Education and training experts Courses launches — Certificate 3 guarantee program in Queensland. The program provides funding for a range of Certificate III qualifications.
Courses are providing information about a funding problem which gives financial funding to Queensland students studying for Certificate III and other foundation skills training. This is an important financial boost to students in the state. It can allow them to select a course of their choice without having to struggle with financial concerns as much.
The funding applies to eligible students and school leavers who are looking to get their first Certificate III qualification. The assistance has the potential to be especially advantageous for Year 12 students as they are the ones most likely to be moving from full-time education to employment. This help is what they need to help get their feet on the career ladder for the first time.
Subsidy for one course only
The subsidy that is in place is valid for one course only. This makes the course choice decision an even more important one for students. They need to be sure that the decision they make is the right one because they will not have a second chance to secure the subsidy.
As soon as the enrollment is complete, no further access to the subsidy is permitted. Therefore, students are being advised to take time in order to make the correct choice.
Varied subsidy amounts
Courses have made it clear that subsidies are not all at the same level. The level of subsidy that is available depends on factors such as whether the course is in an area where there is a skills shortage. This is because the promotion of skills in these areas can be beneficial to the economy of the state and the country. Learners who are less advantaged can also benefit from increased levels of subsidy, as can some students who live in more remote parts of the state.
Students are still required to pay for the courses they take but fees are paid in conjunction with the subsidy. This is an important development as it takes away some of the financial pressures that students in Queensland can face. This can potentially open the field of study to more people, from various parts of society. The hope is for this to increase diversity and creativity throughout the workforce, once students have completed their study and commenced working.
24 courses available for subsidy at Courses
There are 24 courses that the subsidy can be applied to. These courses include the Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care (CHC30113), Certificate III in Horticulture (AHC30716) and the Certificate III in Business Administration (BSB30415). Students who are thinking of taking any of the 24 courses can investigate whether they are entitled to Certificate III Subsidised Education.
This education is important in helping more students access career opportunities. It can also potentially be a significant boost to the local economy by helping to build a more knowledgeable workforce.
