Australian Apprenticeships Support Network

Australian Apprenticeships Support Network (AASN) are also known as Apprenticeship Network Providers (ANP). ANPs are contracted by the Australian Government to provide free support services to apprentices, trainees and employers.

ANPs will provide advice and support services tailored to the needs of employers and apprentices throughout the apprenticeship lifecycle, from pre-commencement to completion, through:

  • Universal services for all employers and apprentices, providing essential administrative support, payment processing and regular contact
  • Targeted services for employers and individuals assessed as needing additional support to complete the apprenticeship

Pre-commencement services include:

  • Screening
  • Testing and
  • Job-matching

Targeted in-training support services including mentoring, will help apprentices and employers at-risk of not completing the apprenticeship or traineeship to work through issues and difficulties.

Apprenticeship Network Providers can also provide assistance to individuals who may be unsuited to an apprenticeship to identify alternative training pathways.
