When an apprentice or trainee is employed by a Group Training Organisation, they are placed with a host employer to develop the skills required for their apprenticeship or traineeship.
Hiring an apprentice or trainee from a Group Training Organisation allows host employers to take part in the employment and training of apprentices and trainees to suit their business needs.
Group training can be particularly important to small and medium sized businesses that otherwise:
- see committing to an apprenticeship or traineeship as too risky
- perhaps lack the resources to manage an apprentice or trainee
- are unable to provide the range of on the job training and skills required for the full term of an apprenticeship or traineeship.
