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.
