Apprentice Management Program

MRAEL’s Apprentice Management Program (AMP) is designed for businesses who wish to be the legal employer of their apprentices and trainees, with the peace of mind of having access to MRAEL’s apprentice management expertise.

Our AMP services are flexible and provide employers with as much support as they need from a dedicated MRAEL Field Officer.

Our AMP program is the ideal solution for employers who prefer to manage their apprentices and trainees in-house, but would like access to help if they need it, such as during busy periods or when your administrative staff are on leave. MRAEL’s Apprentice Management Program is a cost effective and stress-free way to ensure your apprentices and trainees are always looked after.

The key benefits of MRAEL’s Apprentice Management Program are:

Choose the services you need from MRAEL, and leave out those you don’t. We can facilitate recruitment, selection, retention, performance, training and apprentice/trainee wellbeing.

Financial benefits
As the legal employer of your apprentices and trainees, you accept ownership of all legal responsibilities such as recruitment and payroll, and you also receive any requisite government financial incentives.

Support when you need it

No contracts
There are no contracts or obligations to MRAEL, and you can use the AMP service for as long as you need and cancel with one month’s notice.
