Skilled Capital is an ACT Government funded training initiative. Skilled Capital offers a comprehensive range of services to provide Canberrans the support they need to complete the training that is right for them. Skilled Capital will improve access to high quality training in areas of skills needs and maximise improved employment opportunities for students.
Skilled Capital provides subsidised training in a selection of qualifications from the ACT Skills Needs List, as well as a selection of Certificate II pathway qualifications that may lead to further training at a higher level. This means that through Skilled Capital students will undertake training in an area that has been identified as a skills need in the ACT. This will improve students employment opportunities and/or lead to further training options once the students have completed their qualification.
ACCCO is a pre-qualified supplier approved by the ACT Government to provide training for Skilled Capital qualifications. Please see further information on the Skilled Capital website here.
To be eligible for Skilled Capital, you must at the time of enrolment be:
living or working in the ACT, and
Previous education and training will not impact your eligibility for certificate III qualifications and above. However, you cannot be funded for a qualification you have completed within the last seven years. Also, you can only be subsidised for one Skilled Capital qualification at a time.
In each instance, the outcome of the Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) assessment conducted by your training provider must identify that a certificate II qualification is an appropriate learning pathway.
If you are not eligible for Skilled Capital or are seeking a different training pathway, such as an Australian Apprenticeship, there are a range of different options available to you.
