Do I need to be in a traineeship to access the funding for all eligible qualifications?

In most cases, you will be required to enter into a training contract under a Traineeship with an employer to access Skilling South Australia subsidies.

However, there are a few select qualifications that have been identified on a Training Priority List by the South Australian Government, which are eligible for subsidies outside of a training contract.

Please speak to an Upskilled Education Consultant for further information on eligibility and availability, or see our FAQ on training contracts and how Australian apprenticeships and traineeships work.
