Tender win to keep service busy
IT'S that time when apprenticeship service providers begin to frantically bite their nails and hope the government is kind in it's selection of Australian Apprenticeships Centre tenders.
The Southern Downs will again have the privilege of working with Busy at Work Apprenticeship Services and industry training consultant Donna Howard said she was thrilled to be part of the winning three tenders.
"We are the biggest AAC in Queensland and of the three current tenders, we were the only ones who won our tender back," Ms Howard said.
She said Busy at Work would strive to keep its tender and ensure its clients were happy.
"We'll remain the biggest AAC in Queensland and strive to deliver excellent service to our clients," Ms Howard said.
It also won the tender for a mentoring program, which seeks to improve apprenticeship retention rates through support and targeted mentoring assistance.
Busy at Work also claimed the tender for the Advisers Program, which targets the mining sector and the dispersal of apprenticeships to these areas.
The other two companies to win tenders in southern Queensland were MEGT Australia Limited and MRAEL Limited.
The current apprenticeships with the two former AACs will be dispersed among these two and so the ongoing traineeships and apprenticeships will continue.
