In 2001, some 8,715 apprentices and trainees commenced their training. Nearly half (46%) of commencements were in the Southern region of Tasmania and about a quarter in each of the North (27%) and North West (27%) regions.

Over a third of the commencements were for the intermediate clerical, sales and service workers occupational group. The occupational group with the lowest level of commencements were the groups of managers and administrators and professionals. Most of these commencements relate to work in primary industry.
