William Angliss Institute is part of the Victorian Government's Free TAFE for Priority Courses Initiative, meaning the Government will pay the tuition fees for selected courses for eligible students.
This is your chance to get an in demand qualification without financial hardship or incurring long-term debt.
The priority course list includes 30 non-apprenticeship courses and 20 courses that provide pathways to apprenticeships (also known as 'pre-apprenticeships'). Free priority courses were selected based on the occupations prioritised as the most in demand by employers, which means in industries where there are likely to be more jobs.
