The Department of Education is updating its methodology for selecting qualifications for government subsidy to ensure that all qualifications continue to meet the needs of the labour market and achieve good student outcomes.

A discussion paper has been released for stakeholder feedback which details the Department’s new approach for selecting qualifications for government subsidy.

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. 

The Skills List covers all industry sectors in NSW and includes qualifications up to Advanced Diploma. 

Training Services NSW develops the NSW Skills list in consultation with industry, training providers and the community. 

It 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.
