Hiring Apprentices

Be the one to create a future.

DGT have been the trusted Group Training Provider for over 30 years in apprenticeships and traineeships throughout Toowoomba and the Darling Downs. With a candidate pool in the thousands we look forward to showing you why we have become known as the most reliable Group Training Provider around.

What is a Group Training Organisation and how do they help me hire apprentices?

Group Training Organisations or GTO's assist you in hiring and then employing apprentices or trainees when your business doesn't have the time or resources to perform all of the hiring, recruitment, training and payroll administration.

When you approach a GTO to hire an apprentice you become a host employer. As a DGT Host Employer we will hire and employ apprentices and trainees for you and then host them with you on a short or long-term basis according to your needs to get the practical hands on experience and training they require.

We help you hire apprentices by;

  1. Choosing the right apprenticeship or traineeship program to match your skills and business needs.
  2. Advertising the apprenticeship through multiple online channels.
  3. Screening and Interviewing all prospective candidates.
  4. Handling of all recruiting to find you the best candidate to meet your needs.
  5. Organising all training with a Registered Training Organisation.

All for no upfront cost to you! 


Once you have joined DGT in hiring the apprentice, we will become their legal employer and you will become their host employer. From that point forward you simply pay one hourly rate on a single weekly invoice. Plus our services as a GTO are 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE - which means more money kept in your business at tax time. 

DGT is your business partner for your employment needs. We are always there to assist you and your apprentice from Day 1 of employment til Day done! If you are ready for the challenge of hiring an apprentice, but want your time and priorities to remain with your business whilst someone else takes the time to find your best match, then we are here to help. 

How do we do this?

Step 1: Register your Interest with DGT

Regardless of which path you will ultimately choose in hiring your apprentice, it is essential that you reach out to us by providing a few details to let us know you're ready to hire an apprentice.

Step 2: Choose your protégé

With our guidance make the best choice possible on who you will be imparting your valuable time, skills and efforts onto. Once you've decided we do all the paperwork to make the magic happen! 

Step 3: Mentor 

Impart your knowledge and practical know-how and we will help you take care of the rest, including off site training and full support at anytime you need it. 

Our team are passionate about helping you mentor tomorrow's leaders for the betterment of all, and as a Host Employer you are vital to the future of our community and in creating opportunities for our young people.
