Program Eligibility

To access subsidised training under Smart and Skilled a student must meet the eligibility criteria. Eligibility criteria are available here: https://smartandskilled.nsw.gov.au/are-you-eligible

Are you:

  • 15 years old or over?
  • No longer at school?
  • Living or working in NSW?
  • An Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, humanitarian visa holder or New Zealand citizen?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to all four questions, then you’re eligible to enrol in a government-subsidised course with an approved Smart and Skilled training provider.

All students enrolling in a Smart and Skilled course will be required to supply a Unique Student Identifier (USI), and will be requested to do so on their enrolment form. If you need a USI you can apply online here (only takes a few minutes!): https://www.usi.gov.au
All students enrolling in a Smart and Skilled course must complete an enrolment form.

SEIA is required to obtain further information from students who are studying a Targeted Priority course:

  • Consent from a student either verbally or in writing to use and disclose a student’s personal information to the NSW Department of Education and Communities and other government Agencies
  • A student declaration that the student has provided accurate and complete information, is aware of any subcontracting arrangements (if applicable) and has been provided with the Fee information relevant to their enrolment and all appropriate student information
All students are entitled to seek Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) as an alternative means of establishing competency for all or part of their course. Additionally SEIA will recognise Statements of Attainment issued by other RTOs and will grant credit towards the Smart and Skilled qualifications for current and equivalent units of competency. For more information on SEIA’s RPL and Credit process please email info@seia.edu.au
Providers of Smart and Skilled courses, such as SEIA, are paid partly by the NSW government and partly by the student or their employer. The ‘Fee’ component referred to below is the part of the payment to SEIA that is made by the student or their employer.

On completion of an enrolment form and provision of any evidence required SEIA will use the Smart and Skilled Provide Calculator to determine the Fee to be paid by the student. This will be advised to the student as part of the enrolment process.

Depending on circumstances students may be eligible for fee concessions or fee-free training. Students will need to supply evidence of their circumstances according to the Smart and Skilled Fee Administration Policy.

The student Fee is payable by the student to SEIA according to the SEIA terms and conditions.

Students who wish to withdraw from their course without penalty must do so in accordance with the following policy:
The ‘Census Date’ for any course will fall 20% of the way through the scheduled duration of the course. Students will be advised of the census date before commencement of the course.

  • Any student who wishes to withdraw must complete a Notice of Withdrawal form, available from SEIA administration.
  • Any student who withdraws from a course prior to or on the Census Date will have a full refund of any fees paid.
  • Any student who wishes to withdraw from a course after the Census Date may apply for a refund, which normally would not be paid, but may be favourably considered on compassionate or special consideration grounds.
  • Any student who withdraws after the Census Date, and where a refund is not granted by the college, may appeal this decision according to the SEIA Student Complaints and Appeals Policy and Procedure.
Students may have part of their fee refunded in the following circumstances:

  • Where the student is gaining credit for previously completed accredited training. In such circumstances the student will be refunded a pro rata amount based on the percentage of the course that the credit covers.
  • Where SEIA is no longer able to deliver Smart and Skilled training.
  • Where the student through circumstances beyond his/her control is unable to continue in the course – such as a medical condition, or family/personal circumstances.
Depending on circumstances students may be eligible for fee concessions or fee-free training. Students will need to supply evidence of their circumstances according to the Smart and Skilled Fee Administration Policy.
Information for students about withdrawing from or deferring their course is available here: 
Further information for students including the Student Handbook and policies and procedures are available on the SEIA Student Information page.
