What is ACT Skilled Capital Government Funding?
Skilled Capital funding is a training initiative of the ACT government which provides a comprehensive range of services and subsidies for Canberrans. It aims to improve employment outcomes with high-quality training in areas of skills needs.
What does the Skilled Capital funding program provide?
The Skilled Capital program provides government subsidies for a range of qualifications, from Certificate II, to Certificate IV, Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas.
