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.
