Formatted abstract
Fifty percent of youth entrants to apprenticeships in Australia fail to complete their course producing costs to, employers, the trainees themselves and society in general. This study uses data from the Direct Entry Level Training Administration for a duration analysis of this high attrition rate. We find those most likely to survive apprenticeship training will be males who have completed high school prior to training, work with a single employer, undertake train within the Government system and avoid occupations such as food trades and hairdressing.
