The number of apprentices and trainees in jobs across NSW increased by 11 percent in the year to December 2021, off the back of the NSW Government’s unprecedented investment in fee-free training.

A report by the National Centre for Vocational Education and Research shows that NSW continues to lead the nation, with more apprentices and trainees than any other state or territory.

There were 106,445 apprentices and trainees in training at the end of 2021, with both commencements and completions up overall on the year before.

Women undertaking apprenticeships and traineeships in NSW continues to surge, with a 21 percent increase in 2021.

More opportunities for vocational education and employment pathways for young people are being significantly expanded through NSW Government programs such as JobTrainer, Careers NSW, the Educational Pathways Program as well as reforms to the Higher School Certificate and the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank.

Business NSW CEO, Daniel Hunter welcomed the Government’s ongoing commitment to a strong pipeline of skilled workers in NSW.

“Lifting the number of young people in apprenticeships, enhancing vocational education and training options for those looking to upskill or explore another career is just what the doctor ordered to address the state’s skill shortage,” he said.

“Helping someone get a job and get skilled is not just great for business and the economy, but is a positive step for young people and their families.”
