How it works

  • Step


    Find your location and check your eligibility. You'll need to submit a brief application, which tells us more about you and your motivations. No prior tertiary education is needed in order to apply.

  • Step

    Interview and course matching

    We’ll review your application and get in touch to learn more about you. If you pass this first stage of selection, we’ll match you with a world-class training provider and a course best suited to your interests, aptitude and career aspirations.

  • Step

    Training provider assessment

    Training providers will do a second round of the selection process to ensure your suitability. Our goal here is to validate your ability to learn and apply new skills - we don't want to waste your time!

    Ongoing Support

    We’ll help you find a job you love at a higher salary. Even after you’ve got a job, we’ll be there to help with career progression, or switching jobs if things don't work out.

Unlock your full potential

Future-proof your skills

The skills required to succeed in work are changing. We’ll prepare you for the future world of work. We’ll train you for in-demand jobs in industries facing skills shortages.

Gain the freedom to choose

Training will unlock career opportunities you otherwise wouldn’t have access to, giving you more freedom and control over your future.

Get a job you love

We back those who back themselves. People who haven’t worked recently are encouraged to apply. If you’ve got the ambition to return to meaningful work, we’ll provide the assistance to get there.

I put study on hold when I had my family. When you work shift work, you don’t have a lot of availability to book in childcare. Forte was supportive of childcare costs and then support while I was job-seeking.
