NSW Smart and Skilled

Traineeships are a proven pathway to well-paid jobs in a diverse range of careers. In NSW, traineeships are also fee free.

There’s never been a better time to start a traineeship in NSW. The NSW Government is paying the course cost for 70,000 new traineeships – meaning trainees undertaking a government funded traineeship course no longer face a student fee of up to $1000.

Traineeships are a great career pathway. They combine on-the-job training with formal study to give you the skills and experience employers are looking for. Traineeships generally take around 1-2 years to complete, and trainees earn a salary while they learn.

Fee Free Traineeships

Fee free traineeships are available to NSW trainees – including school-based trainees whose training:

  • is funded under the NSW Government’s Smart and Skilled Program
  • commenced on or after 1 January 2020.

This fee structure applies to new entrant trainees only. 

NSW Existing-worker trainees are not eligible to a government subsidy under any Smart and Skilled Program for the qualification that supports their traineeship. The definition of an existing worker according to State Training Services is someone who “has been employed within an enterprise continuously for more than three months full time or more than 12 months casual or part-time or a combination of both, immediately before commencement of the training contract.” 

If you have previously commenced your Smart and Skilled traineeship training before 1 January 2020 and are returning to a traineeship after 1 January 2020, you will be eligible for fee free for the remainder of your training if your traineeship course or your employer has changed.

Each student is limited to a maximum of commencing three fee free traineeships under this initiative.


Consumer Protection Strategy

When choosing to access a training place subsidised by the NSW and Commonwealth Governments under the Smart and Skilled Program, it is important for you to get an understanding of this program from the NSW Government website.

Been through other training facilities and Kool Kids is both the best and most helpful one I’ve experienced. Highly recommend them to all looking into further studies!

Great layout on website- clear precise with the addition of marking criteria underneath the question that helps with finding the right answer.

Lovely helpful trainers with no amount of questions or enquires too much to ask of them. Nothing short of amazing and I was lucky enough to have both Vanessa and Alison. Completed my certificate 3 and not much longer to go through before also ticking off my diploma.

Kool Kids for my choice over all!!

Coming from retail and hospitality background, I was nervous to start my Diploma of Early Childcare and Education, however, once I started the online course, I instantly relaxed and knew that I had made the right decision. I had heard good things about Kool Kids training college which is why I chose to study with them, and once I began, I found it had the easiest online platform to navigate, with each assessment having set question areas such as case studies, practical aspects, and reflection questions to ensure you are gaining full knowledge and understanding of each assessment task. The trainers and centres make life and studying smooth and uncomplicated even when working full time, as everyone is happy to help and lend an ear when you need. Overall, I have absolutely loved studying with Kool Kids training college and have been so lucky to have such a great trainer like Amy to guide me through the process!

After finishing my diploma I can now thank KKTC for providing the best style of training possible - with everything online now it made it easier for me to prioritise certain parts of my assessments due to the way it is all set out. I will definitely be recommending KKTC to anyone wanting to study early childhood.

I have really enjoyed completing my diploma with Kool kids. I have found that my course was enjoyable and I had the most support from Michelle and Rhiannon. When I needed help it was only a message away for help. Rhiannon was very patient and understanding when I found some questions challenging. I 100% recommend Kool kids online training to anyone and I highly recommend Rhiannon as she was very patient with each student.

How understanding and supporting both Michelle and Rhiannon were, how much this training helped me to become the educator I am today

I recently completed my Diploma with Koolkids Training. After years of no study I was hesitant and nervous to sign up. However from the moment I touched base I was so impressed with the level of support and encouragement from my Trainer Alison who was always only a call or message away day or night. I would highly recommend Koolkids

Studying with KKTC is simple and trouble-free. The workload is set out in a way that is achievable without being overwhelming. The online platform used is easily accessible and straightforward, and I love having my trainer, Amy, making sure I understand everything I‘m learning about. She has been by my side since I started, and is super approachable and is always available to work with me.

As a mature age student taking on study with Kool Kids Training College for a new career path was very daunting but Alison and Bronwyn were amazing.  Their support, guidance, encouragement and friendship helped me to successfully complete my Diploma and achieve my goal of working with children.

Tara’s passion, flexibility and compassion, are some of the key factors that have made my Diploma studies so enjoyable and successful. I have received so much workplace support, even during the lockdown period, Tara supported me to achieve my goals. Kool Kids Training College is unlike anything else offered in Melbourne I highly recommend them, if you're looking for a trainer that genuinely cares about their students!

Our partnership with Kool Kids Training College enables our team members at Only About Children to gain the relevant knowledge and skills while obtaining their Early Childhood qualifications. The team of dedicated and skilled trainers are committed to supporting each individual throughout their learning journey, guiding them to successfully become qualified in Early Childhood Education and Care.
