QAT is a pre-qualified supplier approved by the Queensland Government to deliver publicly funded training and assessment. Eligible students can access a range of government funding to help subsidise your training.

QLD Subsidised Training

What Higher Level Skills (HLS)?

The Higher Level Skills program provides a government subsidy to support eligible individuals to access subsidised training in selected certificate IV or above qualifications, and priority skill sets.

The aim is to assist individuals to gain the higher level skills required to secure employment or career advancement in priority industries or to transition to university to continue their studies. Employers may also be able to access training to address workforce development needs.

Subsidies are provided for a select number of certificate IV, diploma and advanced diploma qualifications, and priority skill sets critical to productivity within the workplace. The program provides the opportunity for employers to engage employees in priority training to address current workforce development needs.

HLS program is open for:
  • any Queensland resident aged 15 years or over, who is no longer at school and is an Australian or New Zealand citizen
  • an Australian permanent resident (including humanitarian entrants)
  • a temporary resident with the necessary visa and work permits on the pathway to permanent residency.

Prospective students must not have or be enrolled in a certificate IV or higher-level qualification, not including qualifications completed at school and foundations skills training.
