Group Training arrangements mean that a business can have the benefit of an apprentice without the added paperork or cost. As a Group Training Organisation act apprenticeships employ apprentices/trainees and place them with Host Employers.
act apprenticeships' Host Employers are selected for their excellence in their trade and their commitment to training apprentices. They recognise the importance of skilling the trades people of tomorrow, ensuring our community have the skills we need in the construction industry in the future.
As a Host Employer of an act apprenticeships apprentice you have access to specialised Field Officers who provide their services in ensuring the apprentices are offered the highest level of training and support possible. Industrial relations advice is available as needed and act apprenticeships also have access to counselling services for all people associated with the organisation through an Employee Assistance Program with Construction Charitable Works (CCW).
