What is User Choice

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.

Apprenticeships and traineeships combine training with working in a real job, with a real boss, for a real wage. Apprentices and trainees work towards the completion of a nationally recognised qualification while learning valuable skills at work and under the guidance of a training organisation.

Who is eligible for User Choice?

To commence a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship, the following must be met:

  • have entered into a Training Contract for a qualification that is funded by the department
  • be registered on DELTA with a commencement date
  • complete 7.5 hours per week of paid employment. This may be averaged over a 3 month period.
  • Over the period of a year, the employer must provide at a minimum the equivalent of 375 hours (50 days) of paid employment.

The student must be either:

  • enrolled at, and attending, a registered government school or an accredited non-government school; or
  • registered with the Home Education Unit of the Department of Education as a home-schooled student; or
  • undertaking Year 11 or 12 studies at an Australian Technical/Trade College or TAFE institute (which is registered as a school – not all TAFE institutes are registered as schools).
  • The student must be enrolled in either Years 10, 11 or 12 and progressing towards the attainment of a Queensland Certificate of Education or equivalent and/or a vocational qualification.

Student Co-Contribution Fees

Student contribution fees are the non-government financial contribution to the cost of the training and assessment services provided by TLC. It may be paid on behalf of the student by their employer or a third party unrelated to the TLC. In some cases, though, TLC may provide either a partial or full exemption for a student in respect to the co-contribution fee.

Student contribution fees under the User Choice program are set at $1.60 per nominal hour for each unit of competency/module to be calculated at the commencement of the unit of competency/module.
