Group Training Welcomes National Skills Summit

10-Feb-2017
Australia’s group training peak body, the National Apprentice Employment Network (NAEN), welcomed the Federal Opposition’s plan for a National Skills Summit.
 
The National Executive Officer of NAEN Ms Lauren Tiltman said a national summit had the potential to give greater focus to skills development through apprenticeships and traineeships.
 
“A national discussion will help to focus attention on the need for improved apprentice commencements and completions while ensuring that the skills being developed meet the needs of industry,” Ms Tiltman said.
 
“While greater national attention on the role of skills development is important, we need to ensure it is not just a talk fest.
 
“The group training network would welcome the opportunity to play its part in an initiative that has the capacity to raise the status of apprenticeships and traineeships and ensure that the investment in skilling is rewarded with real employment outcomes.” 
 
NAEN is the largest network employer of apprentices and trainees with some 25,000 in work around Australia, while it represents around 100 group training organisations nationally.
 
The model of group training was created in Australia over 30 years ago as partnership with businesses to enable it to engage apprentices and trainees easily and with minimal risk. 
 
It enables apprentices and trainees to be rotated across host businesses when, for example, work has finished with one host or new skills are needed by the apprentice or trainee.
 
Ms Tiltman said that the model of group training has proven effective in delivering training, jobs and careers, as well as the mentoring and support that underpins a successful apprenticeship.
