Connect’n’Grow is approved as a Skills Assure Supplier (SAS) to deliver training under the Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) Initiative, funded by the Queensland Government.

VETiS funding is available for senior school students to complete one approved VETiS qualification while at school. Therefore, it is very important that students take the time to consider their training options before committing to a course of study which will use up their one subsidised entitlement. Senior high school students may choose to use their funding to complete one of these two qualifications:

  • Certificate II in Health Services Assistance (HLT23215)
  • Certificate II in Community Services (CHC22015)

Please note: students choosing to complete a VETiS qualification may still be eligible to access further Queensland Government subsidised post-school training.

To be eligible to access our VETiS-funded qualifications, the student must

  • be currently enrolled in a secondary school (Year 10, 11 and 12)
  • have not previously utilised their entitlement by completing another VETiS-funded qualification;
  • permanently reside in Queensland; and
  • be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident (includes humanitarian entrant), temporary resident with the necessary via and work permits on the pathway to permanent residence, or a New Zealand citizen.

Each student has the option to choose to access their VETiS funding for one of these qualification or to rather choose to pay a Fee for Service price. Please contact your school VET Coordinator to confirm your Fee for Service price.

Connect ‘n’ Grow  programs are delivered in partnership with the nominated secondary school (partner school).
Each partner school has a signed Third Party Agreement in place with Connect ‘n’ Grow  and as such, is
authorised to deliver training under the auspices of Connect ‘n’ Grow .
