    • community education providers
    • government-funded private registered training organisations
    • schools funded through government allocations for VET
    • all other Commonwealth and state recurrent and specific-purpose funded VET, regardless of the location of the training organisation.

    • all delivery at overseas campuses other than overseas Australia territories
    • all fee-for-service delivery by private training organisations
