Group training organisations employ apprentices and trainees and then place them with one or more ‘host businesses’ for the duration of their training. The group training organisation works closely with these host businesses to ensure you receive quality training, and also to provide any additional support to ensure they successfully complete your training qualification.

What is Group Training

Group Training is an employment and training arrangement where a Group Training Organisation (GTO) acts as the primary employer to apprentices and trainees and then places them with other businesses known as "host employers", whilst they are undertaking their formal training.

It provides a cost-efficient and administratively simple way for small to medium sized businesses to hire apprentices/trainees when this might otherwise not be possible. It also creates quality employment and training opportunities for career seekers providing a breadth of experience gained in a number of different enterprises.

The GTO arranges and monitors the on and off-the-job training and takes responsibility for all paperwork including wages, superannuation and other employee benefits.

The GTO ensures the quality and quantity of the apprentices' and trainees' employment training and experience by rotating where necessary from business to business.
