Today the Australian Government released the Australian Apprenticeship Services and Supports Discussion Paper. It is part of the commitment made at the Jobs and Skills Summit to work with states, territories and stakeholders to improve the apprenticeship system and drive-up completions.
The discussion paper explores the current non-financial services and supports available to seek views on how to address three key questions facing the apprenticeships system:
- What changes are needed to drive up the completion rate?
- How can apprenticeship services better encourage and support apprentices from diverse background?
- How can support services be optimised to me the current and future needs of apprentices and employers?
Consultation is open until 16 December 2022. To get involved download the discussion paper and submit your feedback. Your responses will inform future priorities within the Apprenticeship System.
