You may be eligible for Subsidised Training
Eligible students may be able to access a range of government funding to help subsidise the cost of your training
The User Choice 2021-23 program provides a public funding contribution towards the cost of training and assessment 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. Usually students are required to pay a co-contribution fee. School-based apprentices and trainers are not required to pay a co-contribution fee while they are still at school but may be required to pay fees once their training contract has been converted to full time or part time post school.
To be eligible for a government contribution towards the costs of training, an apprentice or trainee must:
- have entered into a training contract for a qualification that is funded by the Department of Youth Justice, Employment, Small Business and Training (DYESBT)
- be registered in DYESBT’s registration system DELTA
- the contract commencement date or recommencement date must be on or after 1 July 2010
- the training provider selected to deliver the training must hold a Skills Assure Supplier (SAS) status for the nominated qualification

If you’re not eligible for subsidised training, you may still pay for your training including accessing a Redmako Learning payment plan and pay off your course fees bit by bit while you study.
