Skilled Capital

Skilled Capital

The ACT Government's Skilled Capital training initiative is aimed at improving access to high quality training in skills shortage areas. The ACT Government's Skilled Capital training initiative is aimed at improving access to high quality training in areas of skills need and maximising improved employment outcomes for students. The initiative also provides a range of support services to ensure students accessing training receive the help they need to successfully complete their chosen qualification.

The initiative will give eligible students the opportunity to complete a nationally recognised qualification and receive a completion payment from the ACT Government upon successful completion of their Skilled Capital qualification. Places are limited and subject to availability and eligibility.
