The Higher Qualification Pathways Project is part of the Learner Pathways Business Activity and aims to assist learners to pursue educational pathways through e-learning programs for higher qualifications by providing contestable, co-investment funding for RTOs, industry and community organisations to investigate innovative technology-based delivery and/or support models which allow individuals to gain higher VET qualifications, skills sets (at Diploma level or higher) and/or entry into higher education.
Stage 1 funding was completed in early December and successful applicants have been funded to undertake a pilot during January to June 2012 which consists of a trial with a group of 10 learners or more learners who are aiming to articulate to a higher qualification or an improved employment outcome. Findings from the trial will be presented as a business case/project plan to determine whether successful teams will be eligible to receive further funding of up to $40,000 (excluding GST) to scale up/out their project in July-December 2012 in Stage 2 (if selected and on-going funding being available).
