Final Report of the Expert Panel, Jan 2011

On 16 July 2010, the Government appointed the Apprenticeships for the 21st Century Expert Panel to advise the Government on reform options for the Australian Apprenticeships system. 

The Australian Apprenticeships system has a long history in Australia as an effective vehicle for employment based learning. It has been the basis of skill formation for many years and we believe this will continue for many years to come. Our findings show that although the Australian Apprenticeships system is not fundamentally broken, there are areas where the system should be reformed to allow it to meet the skills needs of the 21st century economy.
