Industry Specialist Mentoring for Australian Apprentices (ISMAA)

Give Your Apprentice Extra Support with NECA’s ISMAA Program

As you may or may not be aware, NECA has been contracted by the Commonwealth Department of Education and Training to deliver Mentoring Services under the Industry Specialist Mentoring for Australian Apprentices (ISMAA) program.

The aim of the Industry Specialist Mentoring service is to increase the retention rates of Apprentices in the first two years of training and, as a result, improve completion rates and increase the supply of skilled workers in the industry sector.

The NECA Mentoring Program includes:

  • developing relationships with apprentices
  • personalised meetings
  • keeping apprentices informed about opportunities relating to their apprenticeship
  • liaison with registered training organisations regarding training
  • providing support and advice
  • being available to talk to apprentices and trainees about any issues they are having.


Our SA and NT Apprentice Mentor is Rob Anderson, who brings extensive experience in the electrical industry, having worked for ETSA, The Office of the Technical Regulator, Service Stream, and of course a few years at NECA under our previous Managing Apprentice Progression (MAP) Program.

If you have a first or second year Apprentice that you would like to enrol in the program, contact us today.
