The Subsidy Framework

The Subsidy Framework must be read in conjunction with the Contract which contains the terms and conditions that must be satisfied for a subsidy to be paid.

The Framework explains how the subsidy is paid and clarifies arrangements for:

  • Price Banding
  • Recognition of Prior Learning
  • Bridging units
  • Attempts
  • On-job training and employer-based delivery
  • Completion payments
  • Student Course Fees and incidental expenses
  • Student Course Fee Concessions, Fee Exemptions and reimbursement to the Training Provider
  • Payments, including enterprise Training Providers.

Subsidy Calculators

The Subsidy Calculator allows you to estimate the subsidy for the courses you deliver under your Contract.

The Subsidy Calculator is an executable (.exe) file which will need to be downloaded to your PC and is accessed via the Provider Application using your STELA login credentials.

Some stakeholders may be granted access to the Subsidy Calculators upon request. Email and indicate the name and nature of your organisation and the way you will benefit from having access to the Subsidy Calculator. Your email must come from your personal business address, not a generic admin@ address.

For AppleMac users

The Subsidy Calculator is optimised for window-based PC's only. If your organisation uses AppleMac products, complete the Subsidy Request Form (Excel) and submit it to and we will perform the searches for you. Your results will be returned to you within 2 business days.

Result Code 70 and Academic Pass (AP)

The Minister has published a list of Units of Competency which are eligible for a subsidy payment for result code 70 and Academic Pass (AP). This code applies to units of competency in some qualifications that require students to achieve both on and off-job competency.

Detailed information can be found in the Data Collection and Payment Assessment Guideline.

AP70 Guiding Principles

We’ve reviewed the policy and process of AP70 with internal and external stakeholders and developed Guiding Principles to help us assess units of competency previously approved.

All units of competency previously approved will be reassesssed against the new guiding principles.

For more information about the changes, view the webinar recording.

For updates on assessment against training packages and approved units of comptetency, see Academic Pass 70 approved units of competency.
