A recent NCVER report shows clear differences in the profile of group training organisations (GTO) apprentices compared with direct employer apprentices.
Group training organisations’ focus on providing pastoral care and ongoing support for apprentices and trainees has a positive effect on completions, according to a new report. Findings also show that apprentice and trainee completion rates depend on a range of other attributes including employer size and apprentice demographics.
“Maximising apprenticeship completion rates has been a longstanding concern for governments because they represent the return on significant government investment in training,” said Simon Walker, Managing Director, NCVER.
“Employing apprentices with group training organisations is one means of doing this, as they can provide the additional care and ongoing support required by some apprentices to successfully complete their training contract.”
