Can I get Government funding for this course?

NO, NT Government funding programs are available to other organisations based on 'legacy agreements'.  NATA has met with Government representatives to request more fair-handed treatment, and been told there was nothing Government could do to make this situation fair for NATA and its students.  You have the right to ask your local member why their BUY NT policy does not apply in this situation, they are spending your taxes after all.
