Designed to keep things simple for businesses, Group Training is an arrangement where Novaskill, the Group Training Organisation (GTO), employs an apprentice (or trainee) and then carefully matches that individual with a suited host employer for on-the-job-training and supervision. The qualification options are endless, but we can support any trade role or vocation that suits your business requirements.
1. Workforce flexibility
Just secured a new contract and need an apprentice to assist, or to help meet gender and/or diversity targets? Or just need an extra set of hands to get a contract completed on time? We provide flexible workforce solutions to ensure you have help when you need it, and if you need to hand your apprentice back when a contract wraps up, we can help them secure a placement with another host business.
2. Tax savings
The fees paid to us in order to obtain the services of an apprentice or trainee to work in your business can be claimed as a full tax deduction for your business, plus you can save on payroll tax.
3. Hassle free recruitment
Ensuring we have the perfect match is vital to success. Tell us exactly what type of person you want, and we’ll present you with our top selection of pre-screened and job-ready candidates. Then just interview the shortlist and take your pick! We will complete their pre-employment checks and medicals, get them signed up and inducted, and then they are yours.
4. Ongoing TAFE (or other RTO) management
We manage all performance and progression of your apprentice or trainee’s theory work, so you don’t have to.
5. Ongoing mentorship and pastoral care
We guarantee regular visits from your dedicated Field Officer who will conduct performance monitoring and evaluations with your apprentice or trainee, to ensure quality, continuity and success.
6. Payroll and Industrial relations management
As the legal employer, payroll is on us. We take care of pay rates, leave, award provisions and superannuation for all of our apprentices and trainees, so you don’t need to keep up to date with changes.
7. Assistance with WHS, compliance and worker’s comp
Safety is our top priority, so you will benefit from our award-winning Safety Management System, and ongoing safety training and support for your apprentice or trainee.
