What is the Higher Education Program?

Student Information

The Higher Education Program is a key initiative under the Queensland Government’s five year training reform action plan. The program provides a Government subsidy to financially support eligible students to access one subsidised training place in a selected Certificate IV level and above qualifications, or priority skill sets.

WHAT ARE YOUR ENTITLEMENTS?

Under the Higher Education program, eligible individuals are only entitled to one Queensland

Government subsidised training place in a funded Certificate IV or Diploma qualification.

 

TRAINING SUBSIDY

The investment priority or importance of the training determines the size of the government subsidy. Training in vocational areas that align with critical industry skill needs and government priorities will receive a high government subsidy.

A higher subsidy will also be paid to support participation by disadvantaged learners (concessional students).

CHECK YOUR ELIGIBILITY

To be eligible for the Higher Education funding you must be:

  • Aged 15 years or older, and no longer at school
  • Permanently reside in Queensland
  • 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
  • Do not hold, and not be enrolled in, a certificate IV or higher-level qualification, not including qualifications completed at school and foundation skills training.
