Travel and accommodation subsidies

The Department of Education, Training and Employment provides a travel and accommodation subsidy for apprentices and trainees who are required to travel at least 100kms return to attend training in relation to their apprenticeship or traineeship. The department utilises MAPINFO to determine distances.
