DRIVERS & IMPEDIMENTS
CLIENT: Construction & Property Services Industry Skills Council, and Department of Education,

This national project was designed to identify the drivers and critical impediments relating to the uptake of Australian Apprenticeships in plumbing and related services. The primary focus for this report was on the experience and perceptions of current plumbing apprentices. Whilst this may not always highlight some of the structural impediments, it does provide a 'customer centred' perspective that highlights issues that are most pertinent to those considering a plumbing apprenticeship.
Surveys were conducted with current plumbing apprentices, employers and plumbing instructors across Australia and New Zealand. This Project was funded under the Australian Government's Industry Training Strategies Programme, administered by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.
