Key messages from this study are: (1) Pre-apprenticeships lead to only a modest increase in satisfaction with job-related aspects of apprenticeships (but not off-the-job training aspects); (2) Pre-apprenticeships increase the likelihood of completion for apprentices in the construction, food and electro-technology trades and those with a Year 10 or Year 12 level of education; (3) Pre-apprenticeships reduce the likelihood of completing an apprenticeship for hairdressers and apprentices in the automotive and engineering trades and for those people who already have a certificate III or higher qualification.
