What is Smart and Skilled?

NSW Smart and Skilled provides eligible NSW students with subsidised training up to and including Certificate III, as well as government funding for higher-level courses (Certificate IV and above) in targeted priority areas.

The focus of NSW Smart and Skilled is getting people into the workforce by helping them improve language, literacy and numeracy as well as gain specific job skills. Certificates I, II and III are considered the minimum requirements for getting a job.

People who meet the NSW Smart and Skilled eligibility conditions are entitled to enrol in a subsidised course up to Certificate III regardless of the level of any previous qualifications held. So if you already hold an Advanced Diploma of Hospitality you can still apply for funding for a Certificate III in Business Administration or Civil Construction.

While NSW Smart and Skilled focuses on entry-level qualifications, subsidised training is also available for some Certificate IV, Diploma or Advanced Diploma level in targeted areas.

To be eligible for NSW Smart and Skilled funding you must be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, Australian humanitarian visa holder or New Zealand citizen; 15 years old or over; no longer at school and living or working in NSW.
