CERTIFICATE 3 GUARANTEE

A core element of the Queensland Government’s Working Queensland jobs plan is ensuring Queenslanders have access to quality training programs that deliver effective skills to meet employment and business demands.

The Certificate 3 Guarantee supports eligible individuals to complete their first post-school certificate III level qualification and increase their skills to move into employment, re-enter the workforce or advance their career. It also supports Queensland’s Year 12 graduates to transition to employment by providing fee-free training in high priority qualifications.

ARE YOU ELIGIBLE?

The program is open to any Queensland resident aged 15 years or over who is no longer at school (with the exception of VET in Schools students) and is an Australian or New Zealand citizen or Australian permanent resident (including humanitarian entrants), or a temporary resident with the necessary visa and work permits on the pathway to permanent residency. Prospective students must not have or be enrolled in a certificate III level or higher qualification, not including qualifications completed at school and foundations skills training.

HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?

It is important you choose the right course for you to take full advantage of the program.

The Queensland Skills Gateway displays the courses available under the Certificate 3 Guarantee and provides information about what they cover, the careers they can lead to, and the training providers approved to deliver them — visit training.qld.gov.au
For information on choosing a training provider, read the training consumer tips on the Department of Education and Training’s website. As a condition of your enrolment, you will be required to complete a student training and employment survey within three months of finishing or discontinuing your training.

WHAT LEVEL OF FUNDING IS AVAILABLE?

The investment priority or importance of the training determines the size of the government subsidy. Training in vocational areas that align with important economic and industry skills needs will receive a higher government subsidy. A higher subsidy will also be paid to support participation by disadvantaged learners. More information on concessional student status is detailed in the Certificate 3 Guarantee Program Policy

DO I NEED TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE COST?

Given the benefits that training provides to individuals, students undertaking certificate III level training and nonconcessional students undertaking lower-level vocational training are required to contribute to the costs of their training through a co-contribution fee. The fee may be paid on your behalf by an employer or another third party, but cannot be paid by the training provider. While the government pays for the vast majority of the course fees, eligible students are required to pay a ‘Student Contribution Fee.
Job seekers registered with a Job Seeker Agency (JSA) should speak to their case manager about the possibility of the JSA providing financial assistance with meeting their ‘student contribution fee’ obligation.

Higher Level Skills Program

A core element of the Queensland Government’s Working Queensland jobs plan is ensuring Queenslanders have access to quality training programs that deliver effective skills to meet employment and business demands.

The Higher Level Skills program aims to assist individuals to gain the higher-level skills required to secure employment or career advancement in a priority industry, or to transition to university to further their studies.

ARE YOU ELIGIBLE?

This program is open to any Queensland resident aged 15 years or over, who is no longer at school and is an Australian or New Zealand citizen, or Australian
permanent resident (including humanitarian entrants), or a temporary resident with the necessary visa and work permits on the pathway to permanent residency. Prospective students must not have or be enrolled in a certificate IV or higher-level qualification, not including qualifications completed at school and foundations skills training.

HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?

You can only access the Higher Level Skills program subsidy once, so it is important that you take the time to carefully consider your training options and compare different providers and their fees before committing to a course of study. The Queensland Skills Gateway displays the courses available under the Higher Level Skills program and provides information about what they cover, the careers they can lead to and the training providers approved to deliver them — visit www.training.qld.gov.au/skillsgateway.
For some subsidised courses under the program, the industry and training package requires you to be an existing worker in the industry to be eligible to enrol. These restrictions are detailed in the Queensland Training Subsidies List.
For helpful information on choosing a training provider, read the training consumer tips on the Department of Education and Training’s website. As a condition of your enrolment, you will be required to complete a student training and employment survey within three months of finishing or discontinuing your training.

WHAT LEVEL OF SUBSIDY IS AVAILABLE?

The investment priority or importance of the training determines the size of the government subsidy. Training in vocational areas that align with critical industry skills needs and government priorities will receive a higher government subsidy. A higher subsidy will also be paid to support participation by disadvantaged learners (concessional students). More information on concessional student status is detailed in the Higher Level Skills Program Policy at www.training.qld.gov.au.

DO I NEED TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE COST?

Given the increased benefits that you can gain from higher-level training, you are required to contribute to the cost of your training through a co-contribution fee, payable to the training provider. The fee amount varies depending upon the course you undertake and the training provider you choose.
The fee may be paid on your behalf by an employer or another third party but cannot be paid by the training provider.

Fee-free training for Year 12 graduates

To support Queensland’s Year 12 graduates to successfully transition to employment, the government is offering fee-free training in high priority qualifications identified by the Queensland Government and industry groups.

The training is available through a range of certificate III level vocational education and training (VET) courses, as well as apprenticeships and traineeships.

ARE YOU ELIGIBLE?

To be eligible to access fee-free training, individuals must:
• have completed Year 12 in Queensland and hold a Senior Statement issued by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority or equivalent certification
• enrol and start an apprenticeship, traineeship or training, with an approved training provider in a high priority qualification by the end of the calendar year following completion of Year 12
• permanently reside in Queensland.

HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?

It is important to carefully consider your training options before committing to a training course as this may exhaust your entitlement to further Queensland Government subsidised training.
For information on choosing a training provider, read the training consumer tips on the Department of Education and Training’s website.  As a condition of your enrolment, you will be required to complete a student training and employment survey within three months of finishing or discontinuing your training.

WHAT LEVEL OF SUBSIDY IS AVAILABLE?

Fee-free training only applies to apprenticeships and traineeships or certificate III level qualifications identified as high priority by the Queensland Government. High priority qualifications will develop the skills most needed by employers and the Queensland economy, and are based on skill demand, advice from industry, and whether the qualification will lead to employment.
The list of high priority qualifications is available at www.training.qld.gov.au/year12feefree .  The program is funding under the Queensland Government’s Certificate 3 Guarantee program or User Choice program, which funds training and assessment services for apprenticeships and traineeships.

DO I NEED TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE COST?

The Queensland Government will cover the full cost of training in a high priority qualification delivered under the Year 12 fee-free training initiative. This means eligible participants will not be required to contribute to the cost of their training.
