Client:  Department of Innovation, Industry and Regional Development

This series of 3 reports researches pre-apprenticeships, with a focus on the Victorian building and construction sectors, and offers a timely evaluation of the effectiveness of pre-apprenticeships in light of the recent increase in Federal Government funding directed towards pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship training in the "Kickstart Apprenticeship" program. The final report consolidates findings from interviews with skills councils, trade unions, employer associations and Registered Training Organisations, and concludes with a summary of the key policy issues.
