Programs – Making a booking


In line with the Department of Education and Training (DET) equitable access policy, GTAC allocates programs equally across metropolitan and rural schools. Rural government school students are fully subsidised for program costs by the DET and are eligible for assistance with travel costs. Students from schools classified as metropolitan disadvantaged also qualify for fully subsidised program costs by DET. All other schools will incur a small cost per student. Due to continually increasing popularity, demand for school group programs usually exceeds the number of places available, so your request may be placed on a waitlist.

Contact GTAC to find out your current school DET classification to see if your school is eligible for subsidies.  Classifications are reviewed by the Department of Education every year and are subject to change.
