Stuff you should know: A Guide to Government Services for Young People

The Albanese Government is ensuring young people have more opportunities to shape Australia’s future.

Our Fee-Free TAFE initiative is continuing to exceed targets, removing financial barriers so more Australians can learn new skills in areas where the economy needs them most.

We’re funding practical placements for students studying teaching, nursing, midwifery and social work to ease the burden of placement poverty.

And we’ve overhauled the way HECS is calculated, wiping $3 billion off student debt for 3 million Australians.

Whether you’re planning to study at university, attend TAFE or take up an apprenticeship, I want you to be informed about the services available to you.

In this kit you’ll find useful information about accessing HECS, fee-free TAFE and other study loans.

There’s tips for writing a CV and cover letter, details on joining your union, and an explainer on how to access government services through the MyGov app. 

Remember, if you face any difficulties accessing Federal Government services, my office is always available to help.
