The trainee program is the first of its kind being delivered on an Inland Rail project. It’s connecting young locals with mentoring from industry professionals as the trainees work towards obtaining a TAFE certificate in a specialised field relevant to the project.
Currently, seven locals have been recruited to assist onsite engineers with project administration and management duties while completing a Certificate IV in Project Management.
The program is being delivered in partnership with Apprentice Support Australia and TAFE Digital, enabling the trainees to gain practical on-the-ground experience by working full-time from the Trans4m Rail Moree project office.
The program is helping us to deliver a legacy that will last long after the track has been constructed, ensuring the participants will have the skills and qualifications to continue working in the industry or further their tertiary education.
If you’re interested in becoming a part of the project or finding out more about the program, visit the Trans4m Rail website.
