Great Way to Learn!
Traineeships are a great way for staff to learn while they work. A traineeship is a type of vocational training (training under a supervisor) where you earn a wage and learn about the industry and job you’re in! Traineeships cover a huge range of industries (over 700) from business-related fields such as marketing or administration, to aged care & more!
Trainees must be employed on either full-time or part-time basis and be employed for a minimum of 13 hours a week.
Our experience when educating staff has shown that traineeships create a positive outcome for both the organisation and trainee. Traineeships are an Earn while you Learn, flexible education option. Trainees are motivated, feel supported and more invested in their role. This results in increased staff retention, morale and satisfaction.
Apprenticeship Network providers are funded by the Australian Government. They give advice and support services to employers and trainees throughout the trainees lifecycle – from pre-commencement to completion.
The trainee will get the benefit of structured and relevant competency-based training that teaches them skills they can use straight away.
Once the trainee has completed their traineeship, they will have the expertise, experience and qualification needed to take the next step in their career or further their education. The employing organisation may also be eligible for incentive payment. Your Apprenticeship Network provider will be able to advise you on this.
The Commonwealth Government provides incentives to employers of apprentices and trainees. Incentive amounts can vary in value and are offered on commencement and completion of a traineeships.
