The Trade Skills Assessment and Gap Training (TSAGT) Program gives eligible Queenslanders with substantial industry experience the opportunity to complete a priority trade qualification.

Accessed via User Choice Skills Assure suppliers (SAS), it funds trade skills assessments and the gap training required to gain an eligible qualification.

The TSAGT Program is now open for new applications.

The program involves:

  • assessing the skills of experienced individuals who can demonstrate substantial competency in a priority trade qualification
  • providing gap training of no more than 40% of the funded competencies/points to complete the trade qualification.

In addition to supporting Queenslanders to achieve a priority trade qualification, the program aims to:

  • minimise current and potential trade skills shortages
  • address emerging trade skills needs in the economy or in communities
  • support individual career advancement within industries.

To learn more about the program, its aims and participant eligibility, read the TSAGT Program Policy.
