Great skills. Real opportunities.
The Queensland Government reform action plan for further education and training will support Queenslanders to access and complete the skills training they need to get a job.
Fee-free training for Year 12 graduates
From 1 January 2014, Year 12 graduates will be able to access fee-free training in high priority qualifications within the calendar year following the completion of Year 12. The training is available through a range of certificate level III vocational education and training courses, as well as apprenticeships and traineeships.
Certificate 3 Guarantee
The Queensland Government wants more Queenslanders to undertake training in areas where skilled workers are needed.
From 1 July 2013, eligible working age Queenslanders will be entitled to a government subsidy to complete a certificate level III qualification.
