Is hiring an apprentice or trainee affordable?

In short, yes. MIGAS coordinates the recruitment, selection, interview and induction process, and there are no upfront costs.

Your apprentice or trainee is charged to you at an agreed hourly rate for the hours they work and study, in line with the relevant modern Award or EBA of your organisation. 

As an accredited Group Training Organisation (GTO), MIGAS contractually employs apprentices and trainees, and facilitates all aspects of their training with you as their host employer, and with the Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

Group training is especially suited to businesses that do not have the time or resources to undertake all the functions involved in an Australian Apprenticeship.

MIGAS looks after wages, workers compensation and other employee benefits, uniforms and PPE, as well as providing ongoing mentoring and support that directly impacts the success of the apprentice or trainee. 

These benefits are included in the hourly rate, which is confirmed up front and in full consultation with your business.

Taking on an apprentice or trainee with MIGAS means less risk to your business.
