Pilbara News - - Education - Court­ney Fowler

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.
