The pre-qualified Supplier (PQS) has been replaced by Skills Assure
Skills Assure is a key initiative in the Queensland skills strategy, Skills for Queensland – Great training for quality jobs. It is the next evolution of the pre-qualified supplier (PQS) system and will allow prospective students to easily identify those providers verified to deliver subsidised vocational education and training in Queensland.
The department will implement the Skills Assure initiative from 1 July 2020 for most PQS. Skills Assure will be rolled out for new entrants by September 2020.
