Unfortunately, not all apprenticeships or traineeships work out as planned, which can lead to a training contract getting cancelled or terminated. Fortunately, there are systems in place to support you if this happens.

As part of the new Australian Apprenticeship Support Network, MEGT now offers an apprenticeship and traineeship matching service called Gateway Services.

With Gateway Services MEGT can match the right person to the right apprenticeship. It also helps those who may not suit an apprenticeship by providing information about alternative career paths that are available.
