INFORMATION FOR EMPLOYERS

Helping your business thrive

At Imagine Education Australia, we recognise the unique needs of every employer and offer customised training programs. We provide an individual training plan that is flexible and supportive of the employee’s professional acknowledgements.

Building your business the smart way

Australian apprenticeships and traineeships offer anyone of working age the opportunity to train, study, and earn an income in a wide range of occupations and trades. An apprentice can be a school-leaver, a person re-entering the workforce or an adult worker simply wishing to change careers. You can even employ apprentices or trainees part-time while they are still at high school through a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship.

Taking on an apprentice or trainee with the right qualifications allows you to meet industry requirements and fill current skill shortages in your business. And don’t forget, training existing staff allows you to retain their organisational knowledge and keeps them motivated so staff stay in their jobs for longer.

To help you employ an Australian apprentice, the Australian Government provides eligible businesses with financial incentives under the Australian Apprenticeships Incentive Program.

Apprenticeships or traineeships can be either full-time or part-time, and can take from one to four years to complete depending on the qualification and the type of apprenticeship or traineeship. They are available from certificate levels to Advanced Diplomas and are developed by industry for industry. In the end, your employee will receive a nationally-recognised qualification and you’ll have staff that are on top of their game.

We will help you:

  • Find you all the information you need;
  • Show you how to choose the right qualification to fit your business;
  • Complete the induction and training contract of your apprentice or trainee;
  • Show you how to fill in and lodge your paperwork;
  • Assess and process claims for your financial incentives; and
  • Keep in touch with you and your employee to make sure you’re on the right path.
