Hello, I’m Libby and as Head of Business Services for Datacom I contribute daily to building our talent pipeline through embedding a culture of developing, retaining and promoting our diverse talent and skills within our team of employees.
Our tailored training enables our team members to grow personally and expand the skill sets required for a fast paced customer service environment.
Why your business should take on an apprentice or trainee
When you employ an apprentice or trainee, you give your business the benefit of a skilled worker who understands your needs. This increases your competitive advantage by generating growth and productivity. Funding is available for many apprenticeships and traineeships.
Discuss your workforce training needs with TAFE SA.
For Employers - where do I start?
Here’s how to register an apprentice or trainee using TAFE SA as your preferred training provider:
|1||Select a person to sign up as an apprentice or trainee.|
|2||Select an Apprenticeship Network Provider (ANP - see below) to assist you in setting up the contract of training.|
|3||Ask your ANP if your organisation is eligible for government incentives/support.|
|4||Having chosen TAFE SA as the preferred training provider, we will complete a training plan with you and your new apprentice or trainee, tailored to your organisation’s needs.|
|5||The State Government’s Regulation and Contract Management will assess the contract of training application and advise you in writing of the decision.|
|6||TAFE SA will contact the apprentice or trainee to commence their training.|
|7||Upon successful completion of the qualification the apprentice or trainee will be issued with a parchment.|
Apprentices/Trainees with a Disability (DAAWS)
All TAFE SA students, including apprentices and trainees can receive assistance through Student Services.
The ‘Disabled Australian Apprentice Wage Support’ (DAAWS) scheme is a Commonwealth-funded initiative which supports apprentices/trainees to help them reach their potential as skilled workers.
The scheme may provide support for the off-the job component of your apprenticeship/traineeship, including mentoring, tutoring and interpreting.
For more information, contact one of our student services officers or your Australian Apprenticeship Network Provider:
