Courses available for government subsidy

Subsidised Training List

The Subsidised Training List (STL) shows the range of courses that may be subsidised through the South Australian Government's WorkReady initiative.

The STL is routinely updated and released to add new and replacement courses and to remove courses that are no longer subsidised. The STL also displays information about funding conditions and the number of places available to providers for the funding period. Funding periods generally run for six months and are announced and communicated via the STL.

Training Providers must always check the current version of STL when enrolling students.

Guide to terms used on the STL:
