HOST AN APPRENTICE

In a nutshell

Under this arrangement, ATNZ will provide a full suite of expert support services from recruitment through to completion at a price which reflects standard employee oncosts. Our fee is only charged on ordinary hours and covers all training fees and costs

The apprentice is employed and managed by ATNZ, allowing hosts to focus on developing their businesses.

Why choose this option?

ATNZ has access to a large pool of quality candidates from which we draw and find the right apprentice for the right company. However, the right fit, preparation and support are vital to attracting the right people and reducing attrition.

ATNZ employ the apprentice, which de-risks the employment relationship for the host company. As a result, we give host employers the advantage of fit-for-purpose staffing without the concern of long-term contracts. Management of the Apprentice remains the responsibility of ATNZ, yet after the training, the host company are free to employ the apprentice directly.

ATNZ creates genuine efficiencies for our host companies in recruitment, payroll and health and safety management. For example, a hosting company only pays for the hours an apprentice works in or on their business.

  • Enrolment in ATNZ as an NZQA Registered PTE.

EMPLOY YOUR OWN APPRENTICE

In a nutshell

Where engineering and manufacturing companies prefer to maintain their employment relationships with apprentices, the mentoring and support provided in an ATNZ-managed apprenticeship still add significant value for the employing company and the apprentice. 

Why choose this option?

Where companies are structured to manage employment relationships with their staff well, it may be preferable for them to employ them directly. However, even in this situation, an ATNZ-managed apprenticeship can still give you the best outcome for your business.

While you maintain the employment relationship, we manage the apprentice’s development and training. In addition, your apprentice will receive an unparalleled ten visits from a dedicated Account Manager in your workplace each year.

Many engineering companies report that these high levels of support result in superior outcomes regarding apprentice completion rates, productivity and workplace harmony.
