What is the Certificate 3 Guarantee Program?
The Certificate 3 Guarantee program provides subsidies to assist eligible Queenslanders who do not have a post-school qualification higher than a Certificate II, to obtain a Certificate III level qualification.
A Certificate III is the first level of post-school qualification shown to have a significant impact on a person’s employment and earnings. It is also the level of qualification usually required to secure a job in industries such as aged care, childcare, hospitality and business.
Under the Certificate 3 Guarantee program, you are only entitled to one Queensland Government subsidised training place in a funded Certificate III qualification.
Under the Certificate 3 Guarantee, the Queensland Government will subsidise training costs for students across a range of courses at the Certificate III qualification level. The Queensland Government will, on your behalf, directly pay the training provider the level of subsidy related to the course you enrol in. The amount the subsidy, depends on its priority level, which is based on the demand for skilled workers in the areas of study.
You must meet the remaining costs associated with the course. students should expect to contribute to the cost of their training through a student contribution fee. Some students, including those with a health care or pensioner concession card as well as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, will receive a higher subsidy.
