The CVGT Employment story

CVGT Employment was formed in 1983, when councils surrounding Bendigo responded to a survey on youth unemployment skill shortages. Young people needed to be actively employed while learning the trade skills for their chosen fields. Employment services provider Central Victoria Group Apprenticeship Scheme was formed. We have grown to be known as CVGT Employment.

We had humble beginnings, employing one person, who rode a bicycle around Bendigo to monitor the progress of his 12 apprentices. Since then the business has grown from strength to strength. Today we employ more than 380 people in a diverse range of employment programs and specialties across New South Wales, Tasmania and Victoria.

The 128 CVGT locations provide a variety of programs to meet the needs and challenges faced by those seeking to secure employment and staff. Our professional support for your journey is available at these sites, so come visit us today!
