The former Government used to bang on all the time about apprenticeships. So I was interested to read:
A $250 million Government job scheme is in line for a shake-up after a report showing that fewer than one in 10 agriculture, forestry and fishing apprentices completes training within five years.
Fewer than one in ten???
Education Minister Anne Tolley is unhappy with the findings of a Ministry of Education report, Modern Apprentices Completion Analysis, and is seeking advice on the scheme’s future. The report reveals just one-third of all modern apprentices complete their training within five years.
Slightly better over all industries, but still a clear failure.
I’ve often noticed that Labour deems something sucessful based on how much money they spend on it. They see spending taxpayer money as inherently good, so the more money you spend, the more good you are doing.
Hopefully National will be more focused on actual outcomes.Tags: apprenticeships
