If you’re looking to take on apprentices or trainees, there are registers, agencies and groups to help connect you with candidates.
Australian Apprenticeship Centres
Australian Apprenticeships are available across all industries and attract financial assistance for eligible employers to help offset the cost of training.
Visit the Australian Apprenticeship Centres website or call 13 38 73.
Skill Connect Register
The Skill Connect Register connects employers with:
- out of trade apprentices looking for work
- job-ready candidates for the construction industry.
Once registered as an employer, you’re able to search the database for suitable candidates, view their details and make contact.
Visit the Skill Connect Register.
The Aboriginal Employment Register
The Aboriginal Employment Register lists Indigenous people with skills who are job-ready. It includes people with trades and people looking for apprenticeships.
Call the Infoline on 1800 506 266.

Group training organisations
Group training organisations (GTOs) can link you with job-ready apprentices at every stage of their apprenticeship from a new apprentice to a third or fourth year apprentice. It’s up to you.
In most cases, you can register your details with the GTO and be matched with an apprentice or trainee.
