FAQs

  • Who monitors the Apprentice or Trainee's training progress?

    GTNT staff work with apprentices and trainees to monitor their learning progress. They ensure the apprentice or trainee is on track to complete their qualification and is developing the skills needed to be successful in the workplace.

  • Does that mean I can choose to have an Apprentice or Trainee for only as long as I need them?

    Yes. GTNT offers the flexibility that direct employment can't. If your business requirements change and you find the apprentice or trainee is no longer needed then with GTNT you can make changes.

  • If I use GTNT do I still receive the Government incentive payments for taking on an Apprentice or Trainee?

    Yes. You still receive the benefit of Australian Government incentive payments. GTNT will either pass these incentive payments directly on to host employers or they will use these payments to lower their charge out rate (the cost of using their services).

  • Why use GTNT?

    We carefully select suitable apprentices and trainees. We handle the paperwork and payroll. We provide ongoing support to make sure everything runs smoothly. You have the flexibility to meet peak workloads and seasonal variations without the worries of long-term contracts. You get quality apprentices and trainees with GTNT's proven performance.

  • Is Group Training an affordable option?

    Yes. If you calculate all the hidden costs of employing an apprentice or trainee (including your time and effort) and the experience and expertise that group training staff bring to the recruitment and ongoing management process then you'll find group training delivers value for money.

  • Who can use GTNT?

    Any business can use GTNT to employ their apprentices or trainees because GTNT is active in just about every industry - from the traditional trades through to community, personal and business services.

  • What industries can I do an apprenticeship/traineeship in?

    GTNT is active in most industries - automotive, construction, electrical, plumbing, engineering, horticulture, community services, retail, hospitality, business administration and more.

  • What is an apprenticeship & traineeship?

    Combining training with paid employment, apprenticeships and traineeships offer recognised qualifications in over 500 occupations.

  • What's the difference between an apprenticeship & traineeship?

    Apprenticeships generally last three to four years and cover traditional trades. Traineeships cover a wider range of occupations, however the training is usually between one and two years.

  • What happens once I've completed an apprenticeship or traineeship?

    You may be offered ongoing employment or you may choose to seek other employment or further education.
