Higher Level Skills Subsidy (HLS)

The Higher Level Skills (HLS) program provides a government subsidy to support eligible students to access subsidised training in priority skill sets and selected certificate IV or higher qualifications.

If your course is eligible, the Queensland Government will pay the subsidy directly to AIPT. The level of the government subsidy varies depending on the demand for skilled workers in each industry. You will be required to contribute to the costs of your training through a co-contribution fee, the details of which can be found below.

User Choice

The User Choice 2017-20 program provides a public funding contribution towards the cost of training and assessment for eligible Queensland apprentices and trainees. The program aims to provide funding aligned to the skills needs of industry and respond to changing government priorities.

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.

Usually students are required to pay a co-contribution fee. In some cases though, an RTO may provide either a partial or full exemption for a student in respect to the co-contribution fee. School-based apprentices and trainees are not required to pay a co-contribution fee while they are still at school, but may be required to pay fees once their training contract has been converted to full time or part time post school.

User Choice Eligibility

To be eligible for the HLS subsidised training, you must meet the following criteria:
  • Have entered into a training contract for a qualification that is funded by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT)
  • Be registered in DESBT's registration system DELTA
  • The contract commencement date or recommencement date must be on or after 1 July 2010
  • The training provider selected to deliver the training must hold a pre-qualified supplier (PQS) status for the nominated qualification.

Other restrictions may apply to some programs, so please read the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training website for more information.

  • Have completed Year 12 in Queensland and hold a Senior Statement issued by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority or equivalent certification
