Become a Host Employer

Master Builders SA endeavour to support our hosts during COVID-19 by working with them to ensure that they benefit from the Government Stimulus Packages available in keeping apprentices within industry.

Master Builders SA’s Group Training Organisation (GTO) provides professional apprentice management services to builders and contractors in South Australia, creating low risk employment and training opportunities for quality apprentices seeking a long term career in the Building and Construction Industry.

Hosting Master Builders Apprentices releases you from the need to administer employer obligations such as leave entitlements and superannuation, as well as removing the need for you to arrange off-the-job training (trade school) with a RTO and we can provide you with flexible hosting arrangements. Flexible hosting arrangements means you can have apprentices on short term or long term placements.

If you are interested in hosting a Master Builders Apprentice, simply complete our enquiry form below to express your interest and provide us with some initial information about your business and apprentice requirements.
