AgSkilled supported training is available to those with a genuine interest in the NSW Cotton or Grain industries. This includes producers, farm staff, contractors, jobseekers and some industry professionals.  

AgSkilled requires participants be:

  • 15 years old or over

  • no longer at school

  • living or working in NSW

  • an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, humanitarian visa holder or New Zealand citizen

  • have a genuine interest* in the NSW Cotton or Grains industry

    *(those seeking to complete AgSkilled training to gain employment in either industry must provide the support of a future employer). Training for ‘general interest’ will not be supported.

Your eligibility is not affected if you have completed a vocational education and training (VET) course, including a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship, as part of your high school education.
