The NAEN 2022 Conference comes at a critical time for the group training sector and for all those with an interest in the way we develop the skills and the jobs of the future.

With the theme, ‘Adaptation and Opportunity’ the conference reflects the strength and resilience that has been a hallmark of the apprenticeship sector, at the same time as the apprenticeship model is being expanded to new and emerging fields.

As well as the traditional trades where apprenticeships have a long record of achievement, there is heightened interest in areas such as aged care, cyber security, infrastructure, and higher-level apprenticeships and traineeships.

The conference will bring together experts from around Australia, all sharing their knowledge and experience. They will examine what is working well in serving our country’s skills development, as well as new areas that represent the apprenticeships of the future.
