MEGT successful in securing Australian Apprenticeship Mentoring funding!
19/03/12
MEGT Australian Apprenticeships Centre has been successful in securing Federal Government funding to provide support to Australian Apprentices through the Australian Apprenticeship Mentoring Package.

 
Under the Mentoring Program MEGT will provide targeted mentoring and support to apprentices 16 to 19 years of age who are undertaking occupations defined on the National Skills Needs List (predominantly traditional trade apprenticeships) employed in organisations with less than 50 employees.

 
Providing additional support to this cohort will assist in increasing retention rates, particularly in the first year of a young person’s apprenticeship, and in turn will have a positive impact on completion rates.

 
This exciting new initiative, the Australian Apprenticeships Mentoring Package, is in addition to the free services MEGT already provides to Australian Apprentices and employers through Australian Apprenticeships Support Services.
