Pre-Qualified Supplier (PQS)

Pre-Qualified Supplier (PQS)

The Queensland Government’s 2017-18 Annual VET Investment Plan provides a breakdown of the VET investment budget, a high level summary of the VET investment programs, and the priorities for government within these programs.

The plan outlines VET investment through the following key programs and strategic interventions:

  • Certificate 3 Guarantee
  • User Choice (apprenticeships and traineeships)
  • Higher Level Skills
  • Skilling Queenslanders for Work
  • Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS)
  • Public provider grants.

To be eligible to deliver training and assessment services subsidised by the Department of Education and Training (DET) through one of its VET Investment Plan funded programs, a registered training organisation (RTO) must have pre-qualified supplier (PQS) status.

For more information about how to become a PQS click here.  New RTOs entering the VET market are strongly encouraged to view the DET documentation.
