More free TAFE courses for 2024


Four new courses in hospitality, youth work and tourism are now available through the state government’s Free TAFE initiative giving Victorians more opportunities to learn new skills and grow their careers.

Melton MP Steve McGhie is encouraging prospective students to look at courses on offer through the Free TAFE initiative, providing Victorians with more access to vocational training.

“We know that TAFE is an equal choice to uni- and if you enrol in a free TAFE course, you can get started in your career without debt,” he said.

Since the program was introduced in 2019 it has grown to include more than 80 TAFE qualifications and short courses and has helped more than 156,000 students save almost $423 million in tuition fees.

With enrolments now open, students can kick start their careers or upskill to gain new experience or qualifications, across a range of sectors like nursing, building

and construction, community services and cyber security.

Free TAFE courses are available to all Victorians, regardless of their existing qualification level, and it’s also possible to do more than one free TAFE course provided it’s within the same priority pathway.
