TRADE SKILLS ASSESSMENT AND GAP TRAINING PROGRAM
Work Skills will map all your experiences, skills obtained, and years spent doing the job against the qualification requirements so you can complete your qualification.
Your qualification may be subsidised through the Queensland Government Trade Skills Assessment and Gap Training Program.
This is a nationally-accredited qualification achieved predominantly through a Recognition of Prior Learning, and Work Skills will support you throughout this process.
You don't need a job to enrol; the Trade Skills Assessment uses skills and knowledge you have acquired from previous jobs.
WHAT IS THE PROGRAM?
The Trade Skills Assessment and Gap Training program is a Government funded program designed to offer eligible Queenslanders that have substantial trade and industry experience, the opportunity to complete a priority trade qualification. The program targets most, but not all, trades that have been declared as a restricted calling in Queensland. The Trade Skills Assessment and Gap Training program is eligible for Government funding opportunities however where funding doesn’t cover the full cost of the program, gap training is set at $1.60 per nominal hour for each unit of competency which is to be calculated at the commencement of course.
