AusAppPathways is a new app that helps students at the beginning of their career research to explore the many apprenticeship and traineeship pathway options.
AusAppPathways is available for both Apple and Android devices.

Students can search for occupation and training descriptions that are suited to Australian School-based Apprenticeships and filter results by State and Territory.
The AusAppPathways app also provides information and helpful links on job hunting and career research as well as contact information for local Apprenticeship Network providers and a link to Group Training Organisation listings.

Career Interest Explorer
The Australian Apprenticeships and Traineeships Information Service has launched a new resource on the Australian Apprenticeships Pathways website.
The Career Interest Explorer aims to help students and jobseekers identify the strength of their interests across seven broad work types.
From the outcomes of the Explorer people can search for related information based on specific occupation ideas, or industry wide career information, all available on the Australian Apprenticeships Pathways website.
The resource can be used independently or it can be part of careers discussions with career advisers in schools and other service providers networks.
Students and jobseekers can watch employers talk about their approach to recruiting and interviewing apprentices in the new “Australian Apprenticeships Construction Pathways – Employer Stories” videos available on our "Australian Apprenticeships – My Gain" YouTube channel (www.mygain.com.au).
The attached brochure illustrates the key features of the AAT Info website.
The AAT Information Service will now be Tweeting when key information is uploaded to the websites - www.aatinfo.com.au and www.aapathways.com.au.
Tweets will provide a notice of information sessions, information on new resources and also updates to the Service's database of qualifications registered in each State and Territory.
Attached is a poster highlighting the essential content areas of the Australian Apprenticeships Pathways website. The resource aims to help prompt jobseekers and students to "self help" when researching potential Australian Apprenticeships directions.
The poster is ideal for display at job expos and in client contact areas of offices and schools. The document can be printed as a small A3 size poster or in A4 as a resource for populating information kits.
