Let’s get to know each other and plan out your learning journey!
Your Personal Details
Provide us with your residential details.
We sometimes do things the old fashion way and use the post. Tell us where you want your mail sent.
Accidents happen. Provide us with an emergency contact, so we can get in touch with someone.

It takes a special person to work with Older People. We want to make sure that you are studying the right qualification to get you into the career you want! If we feel that Aged Care may not be the right career choice for you, we will assist you to explore other study and career options.
We will ask you the following questions and record your responses below.
If you are eligible for a Government Funded position as part of the Victoria Training Guarantee:
The Victorian Training Guarantee makes vocational training more accessible to people who do not hold a post-school qualification, or who want to gain a higher-level qualification than they already hold.
There are now an unlimited number of government-subsidised training places available in Victoria to people who meet the eligibility criteria.
However, we need to let you in on a few secrets about the Victorian Training Guarantee and how it could affect your future funding entitlements.
You need to be ‘upskilling’, you can’t ‘downskill!’
It kind of makes sense, but we need to spell it out. To be eligible for a Government Funded position you need to be ‘upskilling.’ For instance, if you have completed a Certificate III, you will only be eligible for a Government Funded position at a Certificate IV or higher level.
In this example, you would not be eligible to complete a Certificate I, Certificate II or Certificate III qualification, as these qualifications are either at or below the level of your current highest-level qualification. The only exception is if the qualification is on the Foundation Skills list, which we give you the low down on in the section ‘You can only commence two qualifications in the one-year.’
You can only commence two qualifications at the one level and receive a Government Funded position
Under the Victorian Training Guarantee, if you commence a qualification at a level where you are eligible to receive a Government Funded position, have never commenced a qualification at that level and do not complete the qualification at the level, you can only start one more qualification at that level within your lifetime and receive a Government Funded position.
For example, Richard had never commenced a Certificate III qualification. So one day, Richard enrolled in Certificate III in Aged Care. Once he commenced, he could only receive a future Government Funded position in one more Certificate III qualification as part of the Victorian Training Guarantee.
Once you have commenced one qualification at a particular level, you can only start one more qualification at that level and receive a Government Funded position.
If you have previously commenced a qualification at a level that you are eligible to receive a Government Funded position, and did not complete the qualification at that level or are still studying that qualification, you can only start one more qualification at that level within your lifetime.
For example, in Richard’s example, whilst studying Certificate III in Aged Care, he took advantage of the second Government Funded position that was available to him at a Certificate III level and commenced studying certificate III in Home and Community Care.
Don't leave enrolment in your second qualification at a particular level until you have finished your first qualification at that level - it will affect your future entitlements through the Victorian Training Guarantee.
If you commenced a qualification at a level you are eligible to receive a Government Funded position, and have never commenced a qualification at this level, but have study aspirations to study to qualifications at that level, you need to enrol in the second qualification prior to completing the first qualification.
For example, Jane wanted to study Certificate III in Aged Care, followed by Certificate III in Disability Services. When she had two weeks of study left in her Certificate III in Aged Care qualification, she enrolled in Certificate III in Disability, and was still eligible to receive a Government Funded position. Had she waited until she completed Certificate III in Aged Care she would have had to:
- Enrol in Certificate III in Disability Services as a Fee for Service Personal Care Master OR
- Enrol in a Certificate IV qualification, that may not have matched her career goals, in order to receive a Government Funded position
You can only commence two qualifications in the one-year.
Once you have started two qualifications in a calendar year, regardless of if you are still studying, successfully completed them or withdrew from them, you can only start two qualifications in the one calendar year. This applies to qualifications at the same level or differing levels.
For example, in 2015 Jane commenced both Certificate III in Aged Care and Certificate III in Disability Services. As she had commenced two courses in the one calendar year, she could not commence a third. She would also not be eligible to receive any future Government Funded positions to commence another Certificate III qualification.
The Government does have some special course listed on what it calls the Foundation Skills list. These are courses that develop specific skills people need prior to entering training. These courses are exempt from the up skilling rule (for instance someone who holds a Certificate IV, may need retraining due to a job redundancy, so they can complete a Foundation Skills course), but are not exempt from the two qualifications in the one-year rule.
You can only commence two qualifications in the one year, even if they are at different qualification levels.
We get this point may be telling you to suck eggs, but we just want to make sure you are all over it! Like in the above example, Russell commenced a Certificate III in Aged Care and a Certificate IV in Aged Care in the 2015 calendar year. As both qualifications were started in the 2015 calendar year, he could not start any further qualifications.
You can only have two on the go at any one time.
If you have ever had two girlfriends or boyfriends on the go at once, you will know that whilst it is fun, it can get tricky. You have to keep track of who you said what too! Like a complex love life requires dedication and commitment, so does studying two qualifications simultaneously. This is why the Victorian Training Guarantee will only ever allow you to have two qualifications on the go at one time. This applies even if you qualifications carry over into a new year, and you are eligible to start two more qualifications in the following calendar year.
For example, in relation to Russell, he started his Certificate III in Aged Care and a Certificate IV in Aged Care qualifications and they continued into 2016. In fact, they were not scheduled to finish until July 2016. So even though Russell wanted to start a new qualification, he had to wait to finish at least one of the Aged Care related qualifications.
Do I need to repay the funds to the Victorian Government that are provided to Seed Education from the Victorian Training Guarantee?

VICTORIAN TRAINING GUARANTEE 2015 EVIDENCE OF STUDENT ELIGIBILITY AND STUDENT DECLARATION
I confirm that in relation to:
To determine your eligibility for a government-subsidised training place, we need you to tell us about your education history.
We need you to confirm that what you have told us is accurate.
Declare the following to be true and accurate statements:
Our Turn - RTO declaration
To be completed by all Personal Care Masters aged up to 24 years:
Since 2009 in schools and since 2011 for vocational education and training (VET) organisations and Adult Community Education providers, a Victorian Student Number (VSN) has been allocated upon enrolment to each individual student aged up to 24 years.
Students should report their VSN on all subsequent enrolments at a Victorian school or training organisation. In particular, all students who are currently enrolled in either a VET provider or a Victorian school (including those already participating in a VET in schools program) should obtain their VSN from their current education or training organisation and report their VSN on this enrolment form.
Students who are enrolling for the first time since the VSN was introduced will get a new VSN.
What is the Unique Student Identifier?
A Unique Student Identifier (USI) is a reference number made up of numbers and letters that gives students access to their USI account. A USI will allow an individual's USI account to be linked to the National Vocational Education and Training (VET) Data Collection allowing an individual to see all of their training results from all providers including all completed training units and qualifications.
The USI will make it easier for students to find and collate their VET achievements into a single authenticated transcript. It will also ensure that students' VET records are not lost.
The USI will be is available online and at no cost to the student. This USI will stay with the student for life and be recorded with any nationally recognised VET course that is completed from when the USI comes into effect on 1 January 2015.
A student needs a USI when enrolling or re-enrolling in nationally recognised training from 1 January 2015. This includes if the student is enrolling for the first time, for example, if they are studying at TAFE or with a private training organisation, completing an apprenticeship or skill set, certificate or diploma course. It also applies to students continuing or completing (re-enrolling) training, including nationally recognised training undertaken in secondary school.
These sections outline a bit of information you need to know prior to enrolling. If you have any questions, make sure you ask!
