The NSW Office for Veterans Affairs (OVA) has partnered with TAFE NSW to support veterans who have transitioned out of the ADF in the past 5 years and require further education and training to pursue a civilian career.
TAFE offers the Ranks to Recognition program, which gives veterans access to free career counselling and recognition of prior learning. They also offer 1,400 Smart and Skilled courses ranging from a Cert I through to an Advanced Diploma. OVA's Veterans Education Scholarship Program covers course fees for eligible veterans. All DVA Gold and White Card holders who have an accepted service related condition, which may impact their ability to study may be eligible for a fee exemption.
Applications are open.
