VETiS Funded (QLD)

 

Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) initiative, funded by the Queensland Government.

Binnacle Training (RTO 31319) is approved as a Pre-qualified Supplier (PQS) to deliver Certificate II in Sport and Recreation (SIS20115) as a VETiS funded qualification.

All other Binnacle qualifications are delivered as 'Fee for Service' only as invoiced to the School.

Under the PQS system, funding follows the eligible student to their chosen PQS and is paid directly to the PQS on submission of the student’s validated training data.

VETiS funded by the VET investment budget is fee-free for students.  Under Binnacle’s partnership arrangement with schools, this means that the school should not pass on any fees to the student - pertaining to the VETiS-funded (Certificate II) qualification - where this has been subsidised through VETiS.

The VET investment budget will only fund one employment stream qualification.  This means if a student is currently enrolled in a VETiS funded qualification with another PQS RTO prior to enrolling in Binnacle’s VETiS-eligible Certificate II in Sport and Recreation, then this student would enrol into the Certificate II in Sport and Recreation as per Binnacle's normal ‘Fee for Service’ arrangement. See School Pricing >

Students will opt-in or opt-out of VETiS

ALL students will have the option to either 'opt in' or 'opt out' of the VETiS subsidy specific to the VETiS-funded qualification. This will include a student acknowledgement and a teacher acknowledgement to confirm - where students opt in - that

  • the student has been adequately informed about VETiS funding availability for this qualification prior to confirming their selection above; and
  • this VETiS information has also been supplied to the student's parent/guardian in the form of completion/return of Binnacle's Parent Acknowledgement.

Prior to reporting as VETiS, Binnacle's internal procedure will be to confirm with the nominated Program Manager the VETiS eligibility and appropriateness of these students to access their 1 x VETiS-funded place with Binnacle.

'Opt out' = Fee for Service:  Where students choose to 'opt out', and this action is confirmed by the school's VET Manager, a participant fee will be charged upon enrolment cut-off (31 July of commencement year) in Term 3. See School Pricing >

Fee-free for VETiS Students - Certificate II Participant Fees as invoiced to School WAIVED

For students who a) 'opt in' to Binnacle's Certificate II in Sport and Recreation as their 1 x VETiS funded qualification, and b) meet VETiS funding eligibility requirements, Binnacle will waive ALL Certificate II participant fees as invoiced to the school. This is as follows:

  • Certificate II in Sport and Recreation - $210 per student - WAIVED for all VETiS students
  • First Aid - $40 per student - WAIVED for all VETiS students
  • Sport-specific accreditations where required for competency completion (e.g. NRL modified games coach accreditation - $25 per student) - WAIVED for all VETiS students

Resource Fee Payable to School

Binnacle acknowledges the huge contribution made by our valued partner schools (with regard to both human and physical resources, including ongoing professional development and industry currency requirements of our Binnacle Teachers). A resource fee may be payable to your school in consideration for government funded training received by Binnacle, as PQS.  Contact us to discuss eligibility.

 

Thank you for your ongoing support of Binnacle Training. We hope the information above helps clarify the exciting VETiS opportunity presented to all Queensland students and how Binnacle is ensuring our partner schools are best supported.
