Why choose a Traineeship?
Choosing a Traineeship can benefit employers and employees.
Traineeships provide an excellent opportunity for employers to recruit and develop new talent while imparting valuable knowledge and skills to propel them towards success within your business. The governments of Australia, both state and federal, offer attractive financial incentives to those employers who hire trainees, and these incentives may vary depending on various factors such as the trainee’s employment contract, the location of your business, and your employees eligibility criteria.
With AAMC Training as your preferred Registered Training Provider (RTO), you can rest assured that your trainees will receive quality education from a reputable institution. There is huge potential with traineeships and you can leverage these programs to your business’s advantage through strategic hiring and training practices.
There are multiple benefits of hiring a trainee. You don’t necessarily have to hire someone under a traineeship that has just left school or is new to industry – traineeships can work for those who may have had some industry experience but have not previously completed studies. Whatever the age or experience, there are some real positives to hiring a trainee. Here are some:
- Your training cost may be covered by the federal government grant
- Educate candidates to suit your business systems and approach
- Fresh ideas and knowledge – trainees can bring a different perspective; skill sets and knowledge to your business
- Great retention strategy – trainees have the benefit of completing a qualification, whilst learning on the job
Contact AAMC Training to discuss course options in line with job role requirements, to ensure the course is the right fit for your business and the job role outcome.
Once this has been established, we will provide preliminary course options and pricing. This is to ensure you are fully aware of what we offer before selecting us as the right RTO for you.
If you have not yet found a suitable candidate, we are happy to provide you with some good hiring tips!
The next step is to get you in contact with an Australian Apprenticeships Support Network (AASN) in your local area. The ASSN will assess if your candidate is eligible for a traineeship. Once confirmed they will organise a meeting with you and your trainee to complete a training contract. Once the training contract has been lodged and approved via the relevant state portal, AAMC Training will be notified.
Once notification is received that the traineeship has been approved via the state portal, our traineeships team will contact you to confirm details, book in an induction session with you, the trainee, and any work place allocated supervisor/s. During the induction, the team will discuss our process and documents required.
As part of the legislated requirements and joint commitment to your trainee, it is important to establish a training and support plan. This plan covers some important information such as;
- How the training will be delivered by AAMC Training and tools provided
- Who will be the employer in-house allocated workplace supervision/trainer
- Use of study allocated business hours and support to be provided
Virtual visits between all parties will ensure that the traineeship is on track with the original training plan. These visits allow all parties to discuss and document the progress of the trainee both with their course and within the workplace, in line with the core course competencies. Visitation requirements differ in each state and are conducted virtually at a mutually agreed time. The trainee and the nominated supervisor must attend the induction and all virtual visits. All virtual sessions are recorded for quality and training purposes.
*Please note the process for traineeships may differ in each state.
Standard course fees apply as per the website advertised price. There are no discounts offered with traineeship enrolments. In addition to the course fee, a traineeship administration fee of up to $1,500 per trainee will apply. This covers our administration and management of the traineeship process, including schedule visitations for the first twelve (12) months. Additional fees will apply for each consecutive year under the term of the traineeship contract.
