Fee Free Training For Year 12 Graduates
Year 12 graduates can access fee-free training in high priority areas if they start training with an approved training provider within a year of leaving school. The fee-free training will apply to high priority qualifications available under the Queensland Government’s Certificate 3 Guarantee program or User Choice program, which funds workplace-based apprenticeship and traineeship training. High priority qualifications are qualifications which provide training in the skills most needed by employers and industry.
Certificate 3 Guarantee Program
The Certificate 3 Guarantee supports eligible individuals to complete their first post-school certificate III 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.
User Choice Program
The User Choice 2010-2015 program provides a public funding contribution towards the cost of training and assessment for eligible Queensland apprentices and trainees. The program provides the flexibility for apprentices, trainees and their employers to select a preferred registered training organisation (RTO) from a list of pre-qualified suppliers (PQS) for the delivery of accredited training to meet their specific needs.
Higher Level Skills Program
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.
