The department has released the Request for Tender for Australian Apprenticeship Support Services 2024–26 seeking responses from interested organisations to deliver services from 1 July 2024.
Australian Apprenticeship Support Services (Support Services) have been redesigned following extensive stakeholder consultation. The Support Services will provide enhanced individual and employer support for Australian Apprenticeships to strengthen the apprenticeship system, improve completion rates, and increase the diversity of the apprenticeship workforce. This will include improving wrap-around support for women in male-dominated trades, First Nations Australian Apprentices, Apprentices with disability, and Apprentices located in remote Australia. Specialist services are also being sought, including to support Apprentices working towards clean energy occupations.
Interested organisations are encouraged to respond to the Request for Tender (RFT) by the closing time and date.
Further information about the RFT is available on the department’s Employment Services Tenders website.
