About Skills for All​

Skills for All is a South Australian government initiative that helps more people to start training, complete that training and gain employment.

Funding is available for courses from Certificate I to Advanced Diploma levels. Course fees are significantly reduced due to the Government funding, removing the financial barrier that many people face.

The list of courses funded under Skills for All is monitored to ensure they support the State’s priorities, meet industry needs and give those people trained the opportunity for employment.

Individuals need to meet course entry requirements and verify their eligibility with the Skills for All Training Provider of their choice before being enrolled in a government funded training place.

Qualifications at certificate level I and II are fully funded which means there are no course fees (there may be some incidental fees). Qualifications at certificate III level and above and Skill Sets are partly government funded and students will be expected to pay a course fee as well as any relevant incidental fees unless the course is identified as a Priority Course. Priority Courses range from Certificate III level up to Advanced Diploma level and have been identified for their strategic importance to the State.
