For employers

Take on Tomorrow

For employers, taking on a school-based apprentice or trainee means preparing the future workforce for your business, organisation and/or industry. Providing job opportunities for young people is essential in developing the skills base of tomorrow.

Your apprentice or trainee will undertake a combination of industry-specialised training, school and one day per week in paid employment, learning the specifics of your enterprise.

For you, training costs are minimised, financial incentives ease take-up and you can expect a tailor-made worker trained and ready to contribute after the HSC.
