Training Aid Australia understands the cost associated to receiving education and the difficulties some students may have with paying for their training. That’s why we want to provide students with Fee Help information and payment options to allow all people the chance to book into that course they want to undertake.
Apprenticeship and Traineeship Funding
This type of funding is available to new employees and existing employees who are enrolled into a Cert IV qualification of higher. The qualification must also be on the approved training list.
Apprentices and trainees must be provided with “hands on” work, appropriate facilities and training at work to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to complete the apprenticeship or traineeship. Apprentices and trainees must be enrolled in an approved course of formal training with an RTO.
All apprenticeships and traineeships require:
- A training contract that is signed by both the employer and apprentice or trainee and approved by State Training Services, a division of the DET
- Paid employment under an appropriate industrial arrangement (for example, an award or enterprise agreement)
- A training plan endorsed by an RTO that meets the requirements of the relevant vocational training order for the apprenticeship or traineeship and specifies the training required to achieve the appropriate nationally recognised qualification.
A new employee must have been working with the employer for less than 3 months. An existing employee is considered to have been working for the company for longer than 3 months.
Training Aid Australia also offers a range of payment plans to assist students with their education fees. Some payment plans include:
- An initial deposit to enrol before further payments
- An initial deposit followed by individual payments per unit of competency
