Under the new Skills For All government supported training is changing .... and it may help new arrivals to gain access to government subsidised (and in some cases free training.

Visas 475, 495, 487, 489, 163, 164, 165 are all eligible for this funded training ........... it doesn't mean you don't pay but you will certainly pay less than if you were paying 'international rates'. Certificate I and II level qualifications in some industry areas are also free ... might be of interest to some.

It is very new but there are details on http://skills.sa.gov.au/about-skills-for-all
