Support for apprentices
Oz Help provides free and confidential support services to apprentices enrolled at Tas TAFE.
All apprentices receive an in-depth presentation from Oz Help within their first weeks of attending classes. But, like most teenagers, they often feel 10 feet tall and bullet-proof at the time of the presentation. They most likely have not experienced some of life's challenges yet such as financial stress, relationship breakdown, the effects of drugs and alcohol abuse, gambling, dealing with grief and loss, depression, thoughts of self-harm and suicide.
As their employer, it's important that you are aware of Oz Help and the support network that is in place for your apprentice. Encouraging and reminding your apprentice to contact Oz Help early can make the difference.
