Have you got a question about HPA and how we work? Take a look at our frequently asked questions below.

What types of disability does HPA support...

HPA is open to people with a whole range of disabilities with varying levels of support requirements. Our training programs are flexible and individually tailored with both 1:1 mentoring and group training with experienced support workers.

We’d love to have a chat with you further about your situation and any specific requirements that you might have. The important thing for all our trainees is that they have an end goal of employment.

What types of NDIS funding can I use at HPA...

We can assist in accessing a whole range of different lines of their NDIS funding in order to attend participate in our courses. These include SALES, Finding and Keeping a Job, Capacity Building and Core Supports.

Can I use HPA services if I am not on NDIS...

Yes, 100% we offer course and training for a host of both neurotypical and challenged individuals...

Are all HPA courses on line...

No, not all our course are online, our course can be delivered online, face-to-face in a classroom, self-paced via correspondence, or as a combination of both.

Where can I find your full fall schedule?

Once you have selected the course you want to study, you may choose between the prepaid fee and the payment plan option on the course page.

To pay for your course, you must have a Visa/Mastercard debit card or credit card.

If a company is paying for the course, they may pay the full amount upfront. Please contact HPA to request an invoice, email admin@higherpurposeacademy.com.au or call 1800 34 39 31

After we receive your course payment, we will email you the link to your enrolment forms.

What are the course requirement or prerequisites...

There are no formal requirements; however, you will need:

  • Sufficient language, literacy and numeracy skills to complete the course

  • Basic computer skills
  • Knowledge of common computing terms and word processing
  • Proficiency with web browser software and sending/receiving email, including email with attachment
  • Familiarity with navigating the Internet

If you are under 18 years of age, your parent or guardian must also accept the conditions of the Course Enrolment Agreement.

What is a USI...

The Unique Student Identifier or USI is a reference number made up of 10 numbers and letters that:

  • Creates a secure online record of your recognised training and qualifications gained in Australia, even from different training organisations
  • Will give you access to your training records and transcripts
  • Can be accessed online, anytime and anywhere
  • It is free and easy to create; and
  • Stays with you for life.

You need a USI upon enrolment with AOT as part of the legislative reporting requirements of a registered training organisation. We cannot issue a Certificate or Statement of Attainment without a USI.

From 1st January 2015, new legislation by the Australian Government advised that each person undertaking nationally recognised training are required to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). This must be collected and verified by the training organisation.

It is a mandatory requirement to provide your USI as part of your enrolment with AOT if you are:

  • An Australian expat or resident (you need a USI even if you do the course whilst living outside Australia)
  • An international learner living in Australia.

International learners not living in Australia are not required to submit a USI.

What are the course requirement or prerequisites...

Once the full course has been completed, a Certificate or Diploma qualification, e.g. BSB40515 Certificate IV in Business Administration. This certificate is nationally recognised.

​These will be posted to you as a PDF. You will then be able to print your certificate or attach it to your job applications.
