If you’re considering an apprenticeship or traineeship, it can be difficult to know where to start. GTOs can relieve the headache and can guide you in your choice of what apprenticeship or traineeship opportunity may best help you achieve the career and lifestyle you desire.

If you enter into a Group Training arrangement, your GTO assumes responsibility as your employer and will ensure you are placed with a suitable host employer for the length of your apprenticeship or traineeship. The GTO will maintain the quality and continuity of your employment and training and manage the additional care and support necessary for you to successfully complete your Training Contract.

Why should I complete an Apprenticeship or Traineeship with a GTO compared to going direct to an employer?

  • Firstly, when you contact a GTO, you have access to unbiased information and assistance in finding the right apprenticeship or traineeship for you. So a GTO is a great place to start
  • GTOs have vast industry experience and connections. With a GTO, you have more choice and opportunities – you have acess to a wide variety of host businesses rather than a single position
  • You receive ongoing mentoring and support by highly qualified and dedicated Group Training Consultants who are committed to ensuring the best fit between apprentices/trainees and host employers

  • You can gain extra skills and experience by changing your host business during your apprenticeship or traineeship

  • GTOs can act as a mediator to resolve any workplace disputes or issues you may have with your apprenticeship/traineeship. They can also provide an alternative placement if this becomes necessary

  • If you’re an exceptional talent, you may be recognised through GTO state and national awards schemes and can participate in a national career development and leadership program

  • Remember, you get all of these services and you don’t have to pay a cent!
