Travel and accommodation subsidies

The Department of Education and Training provides a travel and accommodation subsidy to eligible apprentices and trainees (not school-based) to attend training for their apprenticeship or traineeship.

School-based apprentices and trainees should contact their school to discuss subsidies.

Australian Government assistance

The Australian Government provides the following support and financial help to eligible apprentices and trainees:

User Choice

Some training organisations are funded by the department to provide training and assessment services for some apprenticeships and traineeships, at a reduced cost, under the department's User Choice program. The employer and apprentice or trainee have the option of selecting one of these training organisations, or choosing to pay the full amount for training delivered by another training organisation.

Costs of training

Be prepared that there may be costs associated with your apprenticeship or traineeship such as fees for attending the training organisation, uniform and equipment, textbooks or other study materials.

Disability support

There are a number of support services available to help apprentices and trainees with disability throughout their apprenticeship or traineeship. Services are available to the apprentice or trainee, their employer and the training organisation.

Read the ATIS-011 Disability assistance information sheet.
