Hessel Group Training Organisation (Hessel GTO) makes it simple for businesses to take on trainees.

Whether you need to fill a skills gap or meet peak workloads we have enthusiastic trainees ready to learn and excel within your organisation.

We specialise in managing traineeships for the social care sector including aged care, disability support, home and community living and early childhood education and care. We also have business administration and trainer/assessor trainees working across many sectors in South Australia.

We place Hessel GTO trainees with host employers where they can take their nationally recognised training and skills into the work place and gain the practical experience to enhance their learning.

While organisations can build their skilled workforce pipeline with trainees learning from their experienced staff.

What is a Group Training Organisation?

As a Group Training Organisation (GTO) we employ trainees and place them with organisations to be their host employer.

We take care of the host employer's contractual and administrative responsibilities including recruitment, payroll, superannuation and annual leave. Hessel GTO provides full circle support for both the trainee and the host employer during the traineeship.

We help businesses fill skill gaps and trainees to make a successful transition into the workforce, commencing a rewarding career.
