Expand your business with User Choice Funding

Existing Workers – Government funding available

State Funding has now been expanded to include existing employees allowing employers to upskill staff through funded training for apprentices and trainees.

This funding is across the board and there are over 600 qualifications available under the Traineeship and Apprenticeship system including Business, Retail and Hospitality. Currently only qualifications at a Priority One level attract User Choice funding for existing workers registered up to 31 December 2016.

And more good news …

  • Priority 2 qualifications are now funded at 87.5% of the Priority 1 price (previously was 75%)
  • Priority 3 qualifications now funded at 75% of the Priority 1 price (previously was 50%)

CEO BUSY At Work Paul Miles said the change in User Choice funding was great news toward helping increase Australia’s skilled workforce for the future.

“As strong advocates for the Australian Apprenticeship Program and sustainable real jobs we are thrilled to see the User Choice funding expanded to include existing workers.

“In order for Australia to build an effective and skilled workforce it is critical that businesses have highly trained employees.

“This funding should encourage businesses to upskill their current workforce by signing up their existing workers into apprenticeships and traineeships,”

The usual eligibility criteria apply.
