WorkReady – eligibility requirements

Certificate 3 Guarantee (QLD)

The principal aim of the Certificate 3 Guarantee is to assist working-age Queenslanders without a certificate III or higher level qualification to complete a nationally recognised certificate III level qualification that leads to:

  • a job outcome for individuals trying to enter the labour market or their desired industry/career
  • advancement in the workplace or career progression for individuals already employed in their preferred industry.

*Certificate III eligibility requirements

A certificate III level qualification is shown to have a significant impact on a person’s employment and earnings. It is also the level of qualification usually required to get a job in industries like aged care, child care, hospitality and small business.
Once a certificate III level qualification has been completed participants will no longer be eligible for a subsidised training place under the Certificate 3 Guarantee program.
For more information see the Queensland Government Certificate 3 Guarantee student factsheet
