Apprenticeship Adviser

What is the Apprenticeship Adviser Service?

The Apprenticeship Adviser project provides a direct support service targeted at small business owners, encouraging them to employ apprentices and trainees. The TCCI is committed to supporting Tasmanian businesses to engage with the vocational education and training sector in order to develop and sustain a quality, skilled workforce.

The TCCI has identified the key areas in which small business requires additional support in order to engage with the VET system, particularly in relation to employing apprentices and trainees.
This project offers a “one stop shop” service to employers, allowing employers to select the support services they require in order to identify opportunities to employ apprentices and trainees. Each employer and their apprentice or trainee will be provided with up to 12 months of mentoring to support retention and completion of qualifications.
