Benefits to Employers

Every industry needs enthusiastic and capable workers to provide the skills and the labour to build the community and the country. Our prosperity is founded on employment. 

Every student who joins GTEC aspires to an apprenticeship, traineeship or a job in their chosen field. GTEC has been working closely with local employers for many years helping students to reach their goals and employers to find great young people to work with them. 

It is the backing of these employers from all industry sectors that enables GTEC students the opportunity to gain the valuable work experience in their chosen field. 

The benefits include:

  • Investing in a GTEC School Based Apprenticeship/Trainee means investing in your business' future

  • GTEC is a great source of quality apprentices who are well rounded, skilled young people eager for an apprenticeship in their chosen trade

  • Employers are able to work trial students and have early involvement in developing students' on the job skills

  • At Certificate II level GTEC students will be ahead with trade credit, so in the later years of the full-time apprenticeship your apprentice will not be off the job due to trade school*

  • GTEC School Based Apprenticeship Trainees work to a calendar and in most trades are released for week blocks for on the job work. This makes planning ahead easy for employers and keeps the apprentice/student in consistent work to encourage better retention of learned skills

* Electrical, plumbing, and landscaping have individual scenarios
