  • Bringing New Blood into the TCF Sector
    Hearing comments like
    “Our ‘young’ machinists are 45!” and ‘Cutters’ are like hens teeth!” from people out there in industry made Meriel Chamberlin realise that there was a desperate need to get some new blood flowing through the TCF manufacturing sector.
    Meriel, the TFIA Performance and Procurement Cluster host has teamed her cluster up with Brian Doyle from Career Keys to make a fully funded apprenticeship and traineeship program available to Queensland businesses.
    This means that businesses based in Queensland will now have the opportunity to build skills and capacity within their own company and the TCF industry without having to take on the traditional commitment that goes along with a trainee.
    To access this trainee program each business must have a certified supervisor for their trainee, no matter how much experience a potential supervisor may have it needs to be official. Creative Industries Skills Council (QLD) has stepped in to help source some funding through the Strategic Investment Fund to make this happen.

    Businesses can now access 70% Subsidised training for current workers.

    To access subsidised training businesses must register any owners and /or employees by July 31st 2013 and the training must be completed by December 31st 2013. Subsidised places are limited and will be offered on a first in first served basis.
    Career Keys and the TFIA Performance & Procurement Cluster, are working closely with Creative Industries Skills Council (QLD) and TCF Connect are working closely together to bring these new flexible and SME friendly opportunities businesses.

    To get more information about this program and download application forms visit the TFIA Performance & Procurement Cluster page.
