HOST AN ETCO APPRENTICE
Under our apprentice employment model, Etco employs apprentices and seconds them to host companies as placements.
EMPLOY MY OWN APPRENTICE
Etco can help you find an apprentice as we have established channels with schools and other sources of applicants.
An apprentice can make a positive impact on your business, freeing you up to focus on the business and bringing new ideas and energy.
Here are some things to consider before taking on an apprentice.
- Who in your business will do the training?
- How will you cover time off for off-job training?
- Can you provide the variety of work experience required? Would you be able to loan out or swap with another business?
- Do you have a training plan in place?
The Government’s Apprenticeship Boost Fund offers $500 per month for any first or second-year apprentice. This scheme was designed to help apprentices to keep earning as the country recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Payments are made directly to employers and is available until the end of December 2023. We will pass the payment directly to your business should you host an Etco apprentice. T&C’s Apply.
