Hunter Valley Training Company (HVTC) Apprentices and Trainees

About apprenticeships and traineeships

An apprenticeship or traineeship is full-time or part-time employment that combines work and structured training. They’re a great way to learn and develop skills that will help set you up with a job and career for life.

RTO Apprenticeships

HVTC offer a range of apprenticeship courses and specialised training programs through their HVTC Skills Centre based at Rutherford, near Maitland. HVTC Skills Centre is a Registered Training Organisation delivering training through Hunter-V-Tec, a division of HVTC.

They specialise in electrical, mechanical and fabrication training, induction courses, safety training and additional short courses for Australian Industries.

GTO Apprenticeships and Traineeships

Apprenticeships last three to four years and are generally offered in the traditional trade industries, such as building and construction, metals and engineering, and electro-technology to name just a few. Throughout the duration of the apprenticeship, training is undertaken at a TAFE or other approved training providers (RTO).

Traineeships usually last one to two years and include occupations such as business administration (admin, accounts, HR, local govt. etc), retail, hospitality and more.

You can be sure our training programs are matched to industry needs and that the training suits your potential employer’s requirements.

As an apprentice or trainee you may be rotated through different host businesses during your period of contract which gives you a better opportunity to achieve each of the competencies needed in your chosen field.

Monitoring and Support

HVTC field staff carry out regular workplace monitoring visits, including counselling and personal support. Field Officers make sure all apprentices and trainees are receiving adequate training and are operating in safe work places.

Job Security

Once you gain an apprenticeship or a traineeship and work with your Host Employer should run out, HVTC will rotate you to another employer to continue your chosen training field.
