New model of Apprenticeship Support Services.

New model of Apprenticeship Support Services.

The National Australian Apprenticeships Association represents the organisations that deliver support services to all apprentices and trainees in Australia. The Australian Government have just announced the providers to deliver the new model of support services that will commence from July 1st 2024.

Nine organisations have been chosen to deliver the services across Australia with a separate procurement for the Northern Teritory still underway.

The new model includes enhanced assessment at the beginning of the apprenticeship, strengthened mentoring support, enhanced support for key client groups, the introduction of specialist service providers for First Nations apprentices, women in male-dominated trades and clean energy apprentices. The new Apprenticeship Data Management System (ADMS) will also play a more prominent role in targeted communication and administration.

The Association is strongly supportive of the new model which aims to place the apprentice at the centre of service provision. The new model is the result of an exhaustive review process that seeks to drive up completion rates and improve the level of support available – particularly for key client groups.

The Association welcomes the five new providers to the Network and congratulates the existing members that hold 41 of the 50 contracts from July 1st.
