If you have been contemplating study but have never been quite certain whether it was for you, vocational education may be your perfect solution and we can guide you through it.
Vocational education training courses and qualifications have been developed to prepare students with specific skills required in the workplace, in the ‘real world’. These courses are designed to upskill current employees within their industry, join the workforce for the first time within an industry of choice or move into a new career or industry that requires theoretical and possibly practical training.
There are many benefits to undertaking a VET qualification, one of the main ones being the heavy practical focus of their content, a lot of what you study and are required to undertake involves evidence based projects and questions that link directly to what you are currently doing within your industry or that have a direct relevance to tasks and skills that will be required for your future industry! Useful right?
If you have made the first step of deciding to undertake a course, congratulations, now your next question might be around cost? The great news about undertaking Vocational education and training is that there is plenty of government funding available to those eligible, making your education affordable and readily accessible to you.
The Certificate 3 Guarantee supports the Queensland Government’s ‘Working Queensland Jobs’ plan and provides a government subsidy to support eligible individuals to complete their very first post-school Certificate III qualification. This program also links in to support Year 12 graduates’ transition into employment through fee free training in qualifications that are considered high priority.
