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.

On 1 July 2015 with the roll-out 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.

Finding a new employer

While the termination or cancellation of a contract is disappointing, you should begin the search for a new employer as quickly as possible. An excellent way to get the ball rolling is to upload your resume to the MEGT jobs board.

MEGT Gateway Services is FREE for candidates and employers and is designed to match apprentices and trainees with employers in their area. MEGT Gateway Services allows you to filter apprenticeships and traineeships according to your preferred state, industry and location.
Employers can post their vacancies or simply register with the site, allowing them to access a database of eager and suitable apprentices and trainees perfectly matched to their on-the-job training opportunity.
