Employers of Gforce Strategies 4 Excellence school-based trainee’s are making a valuable contribution to developing a local student's career pathway, and gain valuable insight into a future workforce.

As a host employer, you will gain a valuable team member who will be placed with you for a minimum of 7 hours per week in order to fulfill the work placement requirement of their school-based traineeship. A school-based traineeship enables Year 11 and 12 students to combine school, part-time employment and training in order to achieve a nationally recognised qualification.
