Travel and accommodation subsidy claim form – apprentice and trainee
(not for school-based)
Please note: SCHOOL-BASED APPRENTICES AND TRAINEES should speak to their school about subsidy
assistance or visit the
Department of Education (Queensland)
website.
Conditions of Travel and Accommodation Subsidies
The Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT) provides financial assistance to subsidise additional costs incurred by
apprentices and trainees who travel specified distances to attend off-the-job training with their registered training organisation (RTO), which
is undertaken by them as part of their apprenticeship or traineeship training contract.
Please ensure you read and understand all of the following conditions before lodging your application. By lodging your application you are
declaring you have agreed to these conditions. Information provided by you on your claim for travel and accommodation will be subject to audit.
DESBT reserves the right to reclaim any monies paid or to deduct monies owed from future subsidies in instances including, but not limited to:
where claims for subsidy payment are deemed to be fraudulent; or
where the information provided is false; or
where the applicant did not attend training as claimed.
Are you eligible?
You may be eligible to claim if you are an apprentice or trainee who has:
1. attended the closest RTO offering your course - your closest RTO is the one that is nearest to your usual place of residence; and
2. travelled at least 100 kilometres return to attend.
An apprentice or trainee’s usual place of residence is defined as the place from which they travel to work each day. For apprentices and trainees
approved to receive Living Away From Home Allowance (LAFHA) from the Australian Government, this is defined as the ‘Away from Home’
address.
Calculation of subsidy payments
1. The travel distance will be calculated from your usual place of residence to the RTO campus location.
2. The most direct road route will be used to determine your eligibility for travel subsidies.
3. Where you attend training for one day only you are eligible for travel subsidy for one return trip but you are not entitled to any
accommodation subsidy.
4. If you travel for more than 300 kilometres return from your usual place of residence to your RTO, and the training is for more than one day,
you will receive the subsidy for one return trip only and the accommodation subsidy for the number of days you attended the RTO.
5. If you are registered in Queensland and residing interstate, you will only be eligible for a travel subsidy for the distance travelled that is in
excess of the distance you normally travel to your usual place of work.
6. Claim forms must be submitted to DESBT within six (6) months of the completion of the training block or attendance period being claimed
for.
Claim processing times and payments
1.
You need to allow up to four weeks for processing of travel and accommodation claims. A payment slip will be sent to you when the subsidy
has been processed.
2.
If your application is not fully complete or information is missing, processing of your application may be delayed and/or the application may
be returned to you.
3.
If the electronic payment will not go through to the financial institution account you nominated, a cheque will automatically be sent to the
postal address nominated on your application.
4.
For security purposes, subsidies will only be paid into a financial institution account bearing your name.
Apprentices and trainees whose training contracts are cancelled
If your training contract is cancelled you must seek permission from DESBT prior to attending any training relevant to your
apprenticeship/traineeship. If you do not seek prior approval, your claims for travel and accommodation to attend training while ‘cancelled’ may not
be approved. For more information, visit
