Apprentices requiring hosts

Public news

We have a number of apprentices across light vehicle, heavy vehicle, automotive body repair and automotive refinishing trades who are ready to be placed in automotive businesses. If you are looking to take on an apprentice to help meet demand, the MTA is your best bet.

Our apprentices have passed extensive interviews and are either currently undertaking or have completed their first eight weeks of training with us prior to starting with your business. MTA employed apprentices have been identified as having a passion for the industry and are keen to begin their automotive careers but they need real work experience and you need the help!

Hosting a MTA apprentice provides flexibility, with a dedicated MTA Field Officer to support both the apprentice and host employer, meaning you can get on with running your business.

Unless the South Australian automotive industry supports new apprentices, the skills crisis will not be resolved. Finding a fully qualified automotive technician now is a rare occurrence and businesses will continue struggling to fill these vacancies unless they take on more apprentices.
