NSW Smart and Skilled

The federal and state Governments of Australia are committed to upskilling the Australian workforce, and have created a range of funding schemes and incentive opportunities, including subsidised skillsets and qualifications. 

If you are a NSW resident and/or work in NSW, you may be eligible for Smart and Skilled funding for your course.
Smart and Skilled is helping people in NSW attain knowledge and skills need to find a job, or to advance their careers. Smart and Skilled provides eligible students with access to government-subsidised training. 
ATS is an approved provider of Smart and Skilled subsidised courses across most regions of NSW, including the greater Sydney Metro region.
The State Government provides subsidised training only for those students who live and/or work in NSW. Should you move to another state, your entitlement to Smart and Skilled will end, and course fees may become payable.
Approval for Smart and Skilled subsidised funding requires you to:

  • Complete the ATS Applicaiton for Enrolment Form, in full
  • Provide ATS with your verified USI
  • Provide ATS with evidence of your Citizenship (Australian, New Zealand or Permanent Resident).
  • Provide ATS with evidence that you live in NSW - generally your Driver's license will be sufficient. If you don't reside in NSW, but you work in NSW, you will need to provide a letter from your employer confirming this.
  • You will also need to sign a consent form, to enrol you into the Smart and Skilled portal, and a declaration that you have read and understand a list of policies/rights and responsibilities etc.
