Under the NSW Government’s Smart and Skilled scheme, eligible students with a disability, as well as eligible students who are the dependents of Disability Support Pension recipients, will be exempt from paying fees to attain nationally recognised qualifications.

The fee exemptions are designed to help remove barriers to training experienced by people with disability and apply to Smart and Skilled approved training courses regardless of the number or level of qualifications in which students enrol.

Develop the skills and experience you need to build a career.

The Smart and Skilled initiative commenced in NSW last year and also includes free pre-apprenticeship courses as well as a cap on the cost of traineeships and apprenticeships for prospective students.
