Higher Level Skills subsidised funding:  To access Higher Level Skills funding for this course, the prospective student must provide evidence that they are an existing PAID worker in the Community Services industry for the duration of the course. Existing worker means a current employee who has a one month or more employment relationship with their employer and has actively fulfilled work duties for this period. The one month working relationship could be full-time or on a part-time/casual employment equivalent basis. Existing workers have access to employee entitlements and therefore do not include volunteers. If you would like to enrol in the course using this funding, you will need to obtain a letter of employment or payslip which clearly shows both your name and your employer’s name, or some other proof of employment (e.g. a business card) which confirms you work in the industry, to provide to TAFE Queensland North at time of enrolment.  If you are unable to access the subsidised funding, the Full Fee price will be payable and payment can be made upfront or through a payment plan
