Themes to be covered

  • What is sustainability about?
  • Background information
  • What does Sustainability mean to Registered Apprenticeship
  • The Australian Apprenticeship System
  • What will be the role of Registered Apprenticeship to create and sustain a Green Economy?
  • How will Registered Apprenticeship adapt to the new and changing needs of green focused industries?
  • An Australian example - Go-Green Australian Apprenticeships
slide3

Sustainability

‘Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.’

Our Common Future, World Commission on Environment and Development (the Brundtland Commission) 1987.

OR

The concept of ‘sustainability’ proposes a balance between biophysical, economic, social and political systems in development. (Fien 2001)

OR

Enough – for all forever

African Delegate to Johannesburg (Rio+10) - 2002

The emerging opportunities for Registered Apprenticeship

‘The development of practical skills which promote sustainability in the workplace will be vital for employers of the future and for the wider community…’

  • Apprenticeships allow for the integration of sustainability into vocational education and training.
  • Education through action learning, group learning and problem-solving.

NCVER Report

World wide, education is regarded as the key to changing behaviour

the role of registered apprenticeships and sustainability
The Role of Registered Apprenticeships and sustainability
  • Registered Apprenticeships offer a structured guide for industry training. Sustainability can be embedded within the training.
slide7

The Role of Registered Apprenticeships and sustainability, cont.

  • Industry and the community need to articulate their needs for sustainability education and encourage a culture of sustainability awareness in Apprenticeships
  • Apprenticeship teaching and learning practice should promote sustainable development
  • Sustainability principles can be embedded in Apprenticeship policy and practice - short term and long term objectives need to be established.
slide8

Australian Apprenticeship System

  • Design
  • 11 Industry Skills Councils are responsible for the development of national Training Packages, which encompass qualifications, units of competence and assessment guidelines. Training Packages are developed following industry consultation and are used as the basis for Registered Apprenticeship. Each Industry Skills Council has an annual budget of up to $4 million.
  • Administration
  • The Australian Commonwealth Government allocates funding for the administration of Australian Apprenticeships – field officers (from Australian Apprenticeship Centres) visit employers to advise on vocational training outcomes and to complete Apprenticeship contracts. The State Governments fund registered training organisations to conduct training for Apprenticeships. The Commonwealth provides financial incentives of up to $4000 to employers who employ Apprentices.
slide9

Australian Apprenticeship System, Cont.

  • National qualifications undergo regular review to remain cognisant of industry needs. The review process entails national consultation:
  • workshops with employers, employer groups, unions and registered training organisations such TAFEs (training institutions similar to Community Colleges)
  • web-based review of draft qualifications and units of competence
  • State and Territory consultations (6 States, 2 Territories).
  • In addition to the review of Training Packages, Apprenticeships can be customised (within their packaging guidelines) to incorporate sustainable units. This was conducted under the Go-Green Australian Apprenticeship projects. Budget $140,000 per project – 3 projects to date.
slide10

Australian Apprenticeship System, Cont.

  • Sustainable Design
  • Sustainability has been addressed in many Training Packages by embedding units of competence that encompass sustainability principles.
  • Examples of these units include:
  • Participate in environmentally sustainable work practices
  • Implement and monitor environmentally sustainable work practices
  • Develop workplace policy and procedures for sustainability.
slide11

Registered Apprenticeship and the new and changing needs of green focused industries

  • Core Green (Environmental/Sustainable) Jobs:
  • Renewable energy invention, manufacturing, distribution and installation
  • Sustainable, water-smart farming and forestry
  • Green design, building construction, energy efficiency and retrofits
  • Jobs with Environmental/Sustainable Value Adding:
  • Mining workers who help save fuel or rehabilitate land
  • Office managers helping reduce energy waste
  • Chefs who choose locally grown, environmentally-friendly produce
slide12

The Challenge – Greening Existing Occupations in Registered Apprenticeship

  • Existing occupations account for 70-80% of overall resource use and emissions. As industries respond to ‘greening’ workers need training and up-skilling.

‘Go-Green’

Australian Apprenticeships

Project Objective

A suite of Australian Apprenticeship Sample Training Programs, across industry for occupations that relate to the environment or sustainability.

slide14

Lead by Example

  • Making Apprenticeship training more adaptable to industry.
  • ‘Ready to use’ examples of implementation methods for Australian Apprenticeships.
  • Easy ‘off the shelf’ ways for Registered Apprenticeship to incorporate sustainability.
