Funding Options for Certificate III Qualifications in Queensland

In Queensland, Certificate III qualifications are not typically funded under the Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) program.

Students who wish to pursue a Certificate III qualification have other funding options available, such as the User Choice program for school-based apprenticeships and traineeships (SATs). This topic explores the funding opportunities for Certificate III qualifications in Queensland and the benefits of undertaking a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship.

While Certificate III qualifications are not VETiS funded, students in Queensland have access to the User Choice program, which supports school-based apprenticeships and traineeships. By participating in school-based apprenticeships or traineeships, students can gain practical experience, industry skills, and a head start in their careers, all while being funded for their vocational education and training. These opportunities open doors for students to succeed in their chosen professions and become valuable contributors to the workforce and the community.
