BGT employ Apprentices and Trainees and then place them with Host Employers who simply manage the day to day running of the employee.

Then BGT manage the rest of the Employee’s management process.

Providing skills and qualifications needed to gain or maintain quality jobs through flexible and focused training programs.

We continue to focus on turning lives around, and offering young people education or employment opportunities.

A dedicated facility specifically designed to provide quality one-on-one tuition that thoroughly prepares participants with the key skills required for the manufacturing and engineering industries.


BGT has been a story of continued success for over thirty years. In 1986 we began with a philosophy of providing young people with employment opportunities to reach their full potential and to provide employers with well skilled and suitable staff. While today, we offer a much broader range of services, our original philosophy remains as strong as ever to create positive life-stories for our local youth and the wider community.

Like many careers, ours is a story of change, determination and most of all growth. BGT now provide various entry level qualifications, employment and assistance programs to all members of our local community.

We’re extremely proud to have helped write, and in some cases rewrite, the story of so many local people’s lives by providing the critical assistance, knowledge, and employment early on, so that their career can deliver the outstanding personal success that so many of our graduates enjoy.

Care and professionalism at every turn.

Our services are provided by a dedicated and professionally trained team who are passionate about their work. And all BGT staff undergo extensive recruitment processes including interviews, reference checks, police checks and working with children checks.

If you are interested in our services and would like to find out more, please call 5333 8600 or email or you can always visit us at our offices and training facilities at 14 Hill Street, Ballarat

We invite you to write your next chapter, in our great story.

I am completing a Certificate in Education Support at BGT.

They provide the understanding and encouragement to achieve my goals. Teaching is adaptable to nurture all learners, and students feel comfortable to share ideas and concerns. We have fun in class and laugh as we learn.  I have gained increased confidence and the knowledge I need to gain employment. Thankyou BGT,
I am on my way.

Reconnect have helped me a lot in the past couple of days in organising my career plan. They are still helping me, especially with helping me to organise my enrolment in a Diploma of Community Services.



At BGT we‘ve been thoroughly preparing people for the manufacturing and engineering industries by teaching key skills in metalwork, engineering, fabrication and welding.

I know I am part of
something special working
