MEGT (Australia) has announced it has maintained its status as a preferred provider for the Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (AASN) contract after the results for the new AASN contract were released.
The new AASN contract, which is due to launch nationally on 1 February 2020, sees MEGT retain its status as Australia's largest and only national Apprenticeship Network Provider. Under the new AASN contract, MEGT will maintain its current operations in all six states nationally.
The primary objective of the new AASN contract is to increase apprenticeship and traineeship completion rates significantly. MEGT will achieve this objective by expanding its Gateway and In-training Services as well as implementing a new and innovative service delivery approach to its apprenticeship support service delivery. The expansion and refinement of these service offerings enables MEGT to continue to support employers, apprentices and trainees throughout the apprenticeship or traineeship life cycle.
According to Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash, Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business said, “We are improving the support network to help get even more apprentices enrolled and trained up for rewarding careers and to help meet employers’ skills needs.”
