User Choice Program

The User Choice Program providers a public funding contribution towards the cost of training and assessment services for eligible Queensland apprentices and trainees.

The program provides the flexibility for apprentices, trainees and their employers to select a preferred Registered Training Organisation (RTO) from a list of pre-approved suppliers for the delivery of nationally recognised, accredited training to meet their specific needs. The program works in conjunction with the Commonwealth Australian Apprenticeship system, under which apprentices and trainees enter into legally binding training contracts with their employer receive structured training to achieve a nationally recognised qualification.
