  • Posted on Thursday 7th, March 2019.

Recruitment and selection of suitable candidates for the 2019 VTA Cadetship Program is closing very shortly, according to Victorian Transport Association CEO, Peter Anderson.

The VTA, in partnership with Victoria University Polytechnic, has for the past seven years delivered a course that offers candidates the opportunity to progress career opportunities in transport and logistics.

“The 2019 VTA Cadetship Program is a unique blended learning program (in conjunction with Victoria University Polytechnic) that matches young, motivated individuals with specific transport and logistics companies with candidates receiving an accredited Certificate IV in Logistics on satisfactory completion of the course.

“The program gives candidates the chance to learn new skills, apply new knowledge in the workplace, network, create long-term commercial relationships and to build leadership skills,” he said.

The 2019 VTA Cadetship Program runs for 12 months, according to the VTA. Candidates are matched with a suitable company and complete a number of modal site visits.

Successful candidates receive a full-time employment position within a transport and logistics company; are paid an appropriate industry starting wage by the company; receive annual leave and other entitlements including superannuation; quality training; appropriate release from work to attend classes during the year; a program delivered through a ‘flexible blended learning’ approach and a learner-centred delivery method which includes face-to-face sessions, interactive exercises, peer-to-peer discussions and modal site visits; allocation of a company workplace mentor to assist throughout the duration of the program; and an invaluable broad knowledge of the transport and logistics industry.

The 2019 VTA Cadetship Program is available to young people in both metropolitan and regional Victoria. To be eligible for the program, the candidate must: be an Australian Citizen; and have Year 12 VCE/VCAL or equivalent education. A current driver’s licence and own transport is also preferred.
