Funding win for apprenticeship
To address the skills and labour shortages that have dogged the composites industry for many years, Composites Australia, along with Manufacturing Skills Australia, developed a trade qualification for the composites industry. Skills Victoria has deemed the qualification a fully subsidised ($12.50 per hour) apprenticeship. The course is delivered by GO TAFE and also the Gordon: Advanced Manufacturing and Composite Centre (AMACC).
