User Choice Funding (Apprenticeship and traineeship funding)

The User Choice 2017-20 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 skills needs of industry and respond to changing government priorities.

The three-year policy from 1 July 2017 recognises that employment-based training aligned to skills shortages is a critical priority for the Queensland Government.

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 into legally binding training contracts with their employers and receive structured training to achieve a nationally recognised qualification.
