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.

Miles Morgan awarded Mental Health Commission tender

We’re off to a great start this New Year, having been won a tender with the WA Mental Health Commission (MHC).  Miles Morgan have been engaged by the Mental Health Commission to conduct the 2017 Australian School Student Alcohol and Drug (ASSAD) Survey (WA component)  in high schools across Western Australia.

The Australian Secondary Students’ Alcohol and Drug (ASSAD) survey provides a snapshot of alcohol, tobacco and other drug use among secondary school students aged 12 to 17 years (grade 7 to 12). The survey has been conducted every three years since 1984 and the previous survey was conducted in 2011. (Mental Health Commission)

We look forward to working with the Mental Health Commission on this project, and with all the schools that will be surveyed.
