POSITIVE POLICY

Real Skills, Good Jobs

Labor won’t let Australians fall behind because there is a gap between the skills they have and the ones employers are looking for.

We will help more unemployed young people into apprenticeships by creating 10,000 new Apprentice Ready places and see retrenched workers gain formal recognition of their skills through 5,000 accelerated apprenticeships so they can find their next job.

We are backing apprenticeships because we believe every Australian should have the chance to gain real skills and a good job.

Together, the creation of these 15,000 places represents a $62.5 million investment in jobs and training for Australians who are struggling to get into work.
