From time to time, the Federal and State Governments allocate funding for the provision of vocational training. All government funding is subject to eligiblity criteria and targets specific skills or qualifications and learner groups. Having established a reputation for quality and recognition as a "preferred provider", Blueprint Career Development proudly holds several funding contracts. The following information is a "snap shot".
Certificate 3 Guarantee
For eligible Queenslanders, the Government will provide subsidised training in one certificate level III qualification. This allows greater choice, more contestability and training delivery that better aligns with student needs. To be eligible for the Certificate 3 Guarantee, a participant must not hold or be undertaking a certificate III level or higher qualification unless the qualification was completed while at school. Participants must also:
- be 15 years of age or older
- have finished secondary school or no longer at school
- be an Australian or New Zealand citizen permanently residing in Queensland
Employment status does not matter so a participant can be unemployed and seeking work, or working on a full-time, part-time or casual basis.
Blueprint Career Development can offer the following qualifications under the Certificate 3 Guarantee funding:
- BSB30412 Certificate III in Business Administration
- SIT30713 Certificate III in Hospitality
- BSB20112 Certificate II in Business (for students in exceptional circumstances)
- SIT20213 Certificate II in Hospitality (for students in exceptional circumstances)
User Choice Traineeships
Traineeships are a combination of "earning and learning" and can be offered to new and existing staff in range of qualifications. The Australian government funds employers of eligible trainees up to $4000 per person. In addition, the Queensland government funds the training costs for eligible trainees which may include new staff (employed for less than 3 months full time or 12 months part time) and school based trainees. Blueprint Career Development holds a User Choice contract so is able to access funding for training costs incurred by eligible trainees.
Vet In Schools
Blueprint Career Development has agreements with many schools in Queensland to provide a Certificate II in Hospitality free of charge to students during school time. Achievement is recorded on each participating students' senior certificate. For more information on the VETiS funding, CLICK HERE
