  • SUPPORT NETWORKS for New Apprenticeships to Assist Completions

  • The Project 1999-2000

  • Department of Education,Training

  • and Youth Affairs


  • Is non-completion a concern?

  • Yes, but

  • some non-completion will always occur (move to a better job,

  • illness, personal reasons); and

  • partial completion may not be a negative outcome (skills gained lead to employment).


  • Research into non-completion

  • In regard to non-completion:

  • the longer a person stays in the traineeship, the better theemployment outcomes.


  • Can support networks assist

  • with completion?


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.


  • 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:

    • regional model

    • Indigenous community model

    • industry driven model

    • community driven model


  • Stage Two (Dec 1999–Sept 2000):

  • Trialing of the 4 models

  • The trialing phase involved 3 States:

  • regional model - Melbourne Vic

  • Indigenous model -Torres Strait NT

  • industry driven model - Illawarra NSW

  • community driven model - Bega NSW


  • Regional Support Model

  • Process: Regular meetings, improved early warning monitoring systems, better information provision particularly in relation to the ‘VET agency’ roles.

  • Outcomes: New Apprentices and employers know who to contact for assistance with problems; employers are more aware of obligations and duties; and agencies have an improved monitoring system to flag potential problems.


  • Remote Indigenous Community

  • Support Model

  • Process: Regular meetings, appropriate support strategies, better information provision through radio broadcasts.

  • Outcomes: The community is better able to provide support; employers have a better appreciation of what is required; New Apprentices, employers and involved community members are more aware and able to access programmes and agencies providing support.


Industry Driven

Volunteer Mentor Support Model

  • Process: Mentoring programme established, regular mentoring meetings with employers and New Apprentices, referral to outside agencies where required.

  • Outcomes: Improved communication between al parties and improved linkage in the delivery of training services.


Community Driven

Volunteer Support Model

  • Process: Mentoring programme established, regular mentoring meetings with employers and New Apprentices, referral to outside agencies where required.

  • Outcomes: Improved communication between all parties and improved linkage in the delivery of training services.
