JobTrainer will fund an estimated 320,000 additional training places that can help you learn skills for jobs in demand. The Australian Government is partnering with participating state and territory governments to establish the $1 billion JobTrainer Fund.

JobTrainer is available to eligible Queenslanders in a wide range of industries identified as having a genuine skills need and employment growth including health, aged and disability care, manufacturing, logistics, primary industries and tourism.

To be eligible to enrol in a training place funded under JobTrainer, prospective students must:

  • permanently reside in Queensland, and
  • be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident (includes humanitarian entrant), temporary resident with the necessary visa and work permits on the pathway to permanent residency, or a New Zealand citizen, and
  • have finished school or no longer be at school (including home schooled), and
  • not already be enrolled in training (includes VET and higher education courses), and
  • not have previously completed a qualification funded under the JobTrainer Fund, and
  • either be a job seeker or a school leaver or young person.

In addition to the above eligibility requirements, specific restrictions and/or exemptions may apply to participate in certain subsidised qualifications or short courses, which will be based on industry advice or requirements under the relevant national training package and will be detailed in the JobTrainer priority course list.

All students seeking to enrol under JobTrainer funding are required to contact ACE Community Colleges Burleigh on 07 5520 3026 to discuss your eligibility and training preferences.


This Program provides training to people who are under-utilised or under-employed in the labour market, as well as building the skills for young people, Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people, people with a disability, mature age job seekers and people from culturally diverse and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Through our network of partners we have access to funding for a wide range of courses.


The Certificate 3 Guarantee is a key initiative under the Queensland Government’s five-year training reform action plan, Working Queensland. The Program supports eligible individuals to complete their first post-school Certificate III level qualification and increase their skills to move into employment, re-enter the workforce or advance their career. It also supports Queensland’s Year 12 graduates to transition to employment by providing fee-free training in high-priority qualifications.

All students enrolling in these courses are required to read the Certificate 3 Guarantee STUDENT FACT SHEET.


The Higher Level Skills program is a key initiative under the Queensland Government’s five-year training reform action plan, Working Queensland. The aim is to assist individuals to gain the higher-level skills required to secure employment or career advancement in a priority industry, or to transition to university. The Program provides individuals with access to one subsidised training place in a selected Certificate IV level and above qualification or priority skill set.

All students enrolling in these courses are required to read the Higher Level Skills STUDENT FACT SHEET.


Non accredited training is full fee only.
