South Australia’s continuing prosperity will depend on having the skilled workers needed for growth in existing, new and emerging industries.

Skills for All is a South Australian Government initiative that encourages more people to enter training, complete that training and gain employment.

Skills for All funding is available for courses from Certificate I to Advanced Diploma levels.

Course fees are significantly reduced due to the Government funding provided, removing the financial barrier that many people face.

The list of courses available under Skills for All is monitored to ensure they support the State’s priorities, meet industry needs and give those people trained the opportunity for employment.

Individuals need to meet course entry requirements and verify their eligibility with the Skills for All Training Provider of their choice before being enrolled in a Government funded training place.

Qualifications at certificate level I and II and Priority Courses are fully funded which means there are no course fees, however there may be some incidental fees. Qualifications at certificate III level and above and Skill Sets are partly government funded and students will be expected to pay a course fee as well as any relevant incidental fees.

Priority Courses are Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) courses or general courses from Certificate III level to Advanced Diploma level which have been identified for their strategic importance to the State.

Delivering quality training and assessment services assures students, industry and the community have confidence in the VET system in South Australia. Skills for All conducts student satisfaction and graduate outcome surveys annually, the results are published on the Skill for All website.
