MAX Employment was recently awarded a Vocational Training & Employment Centre (VTEC)
contract by the Australian Government. As part of the contract, MAX will provide training and guaranteed job outcomes for Indigenous people in Kalgoorlie and the eastern regions of Western Australia.
MAX Employment Managing Director, Deborah Homewood said it was a great honour to be awarded the VTEC contract.
“MAX Employment is committed to providing increased and more effective training and employment opportunities for Indigenous people, so to be entrusted to do this through VTEC is a great honour. MAX has been delivering employment and training services to the Kalgoorlie region for five years. We look forward to utilising our employer connections, local knowledge and strong community partnerships to benefit VTEC participants.”
VTEC is funded by the Australian Government and is based on the GenerationOne
employment model. The programme has a unique structure, offering job seekers a wraparound service and training with a guaranteed job at the end.
“The VTEC model is based on strong collaboration between participants, employers, training providers and local Indigenous communities,”
said Ms Homewood.
“As part of the programme, we will be working closely with the local mining industry to create job opportunities. At MAX we believe that jobs have the power to change lives, so we look forward to empowering Indigenous people through their chosen career pathway.”
