GC101 – BUSY At Work places Gold Coast youth into apprenticeships and traineeships

The Australian Apprenticeship Support Network logo On 14 November BUSY At Work embarked on one of its most ambitious employment campaigns to date! We set ourselves a target of placing 101 Gold Coast Year 12 school leavers and youth into apprenticeships and traineeships by December 31, 2016.

The aim of the campaign was to support employment on the Gold Coast by supporting young people and raising the profile of apprenticeships. Federal Assistant Minister for Vocational Education and Skills and Federal Member for McPherson, the Hon Karen Andrews MP and CEO of the Gold Coast City Council, Dale Dickson launched our campaign on November 14.

We did it! Thanks to Gold Coast employers we signed up 105 young people and on top of this we also signed up 279 school-based trainees and apprenticeships to help set them on their career pathway.

Employers: Build your workforce through apprenticeships and traineeships

Taking on an apprentice or trainee with the right qualifications allows you to meet industry requirements and fill current skill shortages in your business.

To help you employ an Australian Apprentice the Australian Government provides eligible businesses with financial incentives under the Australian Apprenticeships Incentive Program.

To take the hassle off you, BUSY At Work will guide you step-by-step through the entire process, from inducting your employee and signing the National Training Contract, to making sure you and your apprentice receive the financial incentives you are entitled to. BUSY can also put you in touch with a Registered Training Organisation who will deliver the training and ensure your apprentice gains the competencies required to complete their qualification.

Why build your workforce through apprenticeships and traineeships?

  • Grow your business
  • Increase your productivity
  • Reduce your staff turnover

School Leavers: Build your career with an apprenticeship and traineeship

Through an Australian Apprenticeship, you’ll develop the skills and experience required for your chosen occupation. When you’ve finished and are ready to complete, you’ll receive a nationally recognised qualification.

Australian Apprenticeships are not just for traditional trades like plumbing and air-conditioning. Training is available in a wide range of career options. Australian Apprenticeships are available in more than 600 qualifications across Australia, including traditional trades as well as a diverse range of emerging careers – everything from rescue work, zoo-keeping, IT, fashion design, television, fitness, tourism, aviation and more. Your opportunities are endless.

With an apprenticeship or traineeship you will:

  • Get practical hands on training in an industry of your choice.
  • Find your edge in a competitive market.
  • Gain formal recognition of your skills and experience.
  • Have a stepping stone to higher education.
  • Receive paid work combined with structured training that can be on-the-job, off-the-job or a combination of both.
  • Choose your training provider with your employer.
  • Have the opportunity to finish sooner as it is competency based which means you can complete your training faster if you reach the required skill levels sooner than planned.
  • End up with a nationally recognised qualification.
