About Higher Level Skills (QLD)

The Higher Level Skills Program enables eligible students living in Queensland to access subsidised training. The Queensland Government provides funding for Certificate IV or higher level qualifications within priori-ty skill sets.

More About the Higher Level Skills Program

In Queensland the Higher Level Skills Program focuses on Certificate IV, Diploma and Advanced Diploma level qualifications based on priority skill sets critical to productivity. Qualifications and skill sets which attract subsidies are determined by national skills shortages and the priorities of the Queensland Government.

The aim of the Higher Level Skills Program is to assist individuals gain higher level skills to secure employment or career advancement in priority industries, or transition to university to further their studies.

Tiered Subsidies

The amount of government funding varies according to the qualification. Higher subsidies are allocated to industries with skill shortages or qualifications that develop important economic and industry skills.

Disadvantaged learners (concessional students), and those undertaking training in some regional and remote locations like Cape York and the Torres Strait will also have a higher subsidy allocated to their training.

Fees Payable by Students

Students who enrol in a qualification under the Higher Level Skills Program are required to contribute to the costs of their training through a co-contribution fee. The fee depends on the course selected as well as the training provider.
