An Investigation of ACCI's User Choice Proposals. Working Paper 47

Information from the Australian National Training Authority (ANTA) indicates that training within New Apprenticeships is more flexible than traditional apprenticeships and traineeships. The ability of employers and employees to select a training provider of their choice, providing that it is registered in their state or territory, is known as "User Choice." Results of a survey undertaken by the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) in 2001 indicated very high levels of support for User Choice, but also indicated that User Choice was not always meeting expectations. As a result of the survey, ACCI developed proposals designed to strengthen User Choice. The project reported in this paper investigated these proposals with two main aims: (2) To explore the gap between the User Choice arrangements proposed by ACCI and User Choice as it is currently practiced; and (2) To seek the views of the States and Territories about ACCI's proposals, including any potential issues or problems that might arise in implementing them.
