ACT Skilled Capital Funding

About Skilled Capital

Skilled Capital is an ACT Government funded training initiative offering a comprehensive range of services and subsidies to provide Canberrans the support they need to complete the training that is right for them. Skilled Capital offers an opportunity for the Canberra community to access quality training and fill critical skills needs areas across a range of industries such as community services, information technology, health and construction.

Courses available through Skilled Capital range from Certificate III to Advanced Diploma qualifications, as well as a selection of certificate II pathway qualifications. Skills sets which are shorter training courses comprising 1 or more units of competency linked to a licensing requirement or an industry need, are also offered under Skilled Capital.
