Our 3 step guide

Are you an employer looking to put on a trainee?

 

Now is the perfect time, with government wage subsidies to offset your payroll costs, to invest in training young people and give someone an employment opportunity with the help of this initiative. A traineeship is typically a year-long program that combines two primary modes of training; on-the-job training, in classroom or online training for structured learning opportunities. Employment-based training is a great way to get your staff skilled! With METS your team will receive regular face to face visits by a professional and qualified METS trainer, providing training and assessment on site with personalised and quality support.

Boosting Apprenticeship Commencement (BAC)

 

To assist with the economic recovery from the impacts of COVID-19, the Commonwealth Government has announced an additional $1.2 billion to support businesses to employ 100,000 new apprentices and trainees. It is providing a wage subsidy to support employers establishing apprenticeships and traineeships. Under the Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements’ subsidies program, businesses of ANY size will qualify for a 50% wage subsidy on the gross wages paid to the apprentice / trainee, regardless of location, occupation or industry. They must undertake a Certificate II or higher qualification, and have a training contract that is formally approved by the state training authority.

 

Employers will be eligible for 50% of the wages for a new or recommencing apprentice or trainee for the period up to 30 September 2021, up to $7,000 per quarter. The subsidy is available for wages paid from 5 October 2020 to 30 September 2021. Payments will be made quarterly in arrears, with first claims for the subsidy available from 1 January 2021. Final claims for payment must be lodged by 31 December 2021.

Unique Student Identifier (USI)

Everyone undertaking a nationally-recognised vocational education and training (VET) qualification in Australia needs a Unique Student Identifier (USI). Anyone who is thinking about doing a VET course can also get a USI.

WHAT'S A USI?

A USI is like an account number with 10 numbers and letters. It looks something like this: 3AW88YH9U5.

 

It allows you to access a transcript of records for all the vocational education and training qualifications that you achieve from 1 January 2015 onwards. This is useful if you’re asked to provide your training records when applying for a job or enrolling in other courses.

 

You only need one USI, and it’s yours for life.

DO I NEED A USI FOR SMART AND SKILLED TRAINING?

Under Smart and Skilled, you will need to give your USI to us when you enrol in your Smart and Skilled course.

 

We will also ask for your consent to give State Training Services (STS) access to your USI. This enables STS to view your training profile to validate your eligibility for Smart and Skilled training and your fees. You will have to go to your USI account at the USI Registry to do this.

HOW DO I APPLY FOR A USI?

If you do not already have a USI when you enrol into training with METS, we will assist you by applying for a USI on your behalf!

If you’re not eligible for government funded training, we offer other training options, including fee-for-service traineeships and self-funded study.
