Transitioning VET students to Apprenticeships – A Skilling South Australia Project


A Skilling South Australia project supported by the Government of South Australia

The National Partnership on the Skilling Australians Fund aims to improve employment outcomes by supporting Australians to:

  • get the skills and training needed for jobs in demand through apprenticeship pathways
  • meet the growing need for skilled workers across a range of critical industries.

The Government of South Australia has signed the Commonwealth Government’s National Partnership on the Skilling Australians Fund.

This National Partnership brings South Australia, New South Wales, Western Australia, Tasmania, the Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory together to achieve a shared goal of improving Australia’s training system and increasing the number of apprenticeship and traineeship commencements across the country.

The South Australian Government is committed to supporting an additional 20,800 apprentices and trainees over four years through the Skilling South Australia initiative, ensuring that these opportunities are attractive to jobseekers, business and industry, and meet the state’s skills needs now and in the future. Skilling South Australia is helping more people get skills and qualifications to build lasting careers and meet the needs of industry.

Many of the fastest growing jobs in South Australia will require technical skills that can be gained through vocational education and training (VET), traineeships and apprenticeships. These are jobs in:

  • defence and shipbuilding
  • healthcare and community services
  • food, wine and agribusiness
  • high-tech industries like cyber security, digital and ICT.
