Benefits of employing an Australian Apprentice

Australian Apprenticeships is a term that covers all apprenticeships and traineeships.
Australian apprenticeships provide real benefits to NSW Finance and Insurance Services 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.

Range of Australian Apprenticeships for the NSW Finance and Insurance Services Industry

Australian Apprenticeships for the NSW Finance and Insurance Services Industry have been developed with the input of industry to cover both new entrants and existing workers and range from Financial Services to Superannuation. An Apprenticeship is usually of 12 to 24 months duration.

Support for employers

Australian Apprenticeship organisations will provide you with information, help and support at all stages of the process. 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.
