Want to Hire a Trainee or Apprentice?

Look Now Training will work with you to find the right Trainee or Apprentice for your organisation and support you both every step of the way.


We know that all new workers must be trained in company-specific processes, so there will be an initial training period whether an employee has previous experience or not, however there are many benefits to hiring a Trainee or Apprentice including:

  • Apprentices and Trainees can be trained to meet the specific needs of your business while also gaining nationally recognised skills and qualifications.
  • Increasing your ability to gain contracts and new work.
  • Improving staff engagement and reduced turnover, as well as bringing fresh enthusiasm and energy.
  • Apprentices and Trainees can bring the most up-to-date knowledge to your business.
  • Enhancing productivity; research shows that those companies who employ apprentices and trainees have better productivity than those who don’t.
  • Developing supervisory skills in your existing workforce.
  • Providing a positive return on investment as you enhance organisational capability and reduce overheads.
  • By the time they are qualified, you have a skilled specialist worker who knows your business and your customers.

Additionally, entry-level employees attract an entry-level salary. While Apprentices and Trainees must be paid fair wages, these rates are calculated to increase slowly throughout the individual’s training until they are fully qualified.

Funding Incentives

There are also monetary incentives offered to employers who train people with in-demand skills.

Under the Federal Australian Apprenticeships Incentives Program, an employer can earn $1500 for signing up an apprentice or trainee, then double that if the worker sees their training through to the end.

There is often also an extra $1000 if the employer is in a rural or regional area, and an extra $750 if the worker is completing high school alongside their vocational qualification.
