At Apprenticeships Are Us, we understand that parents like to be in the loop and have a sound understand of what their child is doing throughout the tenure of their apprenticeship. 

We are a GTO (Group Training Organisation)

Apprenticeships Are Us is a Group Training Organisation (GTO) that has been supplying quality apprentices to the automotive industry for over a decade. Our management boast over 100 years of experience in the industry.

Working with Commonwealth and State Governments, Registered Training Organisations and the school system, we are at the forefront of addressing the skills shortage in the automotive industry. Apprenticeships Are Us is a not for profit organisation where all surpluses are put back into the industry for the direct benefit of its clients.

Apprenticeships Are Us differentiates itself from other group training organisations through only servicing the automotive industry. We represent the industry at Careers Fairs, Trade Expos, State and Federal Government forums, vocational education and training working groups, and regular meetings with interested stakeholders. We are dedicated to developing the future tradespeople of the Automotive Industry.

You might be asking, what’s a Group Training Organisation? Group Training is a training and employment arrangement where an organisation, known as a Group Training Organisation or GTO, employs apprentices and trainees under an Apprenticeship/Traineeship Training Contract and places them with host employers. A GTO assumes the employer responsibilities for the quality and continuity of the apprentices’ and trainees’ employment and training. The GTO also manages the additional care and support necessary to achieve the successful completion of the training contract.

We assume the employer responsibilites for the quality and continuity of apprentices’ and trainees’ employment and training. We manage the additional care and support necessary to achieve the successful completion of the training contract.
