Australian Apprenticeship Support Network is made up of Apprenticeship Network Providers contracted by the Australian Government. The Apprenticeship Network Providers offer a free service to industry, employers, apprentices and trainees to assist them with the sign-up, administration and management of apprenticeships and traineeships.
MEGT is an appointed Apprenticeship Network Provider acting as your local expert in apprenticeship servicing and support. MEGT provides a free Australia-wide service using locally based MEGT personnel, with local knowledge.
As an Apprenticeship Network Provider MEGT has a guarantee of service:
- The advice we provide will be accurate and reliable,
- We will keep up-to-date with detailed knowledge of federal and state requirements,
- We will be prompt in our response to customer enquiries and needs, and
- We will actively support and promote the opportunities provided to apprentices through the Australian Apprenticeship Support Network programme
MEGT – Your Local Apprenticeship Network Provider
As part of the new Government changes, new services will be delivered, with the level of service to employers and apprentices expanding from one to two levels:
- Universal Services
Universal services are those services previously provided to all employers, apprentices and trainees under the Australian Apprenticeships Support Services arrangements, and will continue to be provided, including:
- Marketing, information and advice,
- Sign up and assessing eligibility for the Australian Government incentives and personal benefits, and
- Client Progress contacts and claims processing.
The Australian Apprenticeships Programme provides a range of incentives to assist and encourage employers to take on and retain apprentices and trainees and assist apprentices during their apprenticeship. Payment of incentives is subject to employers and their apprentices and trainees meeting the eligibility criteria.
- Targeted Services
These are the new services available to people who have been identified in consultation with MEGT as requiring additional support. The services support employers, apprentices and trainees who need a helping hand to complete their apprenticeship.
The first of these services, referred to as Gateway, will be provided prior to the apprenticeship and remainder during the course of the apprenticeship (In-training support).
To see if you are eligible to avail this service, contact your Local MEGT Apprenticeship Network Provider.
Australian Apprenticeships Centres are now Australian Apprenticeship Support Network locations.
