Choosing a training provider​

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.

Skills for All Training Providers are approved because they offer high quality training, strong links with industry and student support services.

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.

Ask yourself

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.
