STUDENTS at Chisholm TAFE in Frankston will soon be able to undertake more study for free.
The free TAFE pathways initiative is part of the state government’s free TAFE program. Students who have completed a free TAFE course will now have the opportunity to undertake a course in the same industry area without cost.
The free TAFE program covers industries including nursing, accounting, construction, dental, information technology, education, and early childhood.
Chisholm Institute Chief Executive Officer Stephen Varty said the new pathway program is a “game-changer”.
“We are really excited about the free TAFE pathways program. By choosing a pathway, students can benefit from increased flexibility when undertaking multiple courses and will be better skilled when transitioning into the workforce and gaining employment,” he said.
“The free TAFE pathways program highlights the important function of training providers like Chisholm in supporting industries with a shortage of skilled workers. With so many industries to choose from and no ATAR required, learning has never been more cost-effective and accessible for students, and scholarships are available to support eligible students with the cost of materials.”
