What is Industry Specialist Mentoring for Australian Apprentices?

The Australian Government has contracted Apprenticeships Are Us to provide Industry Specialist Mentoring for Australian Apprentices (ISMAA) in the automotive industry across New South Wales and Victoria.


Apprenticeships Are Us offers Australian Apprentices intensive support throughout the first two years of an Australian Apprenticeship. Our Mentors are trade qualified and experienced automotive industry professionals who support apprentices through:

  • expert advice on career options, pathways, and skills development requirements within the automotive industry
  • individualised technical, career and pathway advice relevant to the changing nature of work within the industry and personal areas of interest
  • support with technical skills training
  • referral to other forms of support should you be facing personal issues that are causing or likely to cause barriers to completion of training
  • support and advice to adapt to the demands of automotive industry workplaces

The ISMAA program complements the in-training support assistance provided by your Australian Apprenticeship Support Network provider.

How will Industry Specialist Mentoring benefit me? Every apprentice is different. That’s why the Mentor develops an Individual Mentoring Plan (IMP) tailored to each individual apprentice. IMPs focus on apprentice challenges and opportunities. Together with the Mentor, apprentices develop strategies and goals to address challenges and take advantage of opportunities.
