVE
The Victorian Government has partnered with the Commonwealth Government to jointly invest up to $260 million under the JobTrainer Fund to increase access to training for thousands of Victorians who have been most impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. This investment creates an extra 50,000 free or low fee training places for young people and job seekers in over 144 priority needs courses.
There are limited places available at ACE so you must attend a pre-training review to determine your eligibility for this program.
What is JobTrainer?
The JobTrainer initiative (JobTrainer) is a joint Commonwealth and State initiative which provides additional funding to increase access to free or low fee training places for young people and job seekers.
JobTrainer complements the existing subsidised training available under Skills First as well as Free TAFE.
How does JobTrainer benefit students?
Under JobTrainer, subsidised training places are available to young people and job seekers, even if they don’t meet the ‘upskilling’ or ‘two at level in a lifetime’ Skills First eligibility requirements.
Eligible students under JobTrainer have access to low fee training in all JobTrainer courses and access to free training in Free TAFE courses at TAFEs.
Who can participate under JobTrainer?
A person can participate under JobTrainer if they are:
• 17 to 24 years old when the course starts; or
• a job seeker of any age.
They must not have commenced a full qualification under JobTrainer before.
What are the eligibility exemptions under JobTrainer?
The normal Skills First eligibility criteria apply to JobTrainer but with two exceptions.
No upskilling requirement:
You can grant an eligibility exemption to a student who doesn’t meet the upskilling requirement.
No ‘two at level in a lifetime’ limit:
You can grant an eligibility exemption to a student who doesn’t meet the ‘two at level in a lifetime’ limit.
What evidence do I need to enrol someone in JobTrainer?
In addition to the normal requirements for sighting and retaining evidence of eligibility for
Skills First, you also need to confirm a student is either aged 17 to 24 or a job seeker to enrol
them under the JobTrainer initiative.
Evidence of age
If a student is 17-24 years old, the only evidence you need for them to participate in
JobTrainer is proof of age. You must check their age using one of the accepted methods
under the Contract before enrolling them in JobTrainer.
Evidence of job seeker
If a student is over 24 and a job seeker you must sight and retain evidence of their job seeker status. We accept the following:
• a current and valid Commonwealth Health Care Card, Pensioner Concession Card or Veteran’s Gold
• a separation certificate from their employer
• a letter from their employer or company receiver stating that they have been made, or will be made,
redundant or retrenched.
ACE will need to check these documents once only, and before training starts. If these
documents are not available, then the job seeker can use the Evidence of Eligibility and
Student Declaration Form to make a signed declaration that they are unemployed.
Can apprentices and trainees do JobTrainer?
No. Apprentices and School-Based Apprentices are not eligible for JobTrainer.
You can enrol any 17 to 24-year-old in a non-School-Based JobTrainer traineeship, regardless of their employment status when they signed their training contract.
You can only enrol someone over 24-years old in a JobTrainer traineeship if they:
• hold a current and valid Commonwealth Health Care Card, Pensioner Concession Card or
Veteran’s Gold Card
• were unemployed at the commencement date of their training contract; or
• became employed within 31 days before the commencement date of
their training contract.
School-Based Trainees are not eligible for JobTrainer.
Will a JobTrainer enrolment affect a student’s future Skills First eligibility?
Yes. Like any other Skill First enrolment, participation in JobTrainer will be counted towards the upskilling requirement (clause 2.2(c) Schedule 1) and the ‘2x2x2’ volume limits (clause 2.3 Schedule 1) when assessing a student’s future Skills First eligibility.
Can asylum seekers do JobTrainer?
Yes. An asylum seeker who is participating in the Asylum Seeker VET Program is exempt from the citizenship and residency requirements and so can participate in JobTrainer.
