Expect high quality training, leading to a qualification that improves your chances of getting the job you want. Training providers differ in how they operate and what they offer: it pays to do your homework before choosing one.
Why a Skills for All Training Provider?
Skills for All Training Providers are Registered Training Organisations who have a contract with the Minister for Employment, Higher Education and Skills to offer funded training under Skills for All to eligible students.

Choosing a Skills for All Training Provider
Before you decide to enrol in a course, think about what you need and then compare what different training providers offer.
Use this checklist to help you compare different training providers.
As a learner you should ask yourself:
- What are my strengths and weaknesses as a learner?
- Do I need help with studies or can I study independently?
- Will this study fit in with my circumstances? Consider your work and family commitments
Ask a training provider
Ask several Skills for All Training Providers about:
- training, assessment and support services
- attendance requirements
- your rights and obligations as a student – including attendance
- fees and refund policy.
What you need to know before you sign a contract
Read the contract carefully and understand it before you sign anything or pay any money. Ask a friend to help you if there is anything you do not understand. It is important to know the attendance requirements and refund policy.
