What is TSAGT Funding?

And how does it work?

The Trade Skills Assessment and Gap Training (TSAGT) program is designed to assess the skills of experienced individuals who demonstrate substantial competency in priority trade qualifications. Its main objectives are to address trade skills shortages, meet emerging industry needs, support career advancement, and enable individuals to attain qualifications in priority trade areas.

Major Training Group proudly receives funding from the Queensland Government’s Department of Employment, Small Business, and Training (DESBT) for this program.

The program consists of two parts: Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and gap training.

RPL or Recognition of prior learning involves a thorough assessment of your existing knowledge and skills, considering past qualifications, work experience, and life experience. After evaluating your skills, we’ll determine if you require additional training, known as gap training, to complete the qualification.

The Queensland Government will cover the costs of the RPL process, and most of the gap training expenses will also be funded. Participants may need to make a minimal contribution of $1.60 per hour of gap training.

Funding Eligibility

To be eligible for the program, participants must demonstrate substantial competency in a priority trade qualification, complete a minimum of 60% of the qualification through RPL, and require gap training for no more than 40% of the funded competencies of the qualification. Additionally, participants must meet certain criteria, such as being aged 21 or over, permanently residing in Queensland, being an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or meeting specific visa requirements, not holding a previous trade qualification in the same industry area, and not working for a government department or agency.
