Hotel Grand Chancellor, 1 Davey St, Hobart, Tasmania, 7000, Australia.

As Australia emerges from the COVID recession, the country’s apprenticeship and training system is undergoing extraordinary change.

 

The NAEN 2021 Conference comes at a critical time for the group training sector and for all those with an interest in the way we develop the skills and the jobs of the future.  

 

With the theme, 'Adaptation and Opportunity’ the conference reflects the strength and resilience that has been a hallmark of the apprenticeship sector, at the same time as the apprenticeship model is being expanded to new and emerging fields.

 

As well as the traditional trades where apprenticeships have a long record of achievement, there is heightened interest in areas such as aged care, cyber security, infrastructure, and higher-level apprenticeships and traineeships.

 

The conference will bring together experts from around Australia, all sharing their knowledge and experience. They will examine what is working well in serving our country’s skills development, as well as new areas that represent the apprenticeships of the future.

 

Background

The National Apprentice Employment Network (NAEN) Conference is the key biannual event for the GTO network and for the many government agencies, public and private training providers, employment programs, and industry professionals that lead the way in apprentice and trainee employment across the country. The 2019 Conference was held on the Gold Coast in Queensland, and this year we anticipate strong attendance in Hobart, Tasmania from:

 

·      CEOs, Managers and field officers of group training organisations

·      Chairs and Directors of the Boards of GTOs

·      State, territory and Commonwealth government representatives

·      Registered Training Organisations

·      Employer and industry organisations

 

The NAEN 2021 Conference offers an opportunity to build relationships with the apprentice employment network and key stakeholders across the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector. The marketing potential starts from the time you sign up and continues well beyond the event itself.

National Apprentice Employment Network (NAEN)

https://naen.com.au

The National Apprentice Employment Network (NAEN) is Australia’s largest employer network of apprentices and trainees. The employer network is unique, as it represents the practice of Group Training under which Group Training Organisations (GTOs) directly employ apprentices and trainees and place them with host businesses.  Across metropolitan, rural, regional and remote Australia, the network employs some 25,000 apprentices and trainees in a diverse range of industries. First established during the 1980s, NAEN’s member businesses, generally known as GTOs, have employed approximately one million apprentices. No other organisation has employed more apprentices in Australia.  Over four decades, NAEN has supported their member GTOs as they deliver critical workforce development support and a practical HR function to tens of thousands of largely micro, small and medium sized businesses that either do not have the knowledge or infrastructure to support apprentices and trainees without this helping hand and expertise. While some GTOs specialise in particular industries, such as the traditional trades or hospitality, others cater to entire regions and cover a range of industries.  GTOs have come to occupy a pivotal role in many communities through their links with enterprises, training providers and schools, as well as in Indigenous and remote communities where they play at.
