Direction Employment and Training

Direction Employment Training Limited (DET) is Australia’s leading Group Training Organisation (GTO) that employs trainees and apprentices in all industry areas. DET is a community-based not-for-profit organisation dedicated to helping others find the dignity of work and to provide community service. We place our trainees and apprentices within successful companies where they can learn their preferred career. We have been operating for four years and our core business has been group training with a focus on traditional trainees and apprentices.

DET is the legal employer of apprentices and trainees who are then placed with host businesses for agreed periods of time. Whilst they are with their host employers, they will be taught the occupational skills in accordance with their career. Trainees and apprentices will have Vocational Education and Training (VET) training throughout this period where they will concentrate on the theoretical side of the industry to reinforce what is being learnt in the workforce.
