About Skills First

Skills First is a Victorian government-funded initiative that provides subsidised training to eligible students to get them ready for jobs today and in the future.

AMES Australia provides government-subsidised training places across many of our centres, and if you’re eligible for Skills First funding you may be able to complete your course for free or for a reduced fee.

Students eligible for Skills First can enrol in General English courses, Work Skills, or learn the skills for jobs in specific industries such as childcare or aged care.
