The User Choice 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.
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.
QTIS provides comprehensive information on all apprenticeships and traineeships that are approved in Queensland, including the priority level and government contribution.
Year 12 fee-free training is available through two Queensland Government VET investment programs – the Certificate 3 Guarantee and User Choice. Read more about fee-free training in high priority areas for Year 12 graduates.
