What is a skill set?

The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) — the national regulator for vocational education and training (VET) — defines a skill set as follows.

"A single unit of competency or a combination of units of competency from a training package which link to a licensing or regulatory requirement, or a defined industry need."

In VET, a qualification or course is made up of a number of units of competency, and each of those units has defined learning outcomes based on the skills and knowledge it covers. A skill set is developed by choosing individual units of competency that target a specific set of skills and knowledge, to meet the needs of industry or a particular job role.

Skill sets are also used to upskill workers — for example; if cleaning staff at a hospital needed to learn about infection control, or if office workers needed to learn some management skills — in situations where a full qualification is not required.

Because skill sets are based on nationally accredited units of competency, when you successfully complete a skill set short course those units can count towards a full qualification if you decide to do further study. 

Will I receive a certificate when I complete a skill set?

Because the skill sets are not a full qualification, you will not receive a certificate.

You will receive a Statement of Attainment that lists all of the units of competency you completed in the skill set. This statement is recognised nationally as an official record. It verifies that you have completed those units, so you can receive credit for them should you continue on to further study.

Can I go on to further study after I've completed a skill set?

Yes, completing a skill set is a great way to find out whether this is the industry area for you, and decide if you want to do further study and gain a full qualification. 

The Skills Ready skill sets contain units of competency taken from nationally recognised vocational education and training (VET) qualifications. This means they work perfectly as a pathway to further study.

The Statement of Attainment you receive on completion of a skill set verifies that you have completed those units, so you will receive credit for them should you continue on to further study.

Who is eligible for free job ready skill sets?

Our job ready skill sets are available to everyone, and 100% free for the following eligible students.   

  • Persons aged 15—24 years at the time of enrolment (excluding school students)
  • Secondary school-aged persons who are not enrolled at school

  • Persons and dependents of persons receiving the Youth Allowance, AUSTUDY or ABSTUDY

    • a pensioner concession card or Health Care Card; or
    • a Repatriation Health Benefits Card issued by the Department of Veterans' Affairs
  • Dependents of persons who are inmates of a custodial institution

Course and resource fees will apply for non-eligible students.

If you don't meet these eligibility requirements, please go to this page to find out more about course and resources fees. 

For further information about the job ready skill sets, including where they are available and how to enrol, please select Skill sets.

Can I do more than one fee free skill set?

Yes, subject to practical study load factors, there is no limit to the number of fee free skill sets that can be undertaken by a student.

Where a particular unit is in more than one skill set (e.g. ‘HLTINFCOV001 — Comply with infection prevention and control policies and procedures’), a student can only do the unit once under the fee free arrangements.  Credit will be given where the same unit has been successfully completed under a different skill set.  If an employer or student requests the unit to be repeated in a different context, the unit can be repeated at the cost of the employer or student.
