Before you can start delivering subsidised training, there are a few actions you need to take, and things you need to know.
Apply for Funded Activities Agreement (FAA)
To deliver government subsidised activities, you need to apply and be approved for funding through this Agreement.
Once you have your FAA, you can apply for subsidies across accredited training, apprenticeships and traineeships and non-accredited activities.
Review Subsidised Training List (STL)
Take a look at this list to see all subsidised courses and qualifications (you can deliver any that are on your ASQA scope).
This list is periodically updated and you can review notes on each release, including any courses that may have been removed, replacement courses, and managed courses.
Upfront Assessment of Need
Before students can commence training you must complete an Upfront Assessment of Need or UAN to ensure training candidates get the right support they need to successfully complete their training.
If your student is facing significant personal or learning challenges, and is at risk of withdrawing from training, you will need to engage Learner Support Services (LSS) which are fully funded for eligible students.
There is a range of support resources to help you with the UAN process in the Provider's Toolkit.
A Participant Agreement Form must be completed at the time of first enrolment for each new participant with your organisation.
Participant Agreement Forms are not required for subsequent enrolments with the same organisation.
You are not required to forward a copy to the Department but must retain the original document for your records.
When you're ready to deliver training, there's a few more things you need to know depending on who your students are, and to claim subsidies.
Create and manage training accounts
We have online systems in place to enable you to manage your training accounts and make claims for subsidies.
Get to know the systems and what you need to use them for at System access.
Training School Students
Some processes are different for training candidates who are still in school.
See everything you need to know at Training School Students.
Training Apprentices and Trainees
There are specific responsibilities and processes for providers delivering training to apprentices and trainees.
See everything you need to know at Apprentices and Trainees.
Delivery Progress and Payments
You need to claim your subsidy payments at the completion of each unit of competency. You will need to submit AVETMISS data to receive a subsidy and support this process.
All VET subsidies for accredited training are done in the standard system for training account payments.
