A special presentation morning acknowledged local apprentices and host employers when the Honourable Gayle Tierney, Minister for Vocational Education and Skills and Minister for Corrections visited Poyser Motor Group this morning.
The visit was part of the Apprenticeship Employment Network’s (AEN) mid-year conference.
CVGT Australia Deputy CEO John Lynch said the company was delighted to partner with AEN and Poyser Motor Group to acknowledge the contribution apprentices and host employers make to the Group Training program.
“CVGT has a long running relationship with Poyser Motor Group. Currently Poysers host 16 apprentices and trainees through our Group Training program.
“Like many of our host employers, the team at Poyser Motor Group have been very supportive of group training and have made a significant contribution to helping apprentices achieve their employment goals.
“With Poyser’s ongoing support, we have employed more than 100 apprentices over the last 25 ‘Poyser Motor Group and CVGT have been a partner in providing opportunities within Bendigo for over 25 years.
“CVGT welcomes Minister Tierney and AEN representatives to Bendigo for the AEN mid-year conference, and look we forward to the VET sector updates and information that will be shared at the forum,” Mr Lynch said.
Poyser Motor Group Dealer Principal Adam Poyser said that Group Training has provided the Poyser Motor Group with many opportunities and has kick-started the career of many current team members.
“Poyser Motor Group and CVGT have been a partner in providing opportunities within Bendigo for over 25 years.
“We are always happy to host apprentices through the assistance of CVGT and have found many dedicated, long-term team members through this process.
“We look forward to working together in the future to provide our local area with employment and training opportunities,” Mr Poyser said.
Under Group Training, CVGT employs the apprentice or trainee and hosts them to employers for the short or long term – host employers can return the apprentice or trainee if there is no ongoing work and CVGT will source another host employer opportunity. This commitment ensures the continuity of the training arrangement.
