Models for Support NetworksAn ANTA / DETYA Project 1999-2000

Aim?To develop and trial support networks for New Apprentices at risk of not completing.The models had to be innovative, practical and self-sustaining. They should have national applicability and be transferable.

What is a Support Network? Strengthened communication networks that use existing infrastructure of intermediary organisations and use community and regional development activities where appropriate.


Support networks for new apprenticeships to assist completions the project 1999 2000

  • Stage One (May – Dec 1999):

  • Development of models

  • The researchphaseinvolved a literature search (national and international), focus group research and case study work.

    • Four models were developed:
