Our Process, Fees & Agreements

At Montague Consulting we know that it is hard to know what you can afford without knowing first what government funded training is available to you.

To make it simpler, we have broken our fee down into 3 Stages. Our 3 Stage process enables you to stay in control, only proceeding through the stages when you are sufficient information to make an informed decision.

Please remember that we cannot guarantee the funding outcome because:

  • government funding training requirements change all the time and
  • the ultimate decision is made by a government agency – not us

However as we are operating in this changing environment all the time we are best placed to maximise the government funding opportunities on your behalf.

Stage 1


Aim: To do a quick system-check to see if the qualification you are considering attracts either Commonwealth &/or State funding.

What we will do: Based on the information contained within our application form, we will provide you a brief report of what government funded training is available. Should no funding be possible, we will make suggestions as to other qualifications that may align to your stated needs which could attract funding.

Please note:

  • At this stage we cannot guarantee that government funded training is available for you.
  • Only the potential value of government funded training will be provided.
  • No details about the type of funding available will be given (until Stage 2)
  • No details about possible training providers will be given (until Stages 2 and 3)
  • We will provide an estimate of the potential cost of required co-contribution. Most government funded training now requires a form of co-contribution so individuals need to be prepared to pay something for their qualification.
