There are many forms of Queensland Government Subsidies and
industry funding for individuals and companies undertaking
further education and upskilling and their teams.

Certificate 3 Guarantee

A key initiative of the Queensland Government is the Certificate 3 Guarantee. This initiative provides a government subsidy to support eligible individuals to complete their first post-school certificate III level qualification.

The Queensland Government subsidises the training that is provided by the RTO and there is a co-contribution fee from the student for enrolment and training.

There is only one Certificate 3 Guarantee Certificate III subsidy entitlement. Therefore it’s important that you consider your training options to ensure they align with your chosen career pathway.
