To counter local training shortages and demand for skilled tradespeople in Adelaide and Geelong, Sarina Russo Apprenticeships aims to attract more and more people, into a trade career.

Mr Steve Wyborn, CEO, Sarina Russo Apprenticeships said an Australian Apprenticeship is a first-rate career option which delivers professional, financial and personal rewards.

“We must persuade young people, their parents and teachers that an apprenticeship is a first rate career option and can be a stepping stone to owning your own business or progressing through to senior management positions.

“Under-represented groups such as mature workers, women and people with a disability must not be forgotten and we are able to help them reach their career goals.

“Skills are a key driver of economic growth and there is a need for a more proactive approach to growing the apprenticeship market.

“Apprenticeships provide locals with the satisfaction of earning money, the opportunity for greater independence and increased self-esteem.

“Sarina Russo Apprenticeships also works directly with employers to identify the range of support options available when taking on an Australian Apprentice.

“It is important employers are aware of the free on-going services provided by Sarina Russo Apprenticeships.

“We register new Australian Apprentices, pay employer incentives and Australian Apprenticeship allowances, assist with training options and help businesses complete and lodge all the necessary paperwork.

“It’s understandable many employers focus on the $4,000 government incentives when it comes to hiring an Australian Apprenticeships but when you look at the opportunities to reduce staff turnover and increase productivity, $4000 benefit is just the tip of the iceberg.

“It’s important we recognise the importance of employers because everyday they provide a better future for millions of Australians through inspiration, education and the creation memories, confidence, mateship, and careers,” Mr Wyborn said.
