Do you need childcare to help you undertake training?
The Flexible Family Support Grant provides funding to enable learners to participate in learning where the cost of childcare is a barrier to participation.
Learners who are enrolled in Government subsidised pre-accredited or accredited training at a Learn Local organisation should ask staff for more information about the program.
The program is available to assist parents, carers or guardians of a child or children aged between 0–6 years and who are not yet enrolled at school and need occasional child care during class time.
If you are receiving the Commonwealth funded Child Care Benefit then you may be able to receive
top-up funding and if you are ineligible then funding can be used to help you pay your out of pocket costs.

Government Subsidised Training - Non-eligible Full Fee Paying Course and Fee Information
Fees are calculated for full-fee paying enrolment by adding the cost of each unit as listed in your information booklet and KLC Term Brochure.
Certificates and Statement of Attainment are not available until all fees are paid in full
These concessions also apply to the dependant spouse or dependent child of the card holder. These concessions do not apply if the student’s tuition contribution is being met by a Commonwealth Government Agency or as part of a Commonwealth program or initiative. The Concession Tuition Contribution applies to a calendar year; however the Card must be reproduced for new course enrolments within the calendar year.
Indigenous Completions Initiative
The concession tuition contribution is also available to Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students as per Skill Victoria’s Indigenous Completions Initiative, for a government-supported place in any of Course Categories.
In the case of Job Seekers claiming a concession, the Keysborough Learning Centre, with prior agreement of the referring agency, will invoice the referring agency (JSA) for the portion of the tuition fee not covered by a Government Funded concession place (HSEG) for the Job Seeker. That will be 80% of the regular eligible student fee.
Course Fees and Concession Tuition Contribution
To calculate Enrolment Fees eligible for concession:
- Refer to the Contribution Amount relevant to your course category
- Add Student Amenities charge, Manuals and Materials & Equipment Fees
- To ensure access and affordable training and education is available to the whole community we keep fees as low as possible.
Students who show a current Commonwealth Health Care Card, Pensioner Concession Card or a Veteran’s Gold Card at the time of enrolment pay the Concession Tuition Contribution for the course enrolment.
