The Australian Government has established the National Partnership on Pre-Apprenticeship Training.
The agreement complements the National Agreement for Skills and Workforce Development, which affirms the commitment of all governments to work in partnership, and with business and industry, to develop the skills of the Australian people. The agreement also complements the NEA, which includes in its objectives that young people will make a successful transition from school to work or further study.
Through the National Partnership on Pre-Apprenticeship Training, pre-apprenticeship opportunities will ultimately support the apprenticeship and jobs growth in the economy. Projects established under the agreement aim to increase the number of pre-apprenticeship opportunities available and increase the number of better prepared individuals that have the option of taking up formal Australian apprenticeship training.
