You can rely on us.
DGT proudly operates both Group Training and Registered Training under the one roof, being one of the only companies to do so in the local area. Why is this important? Simply put – reliability.
Formerly Downs Group Training and The Apprenticeship Company we are now operating as one team - DGT.
Our company is a local not for profit community based organisation boasting a long standing history with Toowoomba, the Darling Downs and the Western Downs having been a trusted supplier to the community since 1987. Today we are pleased to continue serving our community and to strengthen our offerings we have now unified with one clear aim, to be better – together.
You can rely on us to achieve better futures for our young jobseekers, better quality skills for local businesses, better outcomes for a brighter more vibrant community.
So what is it we do?
On one hand, in Group Training, we create career pathways for budding apprentices and trainees with the help of local host employers. We employ hundreds of jobseekers as either an apprentice or trainee and match them to local host businesses that will give them the most practical learning available in their chosen industry. Host employers rely on us to manage all of the paperwork and training particulars to ensure that the theoretical side of our apprentices and trainees learning is achieved to empower them with further practical abilities within the host business. For businesses wishing to grow their labour force at minimum cost whilst mentoring tomorrows business people this is the perfect fit.
On the other hand, in Registered Training, we offer training courses and services to not only train our apprentices and trainees, but anyone who wishes to upgrade their learning and career outcomes.
Other services we offer that accentuate these offerings is recruitment services and labour hire. Our local businesses love the addition of these services as they help complete a full employment and training offering for their needs.
Why does this help me?
Being both a Group Training Organisation (GTO) and a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) means that you benefit from a holistic learning experience.
Many GTO’s must source and deal with multiple RTO’s to service their client’s needs. Inversely many RTO’s must source a reputable GTO to partner with. DGT is your local supplier of both. This means that we are more reliable than the rest, we are one team working together in one direction – to achieve better outcomes for you and for us.
