Group Training Organisations

Group Training is an alternative employment arrangement for Australian Apprentices and employers whereby a Group Training Organisation (known as a GTO) recruits potential and/or existing Australian Apprentices under an Apprenticeship/Traineeship Training Contract and places them with ‘host’ employers while they undertake their training.

The GTO is the employer of the Australian Apprentice and this administratively simple arrangement is particularly attractive to small and medium enterprises considering employing an Australian Apprentice when this might otherwise not be possible.

Group Training Organisations operate across Australia. Some specialise in servicing a particular industry, while others may cater for an entire region, covering many industries. The Group Training Organisations operating in Melbourne's west are:

  • 370 Degrees Group Limited 

  • AFL Sportsready 

  • Apprenticeships Group Australia

  • ATEL

  • Australian Industry Group Training Services
