We can assist you with signing up new trainees and apprentices, or if you already have a trainee or apprentice then we can also assistance with government funding and incentives.

 

IOGTA employs and places apprentices and trainees with industry host employers, as regular group training organisations do, but we also provide support to the employers that employ their apprentices directly.

  • Guidance with selecting the right apprenticeship/ traineeship for your business;

  • Facilitate the recruitment process, if required;

  • Provide information about government incentives and subsidies;

  • Help you choose a suitable TAFE or Registered Training Organisation;

  • Facilitate the contractual requirements of the apprenticeship/ traineeship;

Financial Assistance

Whereas apprentices attend TAFE for their off-the-job training, trainees typically complete the theory component of their studies remotely.  To assist these trainees with their studies, IOGTA is funded to heavily subsidise the cost for lecturers to travel to the Indian Ocean Territories to assess trainees in their workplace.
