Become an HGT apprentice or trainee
HGT arranges on-the-job training for apprentices and trainees while they gain a nationally recognised qualification in hospitality.
Apprentices/trainees learn their skills while working for ‘host employers’. Host employers could be hotels, restaurants, cafés,
motels or similar establishments.
HGT currently provides employees for over 100 host employers across South Australia and employs over 200 apprentices and trainees at any given time. HGT recruits for these roles all year round.

How HGT’s hospitality training works
During a traineeship you will study Certificate III in Hospitality or as an apprentice you’ll study a Certificate III in Hospitality (Commercial Cookery). Being a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), HGT will deliver your training. To do this, apprentices and trainees attend practical training sessions and HGT consultants regularly visit host employers for assessment and workbook delivery.
The cost to you
There may be some costs that trainees and apprentices need to cover such as uniforms, tools (such as a knife kit), and training costs (such as training fees or text books). Some of the equipment you’ll need is available for purchase through HGT. Also, if you’re successful in gaining an apprenticeship with HGT, you may be eligible for funding assistance from the government to help you with these costs.
To be eligible for an apprenticeship/traineeship, you must be an Australian Resident. In addition, both HGT and each host employer have further criteria that need to be met. To find out more about these criteria, contact us or call 08 8100 1900.
