Training and Apprenticeships

Supplying Apprentices to the Mining Industry


SKILLED Group Training Services currently provides Mechanical and Electrical Apprentices to a leading supplier to the Mining Industry. We currently have 35 apprentices working with this supplier on a broad range of equipment and machinery used across mines in Australia.

The Challenge

SKILLED was engaged to meet our Client’s geographical needs nationally with critical requirements around regional and remote locations.  Consistency of delivery across this broad geographical area with one point of contact was required to underpin the achievement of productivity improvements.

The Solution

Our Client was particularly interested in the SKILLED systems used to support the apprentices and immediately rolled out SKILLED’s proprietary Workstream online time, attendance and pay system once the National agreement was signed. This provided a robust, automated and transparent system of costs for pay-rolling the apprentices.

The Results

Thanks to SKILLED, our Client has been able to manage these costs at their own branch level and maximise cost management strategies in a tight market.

SKILLED has also employed a number of Indigenous apprentices in various states and has worked with existing Indigenous companies already aligned with our Client to provide the best outcome for both Indigenous people and company operations.
