Apprenticeship Support Officer Program

Apprenticeship Support Officers (ASOs) help apprentices – and employers – get the most out of the apprenticeship system. They’re part of a Victorian Government initiative to keep more apprentices in jobs and help more people complete their training.

Apprenticeship Support Officers are located across Victoria and offer a free and confidential support and advice service. This means apprentices and employers can receive help with the workplace, training or personal issues that often affect apprenticeships.

There are 29 ASOs working out of 13 sites across the state, providing a local service in Melbourne and in regional Victoria.  

To connect with an Apprenticeship Support Officer, call the ASO Hotline on 1300 311 820, or email
