23 Feb What Is A GTO (Group Training Organisation)?
GTO – Group Training Organisation
HLH Group have recently become a registered Group Training Organisation or ‘GTO’ for short. So what does that mean? A GTO provides training and employment opportunities for apprentices and trainees and are responsible for ensuring that those employees received suitable training and work experience relating to their chosen trade or occupation.
Why did HLH Group become a GTO?
As an established labour hire company since 2015 we have built up a large client base over the years and we have noticed a demand for apprentices. We are well positioned to offer apprentices a variety of trades and work placements specific to their training program. A training plan will outline what the apprentice needs to achieve at different stages of their program. This is assessed as units of competency, i.e. the apprentice must demonstrate to the Registered Training Organisation (RTO) such as TAFE that they have been exposed to suitable work outlined in the units of competency. An example of this would be framing as a unit of competency in carpentry. The apprentice must be working with a host employer that is doing framing, so they are applying their classroom-based learning to on-the-job practical work. This is the same for all trades.
What is the role of a GTO?
The role of a GTO involves ensuring the training program devised by the RTO is followed by the apprentice and the host employer which the GTO will chose based on suitability for the apprentice. The trades include carpentry, electrical and plumbing but are not limited to just those areas. We have seen a demand for carpentry and electrical especially from both clients and candidates.
