Traineeships

Information for Employers

WHAT IS A TRAINEESHIP?

Traineeships are part of the Australian Government's Australian Apprenticeship Initiative and are an employment based training arrangement.

During the course of the traineeship employers agree to train their employee in a set industry and the employee agrees to work and learn on the job.

On successful completion of the traineeship employees receive a nationally recognised qualification. Training is conducted on the job to ensure minimal disruption to your workplace.

Traineeships offer employers a convenient and cost effective means of training their staff.

Nationwide Training can offer traineeships to employers in the logistics, transport and manufacturing industries. We can also cater for your administrative employees.

Traineeships can offer you many benefits, some of these include:

  • Generous government incentives may be available for eligible workers.

  • Convenient and flexible training delivered on your site.*
  • Training can be customised to your organisational needs.
  • Improved productivity and efficiency in your workplace.
