NSW Skills List - Smart and Skilled
The NSW Skills List identifies the qualifications that are eligible for a government subsidy under Smart and Skilled.
What is the NSW Skills List?
Qualifications on the NSW skills list are eligible for government subsidy under NSW Smart and Skilled.
The NSW Skills List includes a range of vocational qualifications to support the diverse skills needs of NSW employers.
Training Services NSW developed the NSW Skills list in consultation with industry, training providers and the community.
The Skills List covers all industry sectors in NSW and includes qualifications up to Advanced Diploma.
The Skills List enables people to make more informed choices about their training, so they can get the skills they need to get a job, advance their career or continue onto further study.
What qualifications are on the list?
The Skills List covers:
- Certificate ll to Advanced Diploma qualifications
- Selected Foundation Skills courses
- All apprenticeships and selected traineeships.
How is the Skills List updated?
Details on the management of the Skills List, including how qualifications may be added, removed or updated on the list are available in the NSW Skills List Management Policy.
The Skills List is reviewed annually to ensure it meets the changing skill needs of industry.
It’s also updated regularly during the year to reflect changes to qualifications and vocational training orders for apprenticeships and traineeships.
Prices and payment arrangements
A fixed qualification price has been set for each qualification on the NSW Skills List.
The qualification price is calculated to cover the costs associated with training delivery and assessment, including teaching staff, administration, utilities, course-specific costs and capital costs. It covers both variable and fixed costs.
Approved training providers determine payment arrangements for their students. They must publish information about these arrangements and must inform students about them before enrolment.
