Funding Information

User Choice Funding

Traineeships are funded by the Queensland Government under the User Choice Policy 2017-2020. User Choice provides a public funding contribution towards the cost of training and assessment services for eligible Queensland Apprentices and Trainees

Eligible trainees that meet the Queensland state funding requirements will be charged a set fee per nominal hour. These fees are calculated at a regulated rate of $1.60 per nominal hour.

Nominal hours will vary depending on the qualification and the electives chosen. An individual training plan will be created for Trainees that details nominal hours and associated fees.  Concession rates of 40% ($0.64 per nominal hour) apply for students who hold a current Health Care Card or who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. For eligible school-based trainees, the training is fee-free. Further information on Apprenticeships and Traineeships can be found HERE
