Smart and Skilled
4Life College is an approved provider of Smart and Skilled courses in NSW and is now taking enrolments for 2017.
To be eligible for a subsidised place in any Smart and Skilled program you must:
- be an Australian citizen, a permanent Australian resident, a humanitarian visa holder or a New Zealand citizen, and
- be aged 15 years or older, and
- living or working in New South Wales, and
- no longer at school.
Your eligibility for a government-subsidised Smart and Skilled course depends on your previous qualifications.
If you haven’t completed a Certificate IV or higher-level qualification, you are entitled to enrol in a subsidised course up to Certificate III level.
You can enrol in subsidised training at Certificate IV, Diploma or Advanced Diploma level, depending on the availability of funding for these courses. Having completed a Certificate IV or higher-level qualification does not affect eligibility.
You can check your eligibility and obtain an estimate of your student contribution via the Smart and Skilled website smartandskilled.nsw.gov.au/are-you-eligible.

- CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing)

- CHC43015 Certificate IV in Ageing Support
- CHC43115 Certificate IV in Disability

Fees apply for your selected program. The fee amount you pay and the government contribution is dependent on your eligibility. The courses are subsidised for all eligible participants with a further concession rate available for those in receipt of some government benefits. The schedule of fees can be accessed at: training.nsw.gov.au/smartandskilled.
Student fees are set for the whole qualification, rather than year by year.
If you are a Centrelink recipient we will need documentation from you which will assist us in calculating your fee.
