Overview

The Certificate 3 Guarantee provides eligible individuals with access to a subsidised training place in an Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) certificate III level qualification with a pre-approved registered training organisation (RTO) of their choice — otherwise known as a pre-qualified supplier (PQS).

The government’s aim is to assist working-age Queenslanders without a post-school certificate III or higher-level qualification to complete a nationally recognised certificate III qualification that leads to:

  • a job outcome for individuals trying to enter the labour market or their desired industry/career; or
  • advancement in the workplace or career progression for individuals already employed in their preferred industry.

Eligibility

To be eligible to enrol in the Certificate 3 Guarantee, prospective students must:

  • be aged 15 years or older,
  • no longer at school(with the exception of school students in Years 10, 11 and 12 undertaking a VET in School (VETiS) program

  • not hold, and not be enrolled in, a certificate III or higher-level qualification, not including qualifications completed at school and foundation skills training.

Please note: Students can access the Certificate 3 Guarantee subsidy only once, so it’s important that you take the time to choose your course carefully to maximise your career or further training opportunities.

User Choice Program

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.

How does the program work?

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.

The program works in conjunction with the Commonwealth Australian Apprenticeships System, under which apprentices and trainees (also known in some jurisdictions as “Australian Apprentices”) enter into legally binding training contracts with their employers and receive structured training to achieve a nationally recognised qualification.

Employers taking on an Apprentice or Trainee

For employers, Australian Apprentices can bring new and valuable resources and skills into a business. Traineeships allow you to develop qualified loyal staff that are familiar with your company, your work environment, your standards, your equipment and your customers. There are plenty of benefits to employers that include the following:

  • Qualified employees trained your way for your business
