Teenage Education Payment (TEP)

The Teenage Education Payment (TEP) supports carers and guardians of young people aged 16-18 years in out-of-home care (OOHC) to remain engaged in school or other education and training. 

The Teenage Education Payment Guidelines (PDF, 312.1 KB) provide information for DCJ District and NGO OOHC providers, caseworkers, carers and young people on eligibility requirements, the application process, and the requirements for providers in administering payments.
