A future that’s yours

Through Australian Apprenticeship Support Services, we are dedicated to supporting First Nations apprentices throughout their apprenticeship.

We are committed to supporting you on a promising and rewarding new career path that is well within your reach.

Whether it’s tailored mentoring, career guidance, learning about financial support and incentives, or having easy and ongoing access to a wide range of resources, we will ensure that you feel confident and valued as you complete your apprenticeship.

With our guidance and support, you can be assured that you are well on your way to a career and future you can be proud of.

How we will support you throughout your apprenticeship

We’re here to guide you through everything, from the beginning to the end of your apprenticeship.

A dedicated Bamara Apprenticeship Consultant will check in with you regularly (online or face-to-face) to discuss your progress, and work through any challenges and additional support you may need.

They will be your main point of contact, and will be there for you every step of the way.

We will help you with:

  • Accessing government financial payments, benefits, and support to assist with the everyday costs of completing an apprenticeship.
  • Checking in with you at least seven times on your journey, more if you need it.
  • Being there for you whenever you need to have a yarn about your apprenticeship journey and any additional assistance you need along the way.
  • Any administration support and paperwork so you can focus on completing your apprenticeship.
  • Providing Mentoring and Personal Support services from a First Nations Mentor for up to 12 months, if you need it.

First Nations Mentors who have your back, every step of the way

We offer a holistic 12 month Mentoring and Personal Support services for First Nations apprentices and their employers, if needed.

Our First Nations Mentors have a proven track record of empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and individuals.

With decades of experience in mentoring First Nations people across Australia, we have consistently demonstrated our commitment to making a positive impact.

We’ll be there to have a yarn whenever you need, work through any issues you may have, and celebrate your achievements along the way.
