Improving Indigenous participation in apprenticeships in Australia

07-Apr-2014 Apprenticeships and traineeships have long been acknowledged as an effective career pathway as they give individuals the opportunity to learn “on the job”.

Improving Indigenous participation in apprenticeships and traineeships across Australia is the focus of GTA’s national Indigenous Employment Strategy.

The strategy was developed and launched by Group Training Australia (GTA) in 2008 in an effort to build on the Indigenous employment outcomes being achieved by group training organisations (GTOs).

The goals of the strategy are to:
1. Promote collaboration within the group training network to share experiences and resources
2. Lobby decision makers to influence Indigenous Employment policy and programmes
3. Support the network in maximising employment outcomes for Indigenous people
4. Increase the capacity of group training to assist Indigenous people

The strategy has helped boost Indigenous participation in apprenticeships in Australia and as of the September quarter in 2013, 18.5 per cent of all Indigenous apprentices and trainees in Australia were employed through group training arrangements.
