Benefits of Employing an Australian Apprentice  

Australian Apprenticeships is a term that covers all apprenticeships and traineeships.

Australian apprenticeships provide real benefits to NSW employers by developing skilled productive workers trained for specific industry needs and processes.

 

Ensuring the right skills

The Australian Apprenticeship system targets better “quality assurance” of training which ensures that the employer gets a competent and motivated employee with the necessary skills to contribute effectively in the workplace.

This assistance can commence in the recruiting phase, moves then to the sign up process, continues through the funding and incentives phases and finishes when all training is successfully completed by the apprentice or trainee.
