What is the Higher Level Skills Program?

The Higher Level Skills program provides a government subsidy to support eligible individuals to access subsidised training in selected certificate IV and above qualifications, or priority skill sets.


What you can study

Subsidies are provided for a select number of certificate IV, diploma and advanced diploma qualifications, and priority skill sets critical to productivity within the workplace.

The Higher Level Skills subsidy for a course is paid to the training provider to reduce the cost of the course to the student. Only quality providers that pass the Department of Education, Training and Employment’s high standards are approved to deliver  training under this program. Site Institute is one of the select registered training organisations approved under the Higher Level Skills Program.

Eligible participants can undertake subsidised training with Site Institute in the following qualifications:
