Dr Southcott asked the Minister for Education, in writing, on 2 December 2008:

In respect of the Productivity Places Program: to date, (a) which courses on offer provide skills for traditional apprenticeships; and (b) of the students who have undertaken training for these qualifications under the program, how many students were also apprentices.


Ms Gillard (Minister for Education, Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations and Minister for Social Inclusion) —The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

All traditional trades are available under the Productivity Places Program. Western Australia has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to deliver the Productivity Places Program in 2008, and is providing training to apprentices, with over 700 currently in training.
