Key Issues —

The Queensland Training Awards took place on 14 September 2019 and saw some big wins for independent providers and ITECA members.  The Training Awards recognise the best in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector for their contribution to vocational training and providing students and employers with quality outcomes. 

ITECA member, MTA Institute at Eight Mile Plains, was awarded 'Small Training Provider of the Year'.  MTA Institute is the largest private registered training organisation for automotive apprenticeships and traineeships in Queensland.  It offers a full suite of nationally accredited automotive qualifications, short courses and school-based programs. The MTA Institute provides direct industry and employer links, ensuring skills and experience are aligned to industry requirements. This direct connection allows the MTA Institute to facilitate the best possible employment outcomes for students.

Another ITECA member, Tec-NQ, supported the 2019 School-based Apprentice or Trainee of the Year, Luke Fraley.  In accepting the award, Luke noted that when it came time to decide what to do as a career, he didn't have to think twice.  A keen student in the classroom as well as under the bonnet, Luke's school-based apprenticeship gives him a head start on his dream job while finishing his Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).

The winners will now compete in their respective categories at the Australian Training Awards in Brisbane on 21 November 2019.

There are more than 850 independent vocational education providers in Queensland. The 2019 State of the Sector Report shows that collectively these independent providers support more than 76% of the 896,400 students resident in an Australian VET program in that state.
