Being a Host Employer

There are over 500 different apprenticeships and traineeships available in WA. Whether it’s trade and technical personnel, your office staff or your customer service team, there’s bound to be more than one that suits your business.

There is also more than one way that Directions can help and support your business in building the skilled team it needs to succeed. From a fully supported apprenticeship/traineeship program to one of our modularised services, we can custom tailor a solution that has the flexibility to evolve over time with your business’ changing needs.

Directions’ fresh approach to apprentice and trainee employment and training is about developing the solution that makes sense for you. As a community based registered charity, we aim to set new standards in customer service and support. It’s not about numbers or profits for us; it’s about results.

Together we can help you manage your workforce needs now and into the future. And in working with us you help us support our community through our benevolent programs and activities.

Workplace health and safety is a key priority for Directions and we work with the apprentice and host employer to ensure that all Directions apprentices and trainees not only stay safe but also contribute to the safety culture in your workplace. It is unlawful to provide an unsafe workplace and Directions staff are constantly updated on changes to workplace health and safety legislation and are trained in providing risk assessment and general advice to employers. In addition to working to ensure the wellbeing of everyone in the workplace, a high standard of health and safety practice will:
  • optimise your productivity
  • reduce or eliminate lost time and costs due to injury
  • support host company compliance with legislation and regulation
  • build a better safety culture in your business
