An experienced customer service professional, Jeff has been in the Vocational Training Industry with Apprenticeship Support Australia for 8 years. Previously based in Sydney, he has been based in Newcastle for over 2 years managing a team of consultants spread from the Central Coast to the QLD border. Jeff has seen firsthand the difficulty employers have in recruiting and retaining staff and knows how important Apprentices and Trainees are to counter a growing skills shortage in our communities.

Powered by Australian Business Apprenticeships Centre in NSW, ACT and QLD, Apprenticeship Support Australia combines the 60 years of collective experience of Australian Business Apprenticeships Centre in NSW and ACT, VECCI Apprenticeships Services in Victoria and the Apprenticeships Centres of Business SA and CCI Western Australia, to deliver skills development advice and solutions to businesses and job-seekers across Australia.

Here is a brief outline of what I will be presenting:

  • Apprenticeship Support Australia, about us
  • Apprenticeships and Traineeships, state and federal government funding
  • Skillsroad – a resource for employers, apprentices, jobseekers, parents, teachers and careers advisors
