New service provides support for apprentices
Training provider BUSY at Work celebrated the launch of its service in the Pilbara as the new Australian Apprenticeship Support Network provider.
The AASN replaced the Australian Apprenticeships Centres on July 1 to make it easier for employers to recruit, train and retain apprentices and trainees.
BUSY At Work chief executive Paul Miles said after more than 35 years of growing Australian Apprenticeships in Queensland, the organisation was looking forward to expanding its role into the Pilbara.
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with CoAct in supporting apprentices, trainees, employers and communities throughout Western Australia with the new network.” he said.
“Our local team, some of whom have been in the Pilbara for over 30 years, are looking forward to delivering tailored advice and support to employers, industry stakeholders, and Australian apprentices.”
Mr Miles said BUSY at Work’s objective was to restructure the services and improve the completion rates of local apprentices and trainees by matching the best person to the right job from the start.
“Reducing duplication and complexity in the apprenticeship and traineeship system will allow more effective interaction with employers, apprentices, trainees and other stakeholders,” he said.
“With our strategic partnerships in place, we are now positioned to deliver apprenticeships nationally.”
The BUSY at Work office is located at the Pilbara Institute Karratha Campus, in Block 900.
