Host Employers

1300apprentice is a not-for-profit Group Training Organisation that assists our Host Employers with the placement of apprentices and trainees.

What is a Group Training Organisation (GTO)?

1300apprentice operates under nationally recognised guidelines as outlined by the GTO National Standards and the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.

We are the legal employer and have the expertise required to assist in all areas of ensuring the apprentice/trainee progresses through their training contract to a successful conclusion.

We are an independent third party that acts as a facilitator if required between you and the apprentice/trainee.

The 1300apprentice commitment is to source and provide quality apprentices and trainees on behalf of host employers across a broad section of industry. The 1300apprentice service includes:

  • The recruitment process including advertising, interviewing and testing
  • Provide selected candidates to the host employer for their final decision
  • Induction of the apprentice/trainee, arrange the training contract including

Government department liaison, payroll, superannuation, workers compensation, leave entitlements, PAYG certificates and Registered Training Organisation (RTO) correspondence

  • Handling employment issues such as workers compensation claims and return to work programs, OH&S site inspections and PPE issue
  • Coordination of training with the RTO and the apprentice/trainee, including enrolment, reimbursement of fees and monitoring results and attendance
  • Liaising with the host employer and the apprentice/trainee regularly to ensure on-the-job performance is maintained through regular scheduled visits and other visits as arranged
  • Mentoring and counselling support when required
Hot Jobs!


  • Hot Tips

      • Don't apply for multiple jobs in multiple vocations.  The employer will  be unsure about where your real desire lies and may not even contact you.
      • Use professional email addresses.  Modern and trendy ones that are inappropriate do not sit well with employers.
      • Always maintain eye contact in the interview.  This shows the employer that you are interested and confident in what they have to say.
      • Give yourself plenty of time to get to the interview.  Research the location, do a test run if you have to.  Getting there 15 minutes early is always better than 5 minutes late.
      • Make sure your referees speak highly of you.  There is nothing worse than a bad reference from a recent employer.
      • Have your resume proof read before sending it to an employer.  Spelling mistakes and grammatical errors will not help your cause.
      • Dress well at all times.  Poor presentation gives the employer the impression that your work performance may also be poor.
      • Remember the interview starts before you walk in the door!  Be prepared to be on show the minute you apply for the job.
      • Make sure in your interview that you have good reasons for wanting the job.  Being vague or sketchy is not what employers want to hear.
      • If you are applying for a job, make sure you have voicemail on your phone.  If an employer cannot contact you, then you may miss out!
      • Don't be late for an interview. An employer may think you will be late for work if you can't get to an interview on time!
      • Is your resume up to date?
      • Spelling and grammatical errors on your resume will lead to an instant rejection by the employer!
      • Don't forget to proof read your resume!
      • One word or two word answers in an interview won't get you across the line.
