The funding provided for Australian Apprenticeships is known as User Choice. User Choice is a national funding policy for Australian Apprenticeships promoting choice in training services provided to Employers and Australian Apprentices. The program aims to provide funding aligned to the skill needs of industry and respond to changing government priorities.
A key feature of Australian Apprenticeships is more flexibility for the users (employers and Australian Apprentices) of the training system. User Choice is a model for achieving client responsive training which means that businesses and Australian Apprentices can select their own registered training organisation (RTO) and negotiate how, where and when the training and assessment is to occur.ACCCO is a pre-qualified supplier approved by the ACT Government to provide training for User Choice qualifications. Please see the ACT Government Skills Canberra website for more information about User Choice training and to check your eligibility.
