Funded Training ACT – Skilled Capital

Skilled Capital

Skilled Capital is an ACT Government training initiative, funded by the ACT and Australian Governments. The Skilled Capital initiative provides $21 million over three years to improve access to high quality training in areas of skills need and maximise improved employment outcomes for students. The initiative also provides a comprehensive range of support services to ensure students accessing training receive the help they need to successfully complete their chosen qualification. Skilled Capital allows participants to study for a fraction of the regular fee-for-service course fees.  Skilled Capital funded training is a great way to commence study and start a career in the early childhood education and care sector.
