What is Higher Skills?

The principle aim of the Higher Level Skills program is to help individuals gain the higher level skills required to secure employment or career advancement in a priority industry.

The Higher Level Skills program will provide employers and industry with the capacity to address current workforce development needs.

For further information, please refer to the following Fact Sheet http://www.training.qld.gov.au/resources/training-organisations/pdf/hls-factsheet-student.pdf

Priority Qualifications

High-priority qualifications are those qualifications which develop the skills most needed by the economy.

They are determined based on information about skill shortages, advice from industry, and the importance of the qualification in gaining an employment outcome.

What is the cost?

Given the increased benefits that you can gain from higher-level training, you are required to contribute to the cost of your training through a student co-contribution fee, payable to the training provider.

The amount of fees varies depending upon the course you undertake and the training provider you choose.

The fee may be paid on your behalf by an employer or a third party but cannot be paid by the training provider.

Aspire to Succeed Learner Co-Contribution Fees

Fees for the course are invoiced upon enrolment for all units enrolled. Invoices have a 14 day payment term.

Should you withdraw from the course, or not commence units, you will be refunded for any units paid, which you did not commence training in.

Learners have the opportunity to pay the course fees off over the duration of the course. At no time do we wish to disadvantage a learner from completing their studies and therefore, payment plans are available.

Important Information

Access to the program

As you can only access the Higher Skills subsidy once, it is important you choose the right course for you to take full advantage of this opportunity.

From 1 July 2014, the Queensland Skills Gateway will display the courses available under the Higher Skills program and will also provide information about what they cover, the careers they can lead to, and the training providers approved to deliver them.

Learner Surveys

Within 3 months of completion or withdrawal from the course it is a requirement for each learner to complete and submit a ‘Training and Employment Survey’.

The results of these surveys are provided to the QLD Training Department on a quarterly basis.

You will be provided with the form either face to face or through the post, dependent on the circumstance at the time.
