Group training organisation

A profit, or not-for-profit, entity (usually a company) established to provide a group training service to employers, apprentices and trainees.

Group training services

GTOs employ apprentices and trainees and are responsible for ensuring those employees receive suitable training, on-the-job experience and appropriate support. To achieve this aim, GTOs will find a suitable ‘host’ employer for the apprentice or trainee to work with on a day-to-day basis.

Apprentices and trainees employed by GTOs may spend their entire apprenticeship or traineeship with one host employer who can offer a well-rounded training and employment experience. Alternatively, they may be rotated around a number of host employers who can each offer a specialised area of training.

Entities that are recognised as GTOs in the NT will have met the requirements of this policy and the national standards for group training organisations.

Recognition of GTOs and the employment of apprentices and trainees in the NT are governed by this policy and the Training and Skills Development Act 2016 respectively.

Organisations that satisfy the requirements set out within this policy will be placed on the group training national register.
