Looking for a manufacturing apprentice?
As an employer, now is the perfect time to put on a new apprentice in
the mechanical and electrical fields. Did you know that under Fair Work
Australia, first and second year pay rates will increase for all new
apprentices from January 1, 2014? But, if you sign up with HVTC before
31 December 2013 and your apprentice rates won’t be affected.
In partnership with State Training Services, HVTC has launched an
exciting new campaign to encourage more people to take up an
apprenticeship in the manufacturing industry.
Why employ an apprentice or trainee?
Employing an apprentice or trainee is a smart and affordable way to boost your business. It’s a simple process that can all be easily arranged and managed through our Group Training Organisation (GTO).
What is a Group Training Organisation? (GTO)
A GTO employs apprentices and trainees and places them with Host Employers under an agreement to enable the apprentice or trainee to attain the on-the-job skills needed for their vocation.
A GTO is able to rotate an apprentice or trainee to other firms if work at the current organisation runs out or vocational competencies are not able to be delivered.
Our GTO remains the legal employer of the apprentice or trainee for the duration of their contract and is responsible for all associated employment conditions.
Providing an apprenticeship or traineeship opportunity as a Host Employer is a simple and cost-efficient way to access young talent for your business.
Benefits of using a GTO
We help you find the right person and then employ them on your behalf, making the whole process an affordable and simple option.
- All government requirements for hiring an apprentice or trainee.
- All recruitment processes.
- The off-the-job training through a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
You keep control - we refer the best candidates available and let you decide which candidate best suits your business needs.
No hassle hand back - if business is slow or things just don’t work out you can simply hand the trainee or apprentice back (usually with seven days notice).
No more paperwork - we maintain all employment records for you.
What is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO)?
An RTO is an organisation that specialises in providing specific vocational education and training and/or assessment services.
These include TAFE institutes, private providers, community providers, schools, higher education institutions, industry organisations and enterprises.
