The Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (AASN) has been in place since 1 July 2015 supporting Australian Apprentices and employers to succeed in their apprenticeship arrangements. Following the recent evaluation of the AASN model of delivery, the Department of Education and Training is seeking your views on the delivery of Australian Apprenticeship Support Services.

Discussion Paper
