There’s never been a better time to train your team

13 October, 2017

Get the skills your team needs for less! A range of funded apprenticeship and traineeship qualifications are available now to help local businesses develop their workforce, and local workers advance their career.


Ready to get started?

To take advantage of funding, a Commonwealth Government Training Contract must be in place. This may sound complicated but don’t worry – that’s where we come in!

We’re here to sign up your new employees, register their Training Contract with the relevant State or Territory Training Authority and check your eligibility for further Government financial incentives – all at absolutely no cost to you or your employee.
