About apprenticeships and traineeships
Apprenticeships and traineeships are jobs that combine paid work with structured training and lead to a nationally recognised qualification. Apprentices or trainees can be any age and can be a new or existing worker.
Apprenticeships last between 36 to 48 months and cover such trade areas as Building and Construction, Commercial Cookery, Automotive/Mechanics, Engineering, Manufacturing and many more.
Traineeships take between 12 and 24 months and include industries such as Business, Retail, Community Health, Childcare and Financial Services.
How we can help
As part of the Australian Apprenticeship Support Network, MEGT can assist you through each step of the process. MEGT act as the facilitator between the employer, the apprentice or trainee, the Registered Training Organisation and the State Training Authority.
Whether you are an employer or an apprentice, our local consultants and mentors can provide you with information and administrative support when an apprenticeship commences, ongoing contact throughout the apprenticeship and assistance with receiving any Government incentives that may be available to you.
As part of our new Australian Apprenticeship Support Network contract, MEGT now offers an apprenticeship and traineeship matching system called Gateway Services.
As an employer, you can access this free system to post vacancies online, or simply register with the site, allowing you to explore a database of eager and suitable apprentices and trainees who have been aptitude tested and perfectly matched to your on-the-job training opportunity.
As a job seeker, you can also access Gateway for free to apply for vacancies online, or simply register with the site, allowing you to explore a database of suitable roles and be seen by employers who have also registered.

From small businesses to large corporations, we believe the key to business success lies with your greatest asset – the people you employ. When you choose to hire an apprentice or trainee you are not only improving their future and your business, you are also supporting your local community.
