Does my apprentice have to attend offsite training?

Yes, Australian Apprenticeships by design include both on-the-job training for practical skill development, and off-the-job training with a Registered Training Organisation such as TAFE.

The good news is that offsite training blocks are planned well in advance, and for some traineeships may be flexibly delivered (such as a Business Traineeship).

Whether your business hires an apprentice or trainee directly or utilises the services of a Group Training Organisation like MIGAS, you are obligated to release the employee for off-the-job training.

Each Australian Apprentice completes a nationally accredited qualification as part of their training, specific to the trade specialisation selected.

When hiring an apprentice or trainee through MIGAS, we take the load of scheduling and booking RTO-delivered training, meaning you’ll be able to plan ahead with confidence.

To find an apprentice or trainee for your business, contact MIGAS to discuss your requirements.


In the spirit of reconciliation, MIGAS Apprentices & Trainees acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and emerging, and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
