Allocation of Funds

There are four components in this program. Allocation is determined as follows:

Payments are based on $500 per commencement remaining active or completed, and $300 per commencement subsequently cancelled or withdrawn.

Payments are made in two components, an advance payment and an adjustment payment:

For example, if in the previous year there were 18 commencements remaining active or completed, one commencement subsequently cancelled or withdrawn, and the advance payment paid in that year was $4800, the following payments would apply this year:

Occasionally, where student numbers decrease significantly, the advance payment paid in the previous year may be more than the full payment the school was entitled to. In these cases, the difference will be recouped.

Recoupment Process

Under the VET - SATs component, an advance payment is made based on previous calendar year SATs commencements, as an estimation of the SATs commencements expected for the current calendar year. Occasionally, where student numbers decrease significantly, the advance payment paid in the previous year may be more than the full payment the school was entitled to. In these cases, the difference will be recouped.

How to Apply

Schools do not need to apply for this funding. Entitlements are automatically calculated each year by State Schools Division and paid to schools.
