Message from the CEO
We are pleased to be celebrating our 23rd year at ACBC. Over this time we have helped thousands of people shape, launch and advance their careers. Although we have faced challenges over the past three years as the government has changed how it supports VET students, we still continue to believe in the crucial role vocational education and training plays in Australia.
Over the past two years, we’ve helped hundreds of unemployed young people gain job-seeking and workplace skills through the Youth Jobs PaTH Employability Skills Training program. We have also been making it possible for high school students gain a VET qualification and workplace skills through our growing EVET program. More recently, we have been offering School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SBAT) and are quickly becoming the preferred provider.
We continue to work with businesses and their employees through traineeships. These create win-win outcomes by enabling employees to get a qualification and new skills that they bring into their workplaces.
This year, we were excited to welcome the first international students to ACBC.
We couldn’t have come this far without the support of so many people, including our students, support staff, trainers and alumni. We also appreciate the support of our community. Local high schools and their careers advisors have welcomed us into their schools and trusted us in providing education and training. In addition, we are grateful to the business and government leaders who have supported us for more than two decades.
Thank you for making it possible for us to provide empowerment through education and training over the past 23 years.
