Are you interested in returning to study, up-skilling or changing your career? Have you used your government training funding entitlements and not received the outcome you expected? We are now offering 1000 Vocational Training Scholarships for individuals who previously did not qualify for funding via the Victorian Training Guarantee scheme.

In the past, government funding for vocational courses was not available to those who had previously trained at the same or higher level. For a limited time, eligible TAFE students can save $1,000s on the course of their choice via a scholarship program offered by Box Hill institute and CAE. VET Student Loans means you might also be able to study now and pay later.

Funded by the Victorian Government, Box Hill Institute and CAE Training Scholarships will enable students to obtain a substantial fee reduction equivalent to the current government subsidy when studying a qualification at a lower level than they already hold. The scholarships are aimed at people who want to re-skill, re-enter the workforce and reignite their career prospects.

There are 1,000 scholarship places across 5 categories:

  1. Career Change Training Scholarship
  2. Career Progression Training Scholarship
  3. Vocational Teaching Training Scholarship
  4. Return To Work Training Scholarship
  5. Lilydale Lakeside Campus Training Scholarship

Simply apply for an accredited further education course at Box Hill Institute or CAE and we’ll confirm whether you are eligible right away.

Limited places are available so contact us today!


Anyone seeking to retrain or upskill who was not previously eligible for The Victorian Training Guarantee funding is eligible. Priority will be given to those students who:

  • Have completed a course and have been unable to find employment within their field of study, or
  • Have completed a course and wish to retrain, or
  • Are returning to study after a period of unemployment or absence from work (e.g. redundancy, parental leave), or
  • Wish to complete training in order to become a vocational teacher.

Box Hill Institute and CAE Training Scholarships are funded by the Victorian Government and administered by Box Hill Institute and CAE.

No, the scholarship will provide a substantial reduction to the cost of your course, however you’ll still be required to pay reduced course fees, and the cost of all course materials (e.g. books and equipment). The fee reduction means you will pay the same amount for the course as the government-subsidised rate.

Simply apply for an accredited further education course at Box Hill Institute or CAE. During the application process you will be asked to outline your reasons for studying. We will use this response to assess your eligibility for the scholarship. We will advise you the results before confirming your enrolment.
