Foundation skill courses and language, literacy and numeracy bridging units from the new Foundation Skills Training Package will continue to be fully subsidised and accessible to individuals who are assessed to need them. An Upfront Assessment of Need is required for all prospective students. Funding periods generally run for six months and are announced and communicated via the Subsidised Training List.
