Subsidies and Allowances

All Accredited AGPT Training Practices are entitled to a Training Practice Subsidy and Teaching Allowances.
There is currently no mandated rate and therefore the rate settled upon by your RTO within the Training Practice
Agreement is discretionary.

2022 SUPERVISOR & TRAINING PRACTICE PAYMENTS

The Training Practice Subsidy is paid to the practice to reimburse you for the cost of educational release for GPT1 and GPT2 Registrars. There is often not a Training Practice Subsidy for GPT3 and GPT4 because registrars are generally not required to engage in educational release activities with their RTO at this stage of their training.

Training Practice Subsidy rates vary between RTOs but you can generally expect the following rates:

TermHigh/Week SubsidyLow/Week Subsidy
GPT1$560$520
GPT2$280$260

TEACHING ALLOWANCES

Teaching allowances vary between RTOs and these payments partially reimburse GP supervisors for lost income while they are providing dedicated teaching to their registrar.

Generally teaching allowances are paid for mandatory teaching time only (i.e. the time stipulated in your Training Practice Agreement and normally only relates to GPT1 and GPT2 as follows:

TermRequired dedicated
teaching hours (FTE)
High/Week
subsidy
Low/Week
Subsidy
GPT13$420$360
GPT21.5$210$180

TRAINING PRACTICE SUBSIDIES AND TEACHING ALLOWANCES

A growing number of RTOs pay Training Practice Subsidies and Teaching Allowances through recipient generated tax invoice. This means upon submission by your practice of the required training records, your RTO will raise an invoice on your behalf and pay the invoice into your pre-arranged nominated training practice bank account.

Note: RTOs do not normally pay teaching allowances directly to individual supervisors.

2023 NATIONALLY CONSISTENT PAYMENTS
