Traineeships for School Assistants

School Assistants and staff working in preschools or with students with special needs may be eligible to apply for funding for training in either the Certificate III in Children's Services or Certificate IV in Education Support.

Training may be undertaken in face-to-face sessions or online depending on the Registered Training Organisation you choose.

The traineeships are currently undersubscribed. I encourage you to apply for funding to undertake one of these qualifications to enhance your knowledge and skills. It’s unclear how long the funding will continue!  

If you have already undertaken one of these qualifications online and have not been funded, please contact me by emailing or calling 62727900.  I will need the following information: Course name; Registered Training Organisation; Date of commencement and completion; Reason why you were not funded.

You can also contact the ACT Education & Training Directorate directly: contact David Wintle on 62050327 or Sarah Harris on 62050335,
