What is Group training?

The term ‘Group Training’ refers to an arrangement where apprentices and trainees are employed by an organisation that takes primary responsibility for their training and employment (TasBGAS) but places them with other businesses for their on-the-job training.

Group Training is particularly useful for businesses that:

  • Find it difficult to commit to employing an apprentice or trainee for the entire training period
  • Have a narrow range of work and cannot provide the range of experience required by the apprenticeship or traineeship
  • Prefer a Field Officer to manage their employment and training responsibilities, for example recruitment, payroll, leave, Superannuation and Work Cover
Group Training is an easy and cost-effective way to have apprentices and trainees in your workplace.  We take on the risk and hassle of having an apprentice/trainee, and ensure both you (as the Host) and the apprentice/trainee receives the best possible outcome from the training agreement.

TasBGAS is the legal employer of the apprentice or trainee, so we have a vested interest in their apprenticeship/ traineeship and make sure the process is easy for you, the Host Company, and the apprentice/trainee.
