The OECD-ILO publish Miles Morgan’s case study exploring innovations in business-education partnerships in apprenticeship programmes

We’re very excited to have been one of only 9 organisations selected globally by the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the United Nation’s International Labour Organization (ILO) to write a chapter for a recently released publication Engaging Employers in Apprenticeship Opportunities.

Our case study, Innovative Approaches to Attracting and Retaining Apprentices in Western Australia (Chapter 5), focuses on the approach being taken by Australian construction company, the ABN Group, to attract and retain high calibre apprentices and support them on the journey to become small business owners in their own right.

Youth employment and the future of work are key areas of interest for Miles Morgan. Our case study highlighted how the ABN Group has radically changed its approach to supporting mostly young people through on-the-job learning via its apprenticeship program, and the results speak for themselves. For example, ABN reported a 71% completion rate compared with the national completion rate of 42% (and a Western Australian completion rate of 52%) for the construction industry over a comparable period.

The case study showcases the innovative approach the ABN Group has taken, the results they’ve achieved and how transferable their approach is to other companies, industry sectors and countries.

We received outstanding support from the ABN Group’s Managing Director, Dale Alcock, and Group Training Organisation Manager, Loris Moriconi, in preparing the case study.  They are clearly committed to building a workplace-based education and training service that works for young people and also delivers great outcomes for the company and the industry.

The full report Engaging Employers in Apprenticeship Opportunities is available on the OECD website.
