From 1 July 2015, the Commonwealth Government’s Australian Apprenticeship Network (AASN) will replace the current Commonwealth funded Australian Apprenticeship Centres (AACs) and will deliver a broader suite of services with a stronger focus on apprentice recruitment and job-matching.
The AASN providers will also offer advice and mentoring support services for employers and apprentices throughout the course of the apprenticeship. To avoid duplicating the AASN services, the State Government will focus on fulfilling the statutory functions of administration and regulation and the ApprentiCentre will be renamed the Department of Training and Workforce Development Apprenticeship Office.
The ApprentiCentre website will be decommissioned on 30 June 2015 and the following details will be effective from 1 July 2015:
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Website: http://www.dtwd.wa.gov.au/apprenticeshipoffice
Please note that the contact number and physical address details of the Apprenticeship Office will remain unchanged.
As the new AASN services will offer face to face support for apprentices and employers in all regions across WA, the eight regional ApprentiCentre Offices will close as of 1 July 2015.
The Australian Apprenticeships Support Network (AASN) provider’s that will replace the national network of Australian Apprenticeships Centres has been announced by the Australian Government.
