Everyone knows that formal training is important.The good news is that the Victorian government agrees. Victoria guarantees a subsidised training scheme, called the Skills First program, for every Victorian who does not have a post school qualification, or who wants to gain a higher level qualification than they already hold.
This is the best time for individuals who want to sharpen their skills and gain qualifications to look at vocational education training courses. To secure a job, to be better at their existing job, upgrade their skills to further their employment prospects, whatever the reason! As long as the eligibility criterionis met, the government is committed to helping Victorians undertake vocational training and upskill.
The real question is, are there any government funded aged care courses in Victoria? KAL Training offers a CHC43015 Certificate IV in Ageing Support, funded by the Skills First program.
a) An individual must be either:
b) Residing in Victoria and enrolling and commencing training in a course or qualification provided by the Training Provider between the Commencement Date and 31 December 2018 inclusive; and
c) Under 20 or upskilling (that is, are you seeking to enrol in a nationally recognised qualification that is at a higher level than the highest qualification you have previously completed)
d) commence a maximum of two courses subsidised through the Skills First program in a calendar year.Where an individual is enrolled in a course(s) that is scheduled to commence later in that calendar year, this course(s) must be counted for the purpose of this clause when assessing eligibility;
