Hello there! Thank you for showing interest in the Professional Qualifications offered by CPLE. This page specifically discusses Skilled Capital Funding for the Qualifications. Please check out other funding options here if this is not applicable to you, if you’re interested in a course.

What is Skilled Capital Funding?

Skilled Capital is an ACT Government training initiative, funded by the ACT and Australian Governments. Skilled Capital provides subsidised training in a selection of qualifications from the ACT Skills Needs Lists. Skilled Capital is available to eligible learners wanting to enrol into a nationally recognised qualification. Skilled Capital Funding is subject to available places. All learners must meet eligibility requirements and must pass a Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) assessment before enrolment can be offered.

Other Funding Options

Communities@Work’s Centre of Professional Learning and Education (RTO 88148), offers eligible candidates the opportunity to enrol into one of our courses through a User Choice funded traineeship, for new and existing employees. Our traineeships are combined with structured training and paid work, allowing trainees to earn while they learn and receive a nationally recognised qualification.

We also offer a Fee-For-Service arrangement that is not linked to any Government funding or subsidised training. Learners who do not meet eligibility through Government funding arrangements have the opportunity to enrol through FFS arrangements. Where funding is not offered learners, they are liable to pay the full fees for the cost of training. Please refer to our fee policy for charges that can occur. All learners must meet eligibility requirements and must pass a Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) assessment before enrolment can be offered.
