Announcing their official partnership, Australian Industry Trades College and BUSY At Work, will continue to work together to support career opportunities for young persons, employment outcomes and industry skills development in Queensland.
At an official launch this week at Cleveland, BUSY At Work has officially announced their preferred partnership agreement with Australian Industry Trade College (AITC). The announcement comes after a 12 year relationship between the two organisations where they have remained dedicated to developing skills and career opportunities for young people in Queensland.
Australian Industry Trade College offers Year 10, 11 and 12 students the opportunity to finish their schooling while beginning a trades career through an apprenticeship or traineeship. With a 99% Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) completion rate and with 90% of graduating students entering secure career pathways through paid apprenticeships or traineeships, AITC has been a Queensland success story for many years now and has five campuses throughout Southeast Queensland, including the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Redlands, Toowoomba and Ipswich.
“The Australian Industry Trade College/ BUSY At Work partnership is an initiative ahead of its time. When industry becomes directly involved in the educational and employment outcomes for young people we are witnessing real leadership”, Mark Hands, CEO of Australian Industry Trades College stated.
BUSY At Work is a natural fit to partner with AITC, being the largest Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (ASSN) services provider in Queensland (they also deliver AASN services in WA). With over 40 years’ experience in recruitment and skills support in Queensland and the management of various programs nationwide, BUSY At Work is dedicated to improving career outcomes and skills for industry in Australia.
BUSY At Work will have three dedicated account managers to service the five AITC campuses, assisting students to transition into apprenticeships or traineeships and the sign-up requirements for these, including inductions with the host employers.
“BUSY At Work is extremely pleased to form a preferred partnership with AITC which will enable us to holistically support more career opportunities for young people in Queensland and skills development for industry”, Managing Director for BUSY At Work, Paul Miles, stated.
