Since 2002, MAX Solutions (MAX) has delivered employment, health and training programs and placed hundreds of thousands of Australians into work, many were people from our most vulnerable communities. A large number of them remain in work today as a result of the dedication of our 1,700 person workforce. We continue to work with community partners, not for profit organisations and small businesses to deliver specialised services to vulnerable groups throughout Australia.
MAX is a fully compliant Registered Training Organisation (RTO) with the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) for all accredited training that we deliver. Our current status as a Registered Training Organisation is publicly available and can be viewed here
Recent media reports suggest that MAX is or has been non-compliant. This is simply not true. The full curriculum of accredited training and courses offered by MAX Solutions is fully compliant.
In 2016, MAX applied to add new vocational training courses to our curriculum. As part of the usual process, ASQA evaluated our application and determined our proposed courses required further preparation to satisfy the Authority’s robust compliance requirements. We decided not to move forward with those courses and do not offer them.
The ASQA process is essential to maintaining the strength of the Australian training system and the Authority’s independent oversight is routine for RTOs that want to expand the scope of courses they can offer.
We are dedicated to delivering the right skills and employment outcomes for our students, and we are very proud of the opportunity to further increase our help for migrants and people with low levels of English language skills through the support of Australian Government programs.
In 2016 Navitas English (Navitas) and MAX entered into a partnership to tender for the delivery of the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) and the Skills for Education and Employment (SEE) Program. The tender was a competitive process run by the Australian Government and open to organisations from the public, private and not-for-profit sector. The evaluation criteria for tenders included both an assessment of capacity, capability and price, with tender outcomes announced in April 2017. MAX, in partnership with Navitas, was successful to deliver both AMEP and SEE across a number of regions across Australia.
MAX is committed to the successful delivery of the AMEP and SEE programs and will have the appropriate facilities, qualified teachers and trainers necessary for the delivery of these programs. MAX, in conjunction with Navitas English, are experienced, qualified and equipped to deliver quality social and pre-employment English language training. MAX brings the additional skillset of being able to link students to employment should that be what the students are ultimately seeking.
We look forward to working collaboratively with the local settlement and community organisations and employers and industry to deliver a quality, supportive service for our students in regions where we will be delivering AMEP and SEE services.
