GTAV has released its 2014 budget statement.
The budget statement highlights 4 main recommendations that we believe would increase the participation and overall success of apprenticeships in Victoria.
- Proposed new school based program to support 10,000 student transitions into meaningful employment
- Victorian (and Federal government) long term support for JGTP Funding
- Future group training government funding structure
- Funding for training should be closely linked to an employment outcome regardless of the industry
These recommendations will form the platform of our focus in 2014 as we lead up to the Victorian Election.
GTAV plan to host further events in the first part of 2014 to reinforce the recommendations.
Victorian Ministers, Government Departments, industry stakeholders and members will have received a copy in the mail.
