Providing social support for apprentices: good practice guide

2 Aug 2016

Formal mentoring is an important aspect of apprenticeships; however, it is also informal mentoring — practices that are difficult to formally nurture — that plays a significant and effective role in supporting the overall wellbeing of an apprentice. This good practice guide is designed to help employers think about and provide work-based social support structures that may contribute to the health and wellbeing of young apprentices as they transition to the world of work.

This guide is based on the report Beyond mentoring: social structures of support for young Australian carpentry apprentices by John Buchanan, Catherine Raffaele, Nick Glozier and Aran Kanagaratnam from the University of Sydney.
