AP­PREN­TICES

who swap em­ploy­ers when con­sid­er­ing drop­ping out of their train­ing have a higher rate of com­plet­ing their ap­pren­tice­ship, new data shows.

Na­tional Cen­tre for Vo­ca­tional Ed­u­ca­tion Re­search fig­ures show ap­pren­tice com­ple­tion rates are higher when the data also counts recom­mence­ments or em­ployer swap­ping.

About one-quar­ter of trade ap­pren­tices leave their ini­tial em­ployer then restart their train­ing with an­other.

Over­all, 56.6 per cent of ap­pren­tices who leave their train­ing but restart else­where fin­ish their ap­pren­tice­ship, 10 per cent higher than those who do not move to a new em­ployer.

Food-trades ap­pren­tices are the least likely to com­plete their train­ing while elec­trotech­nol­ogy and telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions trades work­ers are the most likely.
