(Question No. 214)

Mr Zappia asked the Minister for Industry, in writing, on 14 July 2014:

How many apprentices completed their apprenticeship in 2013-14, and of those, how many secured work within their skill set on completion?

Mr Ian Macfarlane: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

Australian Apprentice completions in 2013-14

The National Centre for Vocational Education Research collects data on Australian Apprentice completions, which is made publicly available at

Completions data is only currently available for the first half of the 2013-2014 financial years. Data for all 2013-14 apprentice completions will become available in December 2014.

Australian Apprentice destination data

Destination data for Apprentice graduates is also collected by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research and reported annually in their publication Student Outcomes.

Student Outcomes 2013 has recently been released and represents the outcomes for 75,000 students studying in the VET system, including Australian Apprentices, during 2012. It is also available from the NCVER website listed above.
