Employing apprentices and trainees

Employing an apprentices or trainee can bring real benefits to your business.

You can fill skills gaps and teaching someone else often leads to re-evaluating your own processes, which can increase the efficiency and productivity of your business. Whilst there are incentives available to employers who take on an apprentice or trainee, there are also obligations you need to be aware of.

Writing up a training contract and training plan are two examples of additional activities having an apprentice requires.

The Skills Tasmania website is a key source of information about apprenticeships and traineeships in Tasmania with a comprehensive website to help you with everything you need.
