Why Join AEN
AEN Membership and Group Training Organisations
Our members are part of an important network of leaders across Queensland and the Northern Territory.
What is a GTO?
A GTO is an organisation that provides training and employment opportunities. They employ apprentices and trainees in a wide variety of industries, while also being responsible for ensuring those employees receive quality training and suitable experience. To achieve this, the GTO will find an appropriate 'host' employer for each apprentice or trainee to work with on a daily basis.
Apprentices and trainees employed by GTOs may spend their entire apprenticeship or traineeship with one host employer who can offer them a well-rounded training experience. Alternatively, they may be rotated around a number of host employers who can each offer a specialised area of training.
A GTO assumes the employer responsibilities for the ongoing employment and quality training of their apprentices and trainees. They also manage the additional care and support necessary to achieve the successful completion of the training contract.
