What are the main benefits of using a GTO?

Using a Group Training Organisation like MIGAS (GTO) when hiring an Australian Apprentice offers several key benefits, making it an attractive option for many employers.

GTOs are well-established entities that employ apprentices and trainees and then host them out to businesses.

Here are the main benefits of hiring an apprentice or trainee with MIGAS:

Simplified administrative process: We handle much of the paperwork and administrative tasks associated with apprentices, including recruitment, weekly payroll, and compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. This reduces the administrative burden on you as the host company.

Flexibility in employment arrangements: Host companies can have apprentices in their workplace for the duration they need them. If the workload decreases, the GTO can place the apprentice with another host, ensuring continuity for the apprentice's training.

Risk mitigation: MIGAS assumes the role of the legal employer, thereby reducing the risk and responsibility for the host. This includes managing issues like workers' compensation, superannuation, and other employment-related responsibilities.

Quality training and support: MIGAS is committed to providing high-quality training and support to apprentices. We ensure that apprentices and trainees receive the appropriate on-the-job training and formal education, coordinating with the chosen Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

Ongoing support and mentorship: We provide continuous support and mentorship to both our apprentices and host companies. This includes resolving any issues that arise and ensuring that the training meets the required standards.

Industry expertise: MIGAS has 35 years of experience recruiting and employing Australian Apprentices. Our team has expertise in specific industries and trades, and understands the skills and competencies required.

Government incentives and funding: We are well-informed about available government incentives and funding options for eligible apprentices and can assist in accessing these benefits where applicable.

Social responsibility and community contribution: Employing apprentices through a GTO is a contribution to the community by supporting the training and development of young workers and safeguarding to the future skilled workforce.

Partnering with a Group Training Organisation like MIGAS when hiring an Australian Apprentice can significantly ease the process, reduce risks and administrative burdens, and ensure quality training.

It’s a practical solution for businesses seeking to contribute to skill development in their industry while benefiting from a streamlined and supportive apprenticeship program.
