Skilling Queenslanders for Work
Support for service providers
At MEGT, we know you’re the experts when it comes to supporting community-based organisations (CBOs) to get their Skilling Queenslanders for Work-funded programs up and running. We also know some things are trickier to navigate than others…like the Australian Apprenticeships programme.
That’s where we come in.
Who is MEGT?
Established in 1982, MEGT is an Australian not-for-profit organisation that has been supporting local employers, apprentices, trainees and job seekers for 35 years.
Put simply – we’re your local apprenticeship experts.
How can we help?
For CBOs choosing to give local job seekers an opportunity to be involved in their programs through an apprenticeship or traineeships, our local experts are here to provide on-the-ground assistance with every aspect of the Australian Apprenticeships programme.
From recruitment, sign-up and registration to employer financial incentives, marketing and promotion and ongoing support, we offer the following FREE services to assist your CBOs through the entire Australian Apprenticeships process:
Recruiting apprentices and trainees
We can register your job vacancies on MEGT’s online job board – Career Hub. Not only will you get access to our dedicated apprenticeship and traineeship job board, you’ll also get support from a team of experts who are on hand and ready to help them achieve their recruitment goals.
Signing up apprentices and trainees
For CBOs to engage an apprentice or trainee, a Commonwealth Government Training Contract must be in place. This may sound complicated but that’s what we’re here for.
- Sign up apprentices and trainees and lodge their Training Contract with Training QLD
- Check eligibility for further Government financial incentives available when taking on apprentices and trainees and assist with claiming these when available
- Provide advice and assistance in choosing the right Registered Training Organisation (RTO) to deliver off-the-job training
- Provide easy online access to apprentice and trainee records
Our experienced team of mentors will be here once the apprentices and trainees start work to give them a hand settling into work and training, understanding how their role fits within the CBO/program and identifying development opportunities.
