Skilling for Recovery
THE NSW GOVERNMENT'S FUNDING PROGRAM
Skilling for Recovery provides fee-free training places in high priority full qualifications. This will provide you with the opportunity to reskill, retrain and redeploy to areas where there are skills shortages and emerging employment opportunities.
To be eligible for NSW Skilling for Recovery you must be:

In addition to the above eligibility criteria you must meet any one of the criteria below:

WHAT IF I AM NOT ELIGIBLE?
Should you be ineligible for a government subsidised place, Work Savvy offers this exact qualification under our fee-for-service (FFS) arrangement.
For more information about this payment option, read the Fee for Service section available on each of the individual qualification pages.
Work Savvy does not accept upfront payments of more than $1,500. If a student’s fee is more than this amount, the support of a flexible payment plan will be offered to the student..
RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING (RPL)
Students may be eligible for RPL or Credit Transfer. For more information on how to apply for this please see our student handbook or contact us.
UNIQUE STUDENT IDENTIFIER (USI)
From the first of January 2015, all students participating in Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications are required to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). We are required by Commonwealth legislation to have this number recorded for your training and cannot enrol new students without this number. If you do not have a USI, you can find more information on obtaining one here. Your USI may be used for reporting Training Activity Data to the Department.
