Pre-Apprenticeships in Three Key Trades. A National Vocational Education and Training Research and Evaluation Program Report
Dumbrell, Tom; Smith, Erica
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
This report looks at whether pre-apprenticeships increase the potential supply of tradespeople, with a special focus on electrotechnology, automotive and engineering students. It found that pre-apprenticeships have been used in Australia for many years and are widely regarded as a valuable strategy for increasing the supply and quality of potential apprentices. Pre-apprenticeships are favoured by employers because they weed out unsuitable candidates and improve retention, while apprentices see them as a useful way of gaining experience in the trade. (Contains 4 footnotes, 2 figures, and 6 tables.) [This work has been produced with funding provided through the Australian Department of Education, Science and Training.
