What is User Choice?

User Choice Funding is a national funding scheme that subsidises the cost of an Australian apprenticeship or traineeship. The level of funding varies by state, and in Queensland the subsidies are paid directly to the Registered Training Organisation (RTO) who delivers the training.

User Choice Funding QLD reduces the cost of training employers have to pay. It covers a wide range of industries with nationally recognised qualifications from Certificate II through to Advanced Diploma.

To access User Choice Funding you must already be employed in an approved apprenticeship or traineeship. As a minimum you must also be an Australian citizen, or permanent resident, or NZ passport holder with more than 6 months residency, or hold another eligible visa; entered into a training contract for a qualification funded by the government; enrolled with a pre-qualified supplier (a government-approved training provider) and at least 15 years old.

Your employer will need to prove that you receive proper supervision at work as well as on-the-job instructions and guidance. They must also demonstrate that you will be supported to attend off-site training and be given time to complete assignment tasks.
