Queensland User Choice Funding

The User Choice 2017-20 program provides a public funding contribution towards the cost of training and assessment services 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.

The three-year policy from 1 July 2017 recognises that employment-based training aligned to skills shortages is a critical priority for the Queensland Government.
