Increasing university participation: the impact on apprentices

Presented by Joanne Waugh, NCVER, with panelists Peta Skujins, Adrienne Nieuwenhuis, Ben Bardon, and Dianne Dayhew on Wednesday 13 March 2024.

The impact of increasing university participation on the characteristics of apprentices report examines whether the characteristics of young people undertaking apprenticeships and university have changed in response to the demand driven system (DDS) of education and training or other policy, economic and social conditions in the last twenty years. The research highlights the largely unchanged profile of young apprentices and presents considerations for the Australian VET system when seeking to promote apprenticeships to school leavers.

This webinar will briefly present the findings from that research and then move to a discussion of its implications with a panel of apprenticeship and youth pathways experts.

The panel will consider how university and vocational education policies interact, what can be done to boost the attractiveness of apprenticeships and traineeships to school leavers, and other related topics.
