We make apprenticeships easy

Whether you’ve chosen to upskill existing staff or take on a new worker, your business will benefit from the skills and increased productivity that apprentices and trainees add to the workplace.

To engage an apprentice or trainee, a Commonwealth Government Training Contract must be in place. It may sound complicated but don’t worry – that’s where we come in!

Our FREE service includes:

  • Sign-up and registration of your apprentice or trainee
  • Assistance with Government incentives that you may be eligible to receive
  • Advice and assistance choosing the right Registered Training Organisation (RTO) to deliver off-the-job training
  • Access to our free online jobs board to find the right match for your team
  • Easy online access to your apprentice and trainee records
  • Ongoing mentoring and support to give your apprentice or trainee the best chance at remaining in employment and completing their training

Our relationship doesn’t end when they start work – in fact that’s just the beginning!
