Breaking: Government announces support for Careers Australia

by L&D26 May 2017
Federal Education and Training Minister Simon Birmingham has announced that parts of Careers Australia may be transferred to other training providers so services can continue now the company has entered voluntary administration.
Earlier today, L&D Professional reported on the administration of Careers Australia.
Apprentices were apparently told to stop work immediately and employees were stood down.
Senator Birmingham told reporters that the education and training provider was protected through TAFE Directors Australia.
"It's important to draw the distinction that at present they've entered into voluntary administration," he told reporters in Sydney on Friday.
The Senator suggested that different parts of the organisation might continue to operate in the future.
"It is possible that some of them could be picked up by other training providers of repute and continue to provide training services around the country," Senator Birmingham said.
It is unclear at the time of publication how these announcements will affect employers who have apprentices and employees under Careers Australia schemes.
