Support is available to help you find the right employer
If you’re looking to start your career as a trainee or an apprentice, you may be wondering how to find an employer to complete your training with.
A Group Training Organisation (GTO) will place you with a host employer
Your host employer is where you’ll work to complete your apprenticeship or traineeship. However, your actual employer will be the GTO.
Your GTO will be responsible for:
- paying your wages, allowances, superannuation, workers compensation, sick / holiday pay, and other employment benefits
- managing the quality and consistency of your training
- providing any support you need to complete your training. For example, if something changes or if you need specific skills to complete your qualification, your GTO will organise a new host employer
- regularly checking your progress and working with your host employer to resolve issues in the workplace
