GOVERNMENT COMMITTED TO TRAINING AND APPRENTICESHIPS (FED)

Data released today by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) underscores the importance of the Australian Government’s significant reforms to support for apprentices and their employers. The Apprentices and trainees 2014 December quarter report shows that the decline in the number of people in training that started under Labor in 2012, has continued, although the rate of decline has slowed. Assistant Minister for Education and Training, Senator Simon Birmingham, said the Government was investing around $6 billion this year to support people undertaking vocational education and training (VET), including more than 300,000 apprentices.    Media – 27 May 2015
