Eligibility for Government Funding

The Victorian Training Guarantee

The Victorian Training Guarantee (VTG) is making vocational education and training more accessible to people who do not hold a post-school qualification, or who want to gain a higher level qualification than they already hold.
This entitlement to a Victorian government subsidised place in recognised national training can be accessed at any time and will continue to be available for training at successively higher levels.
For all enrolments, individuals accessing the Victorian Training Guarantee will only be eligible to commence a maximum of two courses/qualifications at the same Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) level in their lifetime. Individuals will also only be eligible to commence a maximum of two accredited courses with the title ‘Course in…’ in their lifetime.
Please contact one of our enrolment team to assess if you are eligible for VTG funding.

Unique Student Identifier (USI)

To apply for your USI please go to http://www.usi.gov.au/

Victorian Student Number (VSN)

The Victorian Student Number (VSN) is a student identification number that will be assigned by the Department of Education and Training (DET) to all students in government and non-government schools, and students in Vocational Education and Training Providers.
The number, which is unique to each student, will be used as a key identifier on a student’s records, and will remain with the student throughout his or her education, until reaching the age of 25.
The VSN provides DET with the capability to accurately detect patterns of student movement through, and departure from, the Victorian education and training system. It improves the collection and analysis of timely and accurate data about education in Victoria.
