Smart and Skilled

Forsythes Training is an approved provider of the
NSW Government's Smart and Skilled Program

Smart and Skilled provides NSW residents an entitlement to government subsidised courses in a wide range of qualifications up to Certificate III and selected higher level qualifications in targeted priority areas. Smart and Skilled give NSW residents the opportunity to develop their skills through training to get a job, advance their career or continue onto further study. Smart and Skilled students contribute, on average, just 10 to 45% of the course cost and the NSW Government subsidises the remaining amount. The student fee is generally less for lower-level courses. All training providers charge the same total student fee which was set by the NSW Government. Students with disabilities, students who receive Australian Government benefit or allowance and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students may qualify for fee exemptions or concessions.
