Apprentice Employment Program

Apprentice Employment Program

The MRAEL Apprentice Employment Program (AEP) provides a streamlined and effective way to manage apprentices and trainees from commencement to completion. As the legal employer, MRAEL are responsible for all of the legal and statutory obligations that come with employing an apprentice or trainee. MRAEL will facilitate the recruitment, selection, retention, payroll, performance and training management and will monitor the workplace health and safety and overall wellbeing of each apprentice and trainee. Our services are flexible and allow you as the Partner Organisation, to have as much input into the apprentice management as you would like.

Let MRAEL take on the multitude of regulatory and legal responsibilities that come with employing an apprentice or trainee by becoming an MRAEL Partner Organisation. MRAEL will manage the entire process for you, allowing you the time and resources to focus on other areas of your business! If you would prefer to remain the legal employer of your apprentices and trainees, MRAEL can still assist by providing our best practice apprentice and trainee management services with our Apprentice Management Program.

The key benefits of the Apprentice Services’ Apprentice Employment Program are:

  • 01 Recruitment:MRAEL’s recruitment process is designed to ensure the highest quality candidates are selected. Our process can be tailored to meet each organisation’s individual requirements, incorporating advertising, short-listing, interviews, testing, medicals, reference checks, inductions and job readiness.
