Smart and skilled
Government funded training for NSW residents
endota Wellness College is an approved Smart and Skilled provider. This means eligible students can have their tuition fees subsidised by the NSW Government.
What does government subsidised mean?
A subsidised course means that the NSW Government will pay a part of the student fee on your behalf – all you need to do is pay the balance, which is less than the qualification price.
What courses does eWC offer under Smart and Skilled?
Who is eligible for government subsidised training?
For new students in 2020, you are eligible for government subsidised training under Smart and Skilled if you are:
- an Australian or New Zealand citizen, permanent resident or humanitarian visa holder AND
- aged 15 years or older and no longer at school AND
- living or working in New South Wales.
If you meet these personal eligibility criteria, you will have access to a subsidised training place in all Smart and Skilled courses, regardless of any previous qualifications you may hold. Places may be limited in some higher level courses.
Unique Student Identifier (USI)
All students studying a nationally recognised qualification must have a Unique Student Identifier before enrolling. If you do not already have a USI, go to www.usi.gov.au to create one.
How much will I pay?
Fees for Smart and Skilled courses have been set by the NSW Government and will be the same for all NSW training organisations offering government subsidised courses.
Once you meet the eligibility requirements for a subsidised fee, how much you will actually pay depends on:
- which course you choose
- your previous post-school qualifications
- if you are an apprentice or trainee
- if you are eligible for a concession or exemption (see below)
- if you are eligible for Recognition of Prior Learning or credit transfer
To estimate your fee and check your eligibility, click here or contact a eWC course advisor today.
