Traineeships (User Choice)

In Queensland (QLD), Traineeships and Apprenticeships are funded under the QLD Government User Choice (2017-20) Program, which provides a public funding contribution towards the cost of training and assessment services for eligible Queenslanders.

The program aims to provide funding aligned to the skills needs of the industry and respond to changing government priorities. The policy recognises that employment-based training aligned to skills shortages is a critical priority for the Queensland Government.

The program provides the flexibility for apprentices, trainees, and their employers to select a preferred registered training organisation (RTO) such as Charlton Brown, for the delivery of training to meet their needs. The program works in conjunction with the Commonwealth Australian Apprenticeships System, under which apprentices and trainees 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.

VET Student Loans

VET Student Loans (VSL) is an Australian Government loan program that helps eligible students enroll in approved higher level vocational education and training (VET) at approved training providers pay their tuition fees.

It is a loan from the Commonwealth that will remain a personal debt until it is repaid to the Commonwealth. The loan may, until the debt is repaid, reduce a person’s take home (after tax) wage or salary and may reduce the person’s borrowing capacity.

The loan must be paid to the Australian Taxation Office when your income reaches the wage threshold, as part of your income tax return. Students should seek independent financial advice before applying for a loan. If you are a full fee paying student, a loan fee of 20% will be added to the VSL loan amount. Each eligible student has a FEE-HELP limit that can be used over their lifetime. The loan cannot be greater than the student’s remaining FEE-HELP balance. The Commonwealth pays the funds directly to your training provider for your tuition fees. Your Commonwealth Higher Education SupportNumber (CHESSN) is connected to information about your VSL debt.
