Apprentice Connect Provider

Apprenticeships Northern Territory is an Apprentice Connect Provider delivering the Australian Apprenticeship Support Services in the NT. We operate with the goal of improving apprenticeship completion and satisfaction rates through the provision of integrated, targeted mentoring support to apprentices and employers prior to commencement and while they are undertaking their Australian Apprenticeship. 

Apprenticeships Northern Territory is jointly funded by the Australian Government - Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (DEWR) and the Northern Territory Government - Department of Industry, Tourism and Trade (DITT) to provide both administrative and regulatory functions on their behalf.

Apprenticeships Northern Territory support Vocational, Education and Training (VET) pathways through these services and provide valuable support to current and prospective, Australian Apprentices and employers. If you are looking to enter the VET sector or have any questions around putting on an apprentice or trainee, come see us!

Apprenticeships NT provides the following free services to apprentices and trainees and employers in the Northern Territory under the Australian Government’s Australian Apprenticeship Support Services:

  • Apprentice Connect Provider: We connect potential apprentices and employers, and arranging connections with Group Training Organisations and Registered Training Organisations.
  • Assessment Services: This service is for potential apprentices and employers to determine readiness and ability to undertake an apprenticeship, identifying and recommending appropriate tailored supports where needed.
  • Tailored Mentoring and Personal Support Services:  This service is for apprentices in key client groups, employers who require support and other apprentices who may require support to remain in their apprenticeship. For apprentices, this may include pastoral care, career guidance and advice and connections to peer support networks. Employers may be supported through training and mentoring to improve their capacity to support apprentices through training in mental health, healthy workplace relationships, diversity and inclusion.
  • Engagement and Technical Support Services: We assist with the apprenticeship sign-up process and development of the Training Contract. Providers also support for apprentices and employers to claim payments.
