The Training Fund reserves the right to determine eligibility and the value of the grant to be paid to a GTO for individual apprentices/trainees, particularly in situations involving a reduction in term and/or if the GTO is not the original employer of the indentured apprentice/trainee.

Apprentices/trainees employed by a GTO may be eligible to claim the Training Fund’s Accommodation Allowance and benefit from the Training Fund’s Supplementary Skills and OH&S program.

Information for apprentices & trainees Accommodation Allowance The Training Fund’s Accommodation Allowance program can help eligible regional apprentices and trainees to reduce costs they incur as part of their training.

To be eligible, regional apprentices/trainees must be registered with the Department of Training and Workforce Development full-time in one of the apprenticeships/traineeships listed below, with an active training status.

The Accommodation Allowance provides regional apprentices/trainees with up to $1,400 to assist with commercial accommodation costs incurred if they are required to travel more than 100km (200km round trip) from their residential address to complete their offthe-job training at with a Registered Training Provider (RTP). This is based on the shortest possible road distance from the apprentice/trainee’s usual place of residence in WA to the closest approved training venue.

The accommodation allowance applies to weekday stays only and does not apply to extra costs incurred during the accommodation period (ie internet, linen, meals, etc).

Eligible apprentices/trainees can claim up to $70 per day, to a maximum of $1,400 per financial year.

To make a claim, eligible apprentices/trainees are required to submit the following documents to the Training Fund, within sixty days of the date of the last day in the training

period:

Completed claim form (can be downloaded from the Training Fund’s website).

• Tax invoice from the accommodation provider and proof of payment.

• Verification from RTO of complete attendance during training.

• NOTE The Construction Training Fund Accommodation Allowance is supplementary to that provided to eligible apprentices/trainees by the Department of Training and Workforce Development (DTWD). The final amount of assistance made available from the Training Fund to an eligible apprentice will be based on the amount paid for accommodation as noted on the invoice, less the amount of the allowance provided by DTWD and will not exceed $70 per night’s accommodation.

Please refer to general conditions of eligibility and Supplementary Skills Program for further information.

Supplementary Skills and Occupational Health & Safety Programs The Training Fund’s Supplementary Skills and Occupational Health & Safety Programs provide subsidies to eligible construction industry workers (including apprentices and trainees) who undertake training in a range of Training Fund approved short training courses to obtain or upgrade the skills essential for their work role.

The main areas covered in the Supplementary Skills program are:

Construction Skills • Industry Skills • Software Skills • Occupational Licensing • Higher Qualifications • Occupational Health & Safety • Courses recognised in the Training Fund’s Supplementary Skills program have direct benefits for the skills and/or knowledge base of workers in the construction industry.

Training in these courses is delivered under the authority of a RTP recognised by the WA Training Accreditation Council (TAC) or similar authority.

Only training delivered by private RTPs and conducted in Western Australia is recognised in the Supplementary Skills and OH&S Program. Courses delivered by State training providers (STPs, formerly TAFE colleges) in the metropolitan area are not included in the Training Fund’s Supplementary Skills and OH&S Program.

In some circumstances, trainees in regional areas may claim for an approved course delivered by the nearest regional public provider in the absence of a suitable private RTP, subject to prior agreement between the regional provider and the Training Fund.

The Construction Skills, OH&S, Industry Skills and Software Skills areas within the Supplementary Skills program offer a subsidy to eligible trainees of $30 per hour (to a maximum of $240 per eight hour day, or 70% of the actual course cost, whichever is lower) for a wide range of courses delivered by metropolitan private RTPs. The maximum amount that can be claimed per employee, per course, is $1,300.

For training undertaken at regional private RTPs, the Training Fund can provide a subsidy of $33 per hour (to a maximum of $264 per eight hour day, or 80% of the actual course cost, whichever is lower) towards an eligible course. The maximum amount that can be claimed per employee, per course, is $1,700.

Claiming a Supplementary Skills and OH&S rebate An eligible trainee can claim a Supplementary Skills and OH&S rebate directly from the

Training Fund, by submitting the following documentation:

On-line training The Training Fund currently recognises a small number of courses delivered on-line by private RTPs.

Industry stakeholders have expressed concern about the validity of on-line training and assessment methodologies in some circumstances. As a result, the Construction Training Council conducts a review of the relevance of new courses not previously subsidised by the Training Fund prior to acceptance and allocation of subsidies.

On-line courses may be subsidised for eligible trainees if:

The qualification or training outcome is recognised and/or accredited by an appropriate • accrediting authority The RTP can demonstrate robust assessment procedures for on-line trainees • Please refer to general conditions of eligibility for further information about eligibility.

Training in these courses must be delivered under the authority of a private RTP recognised by the WA Training Accreditation Council (TAC) or similar authority.

The Training Fund requires the training to be undertaken by a person with a Certificate IV qualification in workplace training and assessment or a relevant qualification in the case of non-accredited courses. Training must be conducted in Western Australia.

The Supplementary Skills and OH&S program provides a subsidy of up to $30 per hour (to a maximum of $240 per eight hour day, or 70% of the actual course cost, whichever is lower) for a wide range of courses undertaken by eligible employees at metropolitan RTPs.

The subsidy provided by the Training Fund must be passed on in full to the trainee, irrespective of the actual fee charged for the course. Subsidy claims cannot be paid for trainees who fail to complete the course in full.

The Training Fund regularly reviews the list of approved courses and may update these throughout the year. Bulk billing RTPs will be issued with a list of identification codes for the approved courses they deliver.
