Group training organisations
GTOs employ apprentices and trainees under a training contract and place them with host employers for completion of the apprenticeship/traineeship.
If you are employed with a GTO you may be hosted by more than one employer over the duration of your apprenticeship or traineeship. This can be a great way of getting a variety of workplace experiences.
In 2015–16, there were 26 GTOs operating in Western Australia, with some operating in more than one region, and together they had almost 2 000 apprenticeship and traineeship commencements.
The goals of group training are to:
- create additional apprenticeship and traineeship employment opportunities that otherwise might not have existed;
- provide for continuity of employment of apprentices and trainees through to the completion of their training contract; and
- improve the quality and breadth of training available to apprentices and trainees, particularly in small and medium sized businesses.
To find out more about what group training can offer, view the list of GTOs in WA and contact those that match with your area of interest for training.
