Also presented in this publication is information on employers’ use and satisfaction with unaccredited training, and recruitment difficulties experienced in the last 12 months. The figures in this publication are derived from the Survey of Employers’ Use and Views of the VET System. A total of 7007 interviews were conducted with Australian employers between February and June 2019 and the results relate to employers’ training experiences in the 12 months preceding their interview. Note for the purposes of this publication, nationally recognised training excludes training that was part of an apprenticeship or traineeship as employers’ use and views of apprentices and trainees is reported separately Availability: (1)

Understanding the psychological contract in apprenticeships and traineeships to improve retention /

by Smith, Erica | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Walker, Arlene | Kemmis, Ros Brennan.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: This research examines the 'psychological contract' or the unwritten expectations of employers and employees in an employment relationship. The particular aim of this study was to discover whether mismatched expectations have any effect on retention in apprenticeships and traineeships. Overall, there was a very high level of agreement on the obligations of the two major parties and so mismatched expectations turn out not to be the explanation for high attrition rates. But paying greater attention to the areas perceived as deficient, such as employers providing specific time for training, fair treatment and resources to do the job, may be a means of improving retention.Availability: (1)
