Apprenticeships worthwhile for businesses
Even in tough economic times, Karratha businesses continue to invest in training their workforce through apprenticeships and traineeships.
Recent data released by Apprenticeship Support Australia shows more than 318 businesses in Karratha have been assisted through its services to employ apprentices and trainees over the past five years.
Apprenticeship Support Australia manager Lena Constantine said she believed training staff offered many benefits for local business.
“Putting the time and effort into developing staff offers big rewards for local businesses,” she said.
Ms Constantine said there was plenty of support out there for local employers who were looking to employ an apprentice or trainee, or for those looking to implement a training program.
In these weaker economic conditions, when more people are looking for new opportunities, advertising for an apprentice or trainee role should attract motivated applicants who are ready to learn.
