How Apprenticeship Training Works

Group Training is a training and employment arrangement where apprentices and trainees are employed under an Apprenticeship/Traineeship Training Contract and placed with host employers.

Apprenticeships Are Us arranges and monitors the on and off-the-job training (i.e. through TAFE or other Registered Training Organisation). Our dedicated staff monitor the apprentice and/or trainee, and provide support and advice for the host employer and the apprentice in training.

We also take responsibility for all paperwork including wages, superannuation and other employee benefits. We have a high level of commitment to WHS and the safety of our apprentices and trainees.


  • Each applicant is interviewed and undertakes an aptitude test.
  • Each applicant is reviewed by our Apprentice Employment Management team to pair them with the best possible match for an apprenticeship.
  • Applicants are paired with local clients who are actively seeking automotive apprentices.
