Building Future Education is a Skills Assured Supplier approved for the delivery of training and assessment services subsidised by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training under the Skills Assure funding program.

Below is the list of programs that are available under our approval.  For more information on these funding options click on the name of the funding.

The Certificate 3 Guarantee supports eligible individuals to complete their first post-school certificate III qualification. It also supports school students to access training and Queensland’s Year 12 graduates to transition to employment by providing free training in high priority qualifications.

The Higher Level Skills program provides a government subsidy in selected certificate IV or above qualifications and priority skill sets to help individuals gain the higher level skills required to secure employment or career advancement in a priority industry.

The User Choice program provides public funding for the delivery of accredited, entry level training to apprentices and trainees.

Free apprenticeships for under 25s offer fully subsidised training apprenticeship and traineeship qualifications in the Early Childhood Sector. The Free apprenticeships for under 25s program will cover the cost of training for Queensland apprentices or trainees who commenced or are undertaking 1 of the high priority apprenticeship or traineeship qualifications from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2024.

Fees for self funded students. The Fee for service applies when a student is not eligible for any subsidies or when there are no subsidies available.

International Students

In some cases, a registered training organisation (RTO) may enrol students who are temporarily visiting or reside in Australia on certain visas, other than study visas. However, some visas include restrictions on training. Most visas and sub-class visas clearly outline what your study rights are in Australia. It is the responsibility of the individual to check their study and work rights according to their individual visa*. Further information is also available from the Department of Home Affairs.

*Any course undertaken by a student visa holder must be registered on CRICOS and training must be provided by a CRICOS registered provider (The Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students). Building Futures Education is not a registered CRICOS provider and as such we are unable to accept applications from individuals wishing to study on a student visa.

are allotted a two-year enrolment window and must adhere to assessment submission deadlines established by the RTO:

  • Once the learner has attended all tutorials and corresponding workshops (if applicable) for a unit the learner will be required to submit the assessment within a 6 month time frame
  • Failure to submit assessments by the due date will result in a non-progression warning.
  • If a learner’s course is financed in whole or in part by their employer, the employer will be informed of any non-progression.
  • If a learner has been issued a non-progression notice for two units, they are ineligible to attend further classes until they have submitted and received competency marks for at least one of the outstanding units.
  • If the non-progression is not rectified within the time frame set out in the notice, the learner will meet with the College Manager, this may result in the learner’s course being cancelled.
  • Should a learner cannot finish their course within the allocated two-year period, automatic cancellation will occur unless they fill out an extension form, available on the website. Learners can apply for a maximum of two extensions for their course. These will be available for a three-month time frame per extension, for a fee of $300 per application.
  • If the course remains incomplete after the extension period, it will be cancelled, and the learner must re-enrol, incurring additional fees.

Note: Failure to clear outstanding fees or adhere to payment plans may result in the suspension or cancellation of the learner’s course, excluding trainees and apprentices under the User Choice Funding arrangements.
