Information for Businesses

Traineeships are a great way to upskill and empower your staff.

MTC Australia will provide a customised, nationally recognised training program to suit your business needs. MTC also provides support and monitors the trainee’s progress throughout the course.

Businesses can take on new workers (New Entrant Traineeships) or existing workers (Existing Worker Traineeship) as trainees.

Fee Free Traineeships

MTC Australia is offering fee free traineeships (as of 1 January 2020) to eligible participants under the NSW Government’s new $54.3 million initiative that will help improve access to traineeships. The program will save trainees or their employers from having to pay up to $1,000 for training costs.

Fee free traineeships are available to full-time employees who have been employed by a business for less than three months and part-time employees who have been employed for less than 12 months, and the training is subsidised by the NSW Government.
