Boost Your Workforce with Skilled Apprentices: How Apprenticeships Are Us Can Help

Apprenticeships Are Us Ltd is a registered charity and not-for-profit that is committed to assisting young school leavers, disadvantaged youth, and the wider community (our beneficiaries) into and completing an apprenticeship in the automotive industry. Our unique group training organisation consists of automotive apprenticeship specialists working with the automotive industry to source apprenticeship opportunities for our beneficiaries. This means we can be more hands-on by regularly working with our Apprentices and their Host Businesses to ensure the satisfaction and well-being of both. You will find us at careers fairs, trade expos, State and Federal Government forums, vocational education and training working groups, and regular meetings with interested stakeholders.
