Some employers also choose to engage a Group Training Organisation to assist with the employment and management of their apprentices and trainees. For more information on this, please contact us.

What is involved?

Finding the right Australian Apprentice to suit your business is important.

1. Decide which Australian Apprenticeship your business needs.

You can also find an Australian Apprentice by:

  • Advertising the job vacancy online, as well as in your local newspaper;
  • Contacting a Group Training Organisation;
  • Recruiting someone you know, or someone that has been referred to you.

3. Enter into a Training Contract
After you select the right Australian Apprentice for your business, you and that person will need to sign a Training Contract. The Training Contract must be completed by an Apprenticeship Network Provider, such as MRAEL ACE Apprenticeships Centre. A Field Officer will assist you and your Australian Apprentice to complete all of the necessary paperwork required for a Training Contract.

4. Select a Training Provider
You and your Australian Apprentice will need to choose a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). RTOs work with Australian Apprentices and their employers to deliver the off-the-job training component of apprenticeships and traineeships and assessment.

5. Get Started!
After all the requirements of the Training Contract have been completed, your Australian Apprentice is ready to start work and contribute to your business! As an Apprenticeship Network Provider, MRAEL ACE Apprenticeships Centre can support employers and Australian Apprentices through to successful completion of the apprenticeship or traineeship being undertaken. Our expert Field Officers will provide information and assistance to ensure that both employers and Australian Apprentices achieve the maximum benefit of completing an Australian Apprenticeship
