NSW Smart and Skilled

Do you live or work in NSW?

Linx Institute (RTO Code 91792) is an approved Smart and Skilled provider which means you might be eligible to enrol into subsidised courses including early childhood education, aged care, individual support, disability and community services.

For Students

You could be eligible to apply for Smart and Skilled subsidised training from the NSW government. You will need to meet the following eligibility requirements:

• 15 years old or over, and
• no longer at school, and
• living or working in NSW (or an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person living in specific NSW border areas), and
• an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, Australian permanent humanitarian visa holder or New Zealand citizen or

Providing you meet the personal eligibility criteria for Smart and Skilled, you’re entitled to enrol in a subsidised course up to Certificate III level.

You can also enrol in subsidised training in targeted priority areas at Certificate IV and Diploma level, depending on the availability of funding for these courses.

Where eligible Smart and Skilled students are granted recognition of prior learning or credit transfer for one or more units of competency, the qualification price is adjusted and a new reduced student fee is determined.
