Queensland Skills Assure Funding

We are approved to deliver training in Queensland as a funded Skills Assure Supplier (SAS). Studying one of the courses in our wide range with Horizon2 under this funding provides you with an opportunity to complete a full qualification for a much more affordable fee.

We are able to train qualifications under the following funded training programs:

Higher Level Skills (HLS)

The Higher Level Skills program provides eligible students access to subsidised training for Certificate IV level or above qualifications and skillsets.
The aim is for individuals to be able to gain the higher-level skills required to secure employment and career advancement.

To be eligible for the Higher Level Skills program, individuals must: 

  • be aged 15 years or over;
  • be no longer at school;
  • permanently reside in Queensland;
  • be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident (includes humanitarian entrant), temporary resident with the necessary visa and work permits on the pathway to permanent residency, or a New Zealand citizen;
  • not hold a certificate IV or higher-level qualification, not including qualifications completed at school and foundation skills training; and
  • not be enrolled in another qualification, not including foundation skills training. 

Certificate 3 Guarantee

The Certificate 3 Guarantee supports eligible students to complete their first post-school certificate III qualification.
It is targeted at certificate III qualifications because they are considered an entry-level qualification most often needed to gain employment.

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

  • be aged 15 years or older;
  • be no longer at school (with the exception of school students in Years 10, 11 and 12 undertaking a VET in School (VETiS) program — see the VETiS fact sheet for more information);
  • permanently reside in Queensland;
  • be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident (includes humanitarian entrant), temporary resident with the necessary visa and work permits on the pathway to permanent residency, or a New Zealand citizen (for more information see Visa eligibility under VET investment programs);
  • not hold, or not be enrolled in, a certificate III or higher-level qualification, not including qualifications completed at school and foundation skills training.

User Choice

The User Choice program recognises that employment-based training aligned to skills shortages is a critical priority for the Queensland Government. It aims to provide funding aligned to the skills needs of the industry.

Eligible students will complete a qualification as a traineeship or apprenticeship in conjunction with the Australian Apprenticeships System in which apprentices and trainees enter into a training contract with their employer and receive structured training to achieve their qualification.
