The Victorian government will bring back the formal recognition of trade apprenticeship by Trade Papers, for apprentices who have successfully completed their training over the last five years.

    Trade Papers were certificates issued on the completion of an apprenticeship, awarded to those who successfully completed their formal training to become a fully qualified tradesperson.

    The previous State Government, under Ted Baillieu, scrapped Trade Papers as part of their savage cuts to TAFE and training. Some TAFEs reduced the number of available courses, several campuses were closed, and fees were increased. This seriously affected the career choices for young Victorians.

    Since then, Victorians who have completed an apprenticeship only receive a VET qualification recognising their formal training, making it harder to get a job. An apprenticeship involved practical work experience as well as training. Industry, training providers and apprentices have all been calling for the return of Trade Papers.

    Because of the high demand across the state for skilled workers, the government is investing an additional $644 million to strengthen TAFE, address skills shortages and ensure all Victorians can access the training they need to get a good job.

    This investment includes $43.8 million to reintroduce Trade Papers, implement new independent assessments, update learning materials, and to create quality apprenticeships and traineeships for the modern economy.

    In addition, to make it easier to access training and pathways to an apprenticeship, the government is investing $172 million to make 30 priority TAFE courses and 20 pre-apprenticeship courses free from tuition.

    “Apprentices are the backbone of our training system and the future of our workforce – that’s why we’re giving them the recognition they deserve,” said Minister for Training and Skills Gayle Tierney.
