If you are looking to change careers or up skill yourself or your team a nationally recognised qualification is always an investment worth making. The Federal and State Governments also recognise the need for that investment in self enhancement and offer a range of funding options.
We can give you advice and guidance on which funding options fit best with your skills and goals. As an RTO, MyPath delivers courses that are eligible for a range of funding options that essentially fall into three categories:
- Contributes to the cost of approved courses delivered by eligible RTOs to apprentices and trainees in Queensland.
- The subsidy is determined by how critical the occupation is to the economy
- Funding is available to year 12 graduates, for school based apprenticeships, and for existing workers
- Apprentice and trainee rebate for payroll tax
- View some User Choice funded apprenticeships and traineeships
The JobTrainer Fund supports job seekers, school leavers and young people to access the skills and training they need to find work, re-enter the labour market or explore new work opportunities available as Queensland’s economy recovers.
The JobTrainer Fund will operate as a component of Queensland’s existing vocational education and training (VET) investment programs and will provide access to additional training opportunities that complement the training already available for the target student cohort.
