Apprenticeships 101: Everything you need to know about hiring an apprentice

Posted by ATEC Group Training on 11 March 2014
Apprenticeships are a timeless tradition that benefits employers as well as skilled people looking to gain valuable experience in their chosen field. Hiring an apprentice in Adelaide has never been easier thanks to the services available at Adelaide Training and Employment Centre, where we take care of all the recruitment, administration and training for you.


Reasons to hire an apprentice

Whatever industry your business operates in, apprentices can be a perfect fit for many roles. What apprentices usually lack in experience they make up for in an eagerness to learn. By giving apprentices the chance to grow their skills on the job you will be helping to shape the next generation of skilled workers, not to mention saving money compared to the cost of hiring a regular employee.


Personalised assistance tailored to your business

ATEC will assign a qualified Case Manager to support you with all your needs from recruitment to training.  We can assist with hiring apprentices out to your business if you can’t guarantee long term work or if you want to directly employ an apprentice we can help you source the right person and then set up training that fits your needs and timetables.

The value of apprenticeships in your business

Posted by ATEC Group Training on 20 February 2014
Apprentice training is a mutually advantageous solution that gives eager workers the chance to build their skills on the job, while enabling employers to save money on recruiting and training the skilled workers of the future.

Whether you work in construction, industrial, electrical, manufacturing or other industries that depend on skilled tradespeople, Adelaide Training and Employment Centre can take the hard work out of training the right candidates for multiple roles.


Flexibility that suits your business needs and requirements

Whether you need an apprentice for a long-term role or you’re just looking to fill a temporary position, ATEC operates flexible apprentice hiring arrangements that meet your needs. We specialise in rotating apprentices between employers, which gives workers more opportunities to gain essential experience and means employers only hire apprentices for as long as they are needed.


On-site training

Another huge advantage ATEC offers businesses is our ability to provide a large portion of training on site with the employer if that suits. We find that many businesses prefer their apprentices to be trained on their equipment in their workplace and it enables a true partnership between us, the apprentice and importantly you the employer.

How to find an apprentice that suits you

Posted by ATEC Group Training on 12 January 2014

How to find an apprentice that suits you

Apprenticeships are mutually beneficial arrangements for employers and apprentices alike, but if you don’t choose the right candidate you could be stuck with an unsuitable trainee for the duration of their contract. Knowing what to look for in a trainee will ensure you get the most out of hiring an apprentice for your business.

Qualities to look for

If the position you’re looking to fill requires a certain attitude, skills or experience, you should look for these qualities just as you would when hiring a regular employee. Apprentices are less likely to have experience in the industry, of course – especially in the case of recent school leavers and university graduates – and this can make the interview process all the more important for selecting the most suitable candidate.Beyond job-specific skills, a good apprentice should display an eagerness to learn the business and to gain experience. A positive attitude and motivated personality are key requirements that you can be confident will be met when you hire an apprentice from a trusted organisation.

Where to look

Maximise your chances of finding the ideal apprentice by contacting a reputable training and employment organisation in Australia. These not-for-profit organisations are dedicated to providing hard-working apprentices of all ages, and will take care of all the paperwork involved.

When looking for apprenticeships, find out whether the organisation provides its own training and regular mentoring services to ease the strain on your business. You should also check the flexibility of apprenticeship arrangements if you are only looking for a temporary employee.
