Subsidised Courses

Subsidised training is usually a partnership between WEA Hunter and a government agency/ department aiming to promote access and increase vocational education and training outcomes for a number of reasons. Identified skill shortages or breaking down barriers to training and employment among many of the reasons subsidised training may be offered through WEA Hunter.

Our subsidised training courses are designed specifically to meet the needs of our students and emphasises client support to achieve successful training and labour market outcomes.

Subsidised training in our Community Programs courses are often targeted towards people who are able to work but are having difficulty gaining employment. This includes:

  • Aboriginal people
  • Young people (15-24 years of age) who are at risk of not making a successful transition from school to work or are unemployed or underemployed.
  • People with a disability who are unemployed or underemployed
  • Migrants who are unemployed or underemployed
  • Refugees
  • Other unemployed people

Students enrolled in a subsidised training course work with our Student Support Services (SSS) and develop individual pathway plans to assist students to remain on their pathway to success. Please visit the SSS section of the website to see the full details of what is offered through this free service.
