Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements

The Australian Government has released the Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements initiative, which provides a 50% wage subsidy to employers for new or recommencing apprentices and trainees (from 5th October 2020).

As a Group Training Organisation, Golden West Apprenticeships employs apprentices and trainees and hosts them with local business. This 50% wage subsidy is passed onto your business for every eligible apprentice or trainee you engage through Golden West.

Western Truck Group has been using Golden West for several years. Our experience with Golden west and Nikki has been refreshingly different from many of my experiences hiring staff. Nikki is always responsive to any questions I have; she keeps me informed and she understands what our business is and what we are trying to achieve. I recommend Golden West and Nikki highly and would use their services again without hesitation.
