Applications for the VET Trainer Scholarship are now open according to the Motor Trades Association of Queensland (MTA QLD).
Launched back in 2021 to help address the industry’s skill shortage, the VET Trainer Scholarship provides two ambitious technicians the opportunity to undertake a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40122).
Designed to teach the skills and knowledge to deliver training in the vocational education and training sector, participants will learn skills in designing, conducting, and assessing, while also receiving knowledge in how to facilitate and evaluate the impacts of various programs.
Each round, one female and one male candidate will have the chance to undertake the highly-sought after course and take the next step in their career.
“MTA QLD is committed to progressing the careers of those within the automotive industry, and we are extremely pleased to continue this scholarship offering into 2023,” said MTA Group CEO, Rod Camm.
“Especially with the ongoing shortage of skilled labour, it is fantastic to see such strong interest from industry looking to grow professionally and take on new opportunities.”
The scholarship is open to all Queensland-based, trade-qualified automotive professionals who possess at least five years post-apprenticeship experience in any of the following automotive areas – light vehicle, heavy vehicle, auto electrical, motorcycle, mobile plant, agricultural, parts interpreting, outdoor power equipment, automotive body repair & refinishing, and underbody.
Applications for the VET Trainer Scholarship close COB 28 February 2023.
