Apprenticeship and Traineeship Funding

We have partnered with Australian state government initiatives to provide apprenticeship and traineeship students with government subsidised training. This means that more students are able to get the training they want without the burden of cost. Each state has it’s own specific funding and is listed below. For more information, follow the links provided or give us a call today.


The Queensland Government initiative provides public funding towards the cost of training and assessment for eligible Queensland apprentices and trainees. This program provides the flexibility to select your preferred registered training organisation (RTO) from a list of pre-qualified suppliers (PSQ) for the delivery of accredited training to meet your specific needs. Construction Training Institute is a PSQ for this initiative.
