Tasmanian Apprenticeships

Apprentice at Tasmanian Building Group Apprenticeships working on a house
Tasmanian Apprenticeships are opportunities for a person of any working age to train, earn an income, and gain a nationally-recognised qualification in a wide range of commercial fields and traditional trades.

As an apprentice, you are indentured into an apprenticeship for a normal duration of four years’ full-time employment. During your apprenticeship, you work on specific units of competency as per your Training Plan with a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

If you are successful in an application with TasBGAS, you will be employed by TasBGAS and placed with the Host Employer where you will complete your on-the-job training.

The benefits of being employed by TasBGAS

There are many benefits to being employed by TasBGAS, including:

  • We take care of all paperwork for you and make it as simple as possible to commence and complete your apprenticeship
  • We provide you with boots, trousers/shorts and basic PPE
  • We conduct a full comprehensive Induction prior to your commencement with your Host Employer, which also includes a large section on safety
  • We arrange your training and provide you with all the details you need to attend, including dates, times, locations and requirements
  • We pay for your Training fees
  • We take an active role in your training to help you achieve the best result possible
  • We have a large Host Employer network and have the ability to rotate you from company to company, to broaden your skills set across all facets of your trade
  • If productivity is low or if there is a down turn of work with your Host Employer and they can’t keep you on, we will organise for you to be placed with a new Host Employer to continue your apprenticeship with little to no lost time
  • We provide you with mentoring and support on all matters to do with your apprenticeship and employment, not only in the workplace but in your home life too
  • We make sure you are up-to-date with your training and remind you when important things are due, for example: timesheets, so you get paid on time!

What about after my apprenticeship?

Upon completion of your apprenticeship, you may have the opportunity to:

  • apply for permanent employment with your Host Employer;
  • find employment with a different business.
  • work overseas or interstate; or,
