Certificate 3 Guarantee Boost Back To Work Program

Certificate 3 Guarantee Boost (Back To Work Program)

What is the Certificate 3 Guarantee Boost?

The Certificate 3 Guarantee Boost provides eligible jobseekers with funding for training to help secure local jobs. Training may include ‘second chance’ training for jobseekers or workers who already have a Certificate 3 (or higher) level qualification but need new or updated skills to gain, change or retain employment.

Back to Work Jobseeker Officers will work with jobseekers or those at risk of losing their jobs to:

  • Provide career advice that helps jobseekers find a job that suits them
  • Find training that is linked to real jobs in the region
  • Help jobseekers determine their individual skills as well as services and supports that may be of assistance
  • Provide independent advice on career and training opportunities and
  • Help jobseekers understand their training options and link them with training connected with jobs in the region.

Back to Work Jobseeker Officers

Back to Work’s Jobseeker Officers support unemployed jobseekers or employees that are at risk of unemployment to identify and connect with training and skills development. Jobseeker Officers can undertake Career and Training Assessments which assess an individual’s eligibility for subsidised training and recommend a training pathway including the Certificate 3 Guarantee Boost.

Back to Work Jobseeker Officers work with jobseekers or those at risk of losing their jobs to:

  • Get career advice that helps them to find a job that suits them
  • Find training that is linked to real jobs in the region
  • Help jobseekers to determine their individual skills, as well as services and support that may be of assistance
  • Provide independent advice on career and training opportunities

To learn more contact your local Jobseeker Officer.

How to Apply

Back to Work Jobseeker Officers will assess a jobseeker’s existing qualifications, potential training needs and refer individuals to a subsidised training opportunity. If the Certificate 3 Guarantee Boost is not the right opportunity then other options can be explored.

You may be eligible for the Queensland Government’s Certificate 3 Guarantee Boost, assisting unemployed jobseekers or those at risk of unemployment to link with training opportunities to help with finding a job or stay in employment.
