MTA NSW Partners With Training Services NSW On Cobham Youth Justice Centre Initiative

The Motor Traders’ Association of New South Wales has collaborated with Training Services NSW to provide training opportunities for young people in custody at the Cobham Youth Justice Centre.

Several MTA trainers were involved with a paint and body repair workshop, providing knowledge and mentorship throughout the session. The collaboration and workshop also resulted in a job offer outside of the detention centre for a talented individual, having demonstrated outstanding ability.

Receiving TV news coverage from Channel 7, the Pultand ETU Trade School received a donated, brand-new Mazda MX-5 engine. Housed within the facility’s new trade centre, the engine will be used for hands-on training, equipping young people with practical skills that can lead to future employment.

“This collaboration is a shining example of how industry partnerships, training programs, and instilling self-belief can have a transformative impact on the lives of young people,” said the MTA NSW.

“Not only are we supporting youth who are in need of better future prospects, but this is also part of our wider mission to alleviate the current skills shortage. It was with great pleasure to have been a part of such a meaningful project, and we look forward to continuing our community support.”
