Employers can reduce employment risks when employing apprentices and trainees through a labour on-hire type mechanism with MEGT Group Training.

In the 1980's many employers told the Australian government they needed to employ apprentices but were not sure they had enough work to sustain them for the full period of a four year apprenticeship. If there wasn't enough work for an apprentice to do, they would have to let the apprentice go. And that meant the apprentice could not complete their qualification. To solve the problem, the Australian government put in place an amazingly innovative scheme called Group Training whereby the Group Training Organisation became the employer, and placed the apprentice with one or a variety of 'host' employers.

This scheme became a solid safety net for both the employer and the apprentice and a few years later, was extended to include traineeships.

The MEGT employs Australian Apprentices (apprentices and trainees) and hires or leases them out to different businesses on a short or long-term basis anywhere in Australia.

Because we take on the contractual and administrative responsibilities of the employer (the payment of wages and superannuation for example), and also participate in the recruitment of Australian Apprentices, the employer burden rests with us.

We handle the payroll, ensure the apprentice or trainee is work-ready, provide pastoral care and mentoring, organise their off-the-job training - reducing the employment risks involved with new staff.

MEGT Recruitment and Management Service also labour hires fully qualified staff.          Find out more about apprentice recruitment, payroll, mentoring and management
