The Primary Industry Training Organisation unit standard costs are from $575 and will be negotiated at the time of application dependant on the course choices. SSCO will pay the 2/3 of the cost for your base units.This role will offer a minimum of 35 hours per week at minimum wage. The grower has the discretion to increase the level of wages and hours. You would need to make yourself available for longer hours when the opportunity arises.
This employer places cadets with the growers and provides guidance and encouragement during the 12-month period. PITO and the grower both support the cadet with hands-on training and any written learning. Although we accept applications year-round, we will be recruiting and interviewing for our Summer season this October. Part of this process is matching the cadet with the grower to ensure maximum positive results.
The desired outcome is that the cadet will be offered the opportunity for permanent employment or an apprenticeship in horticulture or viticulture. Apply now!
