ADVANTAGES OF NECA ELECTRICAL APPRENTICESHIPS
NECA Electrical Apprenticeships employ quality apprentices who have been recruited and are job prepared for you.
We offer apprentices across all years and many have completed additional training courses. All have completed OH&S training.
By becoming a host company you pay a fixed charge out rate, whilst we take on all the added costs, responsibility and risk.
You can take on an apprentice from 3 months to 4 years. And if you aren’t satisfied you don’t need to retain your apprentice. NECA Apprenticeships has a large pool of apprentices and will endeavour to supply one who meets your needs.
And if it works out for you, like it does for 90% of our host companies, it won’t cost you any extra to take your newly qualified employee on full time.
about Becoming a host
HOW TO BECOME A HOST TRAINER
Host Trainers are constantly sought to meet the needs of the scheme. Host Trainers must be suitable contractors who are able to provide the apprentice with appropriate supervision and training. They must operate their business in a safe and proper manner.
It’s easy to apply. Simply complete an application form on our website or give us a call. We will provide you with our hourly rates dependent on the individual host’s conditions and forward an agreement to you.
HOSTING AN APPRENTICE
Once you are registered as a Host Trainer a phone call is all that is necessary for us to arrange an apprentice. To ensure proper training for the apprentice, a period of approximately three months can be considered as a minimum allocation. Two week’s notice is all that is required to return an apprentice who is no longer needed.
The maximum period that an apprentice can remain with one Host Trainer varies widely and depends on the competency exposure and categories available in the different trade skills. Apprentices often remain with one Host Trainer for the duration of the apprenticeship.
NECA Group Training may also negotiate the movement of an apprentice to ensure appropriate exposure to the various skills required in the trade.
