ABOUT APPRENTICESHIP SUPPORT AUSTRALIA
Apprenticeship Support Australia, is contracted by the Australian Government to provide skills development advice and solutions to businesses regardless of size, across all industry sectors.
Backed by the Australian chamber movement, we are committed to building a better Australia by promoting the participation in, and increasing the completion of VET programs, including apprenticeships and traineeships under the Australian Apprenticeships Support Network program.
Apprenticeship Support Australia combines 70 years of collective experience between Business Australia in New South Wales, the Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) in Victoria and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIWA) in Western Australia, to provide skills development advice and solutions to businesses and job-seekers across the country.
Formed in 2014, Apprenticeship Support Australia’s services are focused on lifting apprenticeship commencement and completion rates through the provision of support at every stage of the employment cycle. Our combined strength ensures that our customers, no matter how large or small, experience unprecedented levels of service quality and consistency, backed by access to Australia’s foremost business experts through the Business Chamber movement. Jobseekers, school students and apprentices can all access and receive ongoing support including career advice, job matching, and ongoing mentoring and support.
Our innovative careers hub, Skillsroad.com.au, is regarded as Australia’s number one destination for independent career advice. This free website offers a Career Quiz, over 350 career profiles, 360 degree Virtual Workplace, a Job-Fit test to assess work-readiness and career compatibility and other online tools and resources for students and job seekers as well as their parents, teachers and employers.
As the Australian economy continues to recover, reskilling and upskilling is more important than ever. Apprenticeship Support Australia has long advocated for support for existing employers to upskill and retrain through apprenticeships and traineeships, and we are committed to providing you with the best possible service.
We are committed to building upon existing expertise which has strengthened the Australian workforce with over 1.5 million registered apprentices and trainees since 1998. No matter the size of your business, tailored quality service will support the apprenticeship and traineeship pathways.
We’re grateful for the opportunity to support the National Skills Week, and further contribute to the skills, trades and VET sectors.
