Queensland Funding

User Choice – QLD

The User Choice 2016-17 program provides a public funding contribution towards the cost of training and assessment services for eligible Queensland apprentices and trainees. The program aims to provide funding aligned to the skill needs of industry and respond to changing government priorities.

How does the program work?

The program provides the flexibility for apprentices, trainees and their employers to select a preferred registered training organisation (RTO) from a list of pre-qualified suppliers for the delivery of nationally recognised, accredited training to meet their specific needs. The program works in conjunction with the Commonwealth Australian Apprenticeships System, under which apprentices and trainees (also known in some jurisdictions as “Australian Apprentices”) enter legally binding training contracts with their employers and receive structured training to achieve a nationally recognised qualification.

You are eligible for User Choice funding if:

Please note: Apprentices and trainees can only receive one government contribution for a User Choice funded qualification at any single point in time i.e. a student cannot be funded to undertake two apprenticeships or traineeships at the same time.

In addition, apprentices and trainees, can only receive a maximum of two government funding contributions under the current User Choice program. A second qualification will only be funded if it has a higher priority ranking than the first qualification that has been completed.
