Travel and accommodation allowance

The Department of Training and Workforce Development provides financial assistance to support off the job training being delivered to apprentices (including trainees, cadets and interns) who are, or would normally be, required to travel long distances to attend training.

Through the Travel and accommodation allowance (TAA) policy for apprenticeships financial assistance is provided to assist with the travel and accommodation expenses of:

  • apprentices required to travel long distance to attend off the job training; and
  • training provider lecturers who travel to deliver off the job training to a group of apprentices.

Eligible employers who employ an apprentice or trainee under a federal Modern Award and pay their travel and/or accommodation costs to attend off the job training are eligible to claim travel and accommodation allowance.

Eligible RTOs can apply for travel and accommodation allowance to send lecturers to deliver off the job training to groups of apprentices or trainees so they do not have to travel long distances to attend training.
