Apprenticeship training and productivity growth: a case study of the Australian construction industry

W Chancellor and Malcolm Abbott ()

Australian Bulletin of Labour, 2015, vol. 41, issue 1, 1-15

Abstract: This article explores the effect of apprenticeship training on productivity in the Australian construction industry. Using state-level data, the correlation between the level of training and productivity is analysed. The results are then used to build on anecdotal evidence to suggest a firm, pre-existing, positive relationship between training and productivity. In addition, the level of apprenticeship training in Australia is related to the composition and general characteristics of the Australian construction industry.
