Government Funding Opportunities For You

With government support for training recently increased, now is the perfect time to gain new skills or upgrade skills in your workforce. Through our long term contracts with the Australian and Victorian Government, we provide you with access to a range of funding opportunities to support you in training your staff.

Disadvantaged students are encouraged to apply for all AVTES programs.

Apprenticeships & Traineeships

Apprenticeships and traineeships are undertaken by students in employment. AVTES provides the training program on-the-job. We have courses available for front and back of house staff, for line staff and supervisors.

Where eligible, training is delivered with Victorian and Commonwealth Government funding. Employers of eligible students may also receive financial incentives from the Commonwealth Government.

Skills First Program

The Skills First Program allows eligible individuals to access government funding for training when up-skilling. It focusses on training that leads to jobs.

So if you are a small business owner you can now access high quality, industry relevant training at a fraction of the normal cost. Even for existing and casual employees who were previously ineligible.

We have courses for front and back of house staff, for line staff to managers.
