BGT is a not for profit community based company established in 1986 to develop and grow the Group Training model in the Ballarat region.
Over that time approximately 3500 apprentices and trainees have completed their qualifications with BGT in Ballarat.
The concept of group training, that BGT uses, arose about 20 years ago.It provides a very effective mechanism to support young apprentices and trainees through their training and provides an opportunity to begin their career in their chosen industry.
The BGT group training model also provides an option for candidates to rotate to another employer in times of hardship and distress, when their apprenticeship is suspended due to lack of work, out of trade, out of work or in positions of difficulty with an employer.
BGT manages all of the costs and administration associated with managing an apprentice or trainee saving the business time and money.
