The Targeted Training and Apprenticeships Fund expired on 31 December 2022.

In June 2020, the Government announced the Targeted Training and Apprenticeships Fund (TTAF), just one part of the $1.6b Trades and Apprenticeships training package. This fund removed the costs for eligible programmes in targeted areas for learners, apprentices, and employers through to December 2022.

For TTAF eligibility and free enrolment, training agreements (with a 2022 training start date) needed to be received by Careerforce by Monday 12 December 2022 (to allow time for processing prior to the 31 December TTAF expiry).

You may still be eligible for Fees Free training 

If you are a first-time tertiary learner, or your first tertiary education was covered by the Targeted Training and Apprenticeship Fund (TTAF), you may be able to get up to $12,000 of your fees covered for one year’s study or two years’ training. See our Fees Free page for more details.
