Nominations Open For 2023 MTA Queensland VET Trainer Scholarship

The Motor Trades Association of Queensland (MTA Queensland) has opened applications for the VET Trainer Scholarship, which provides two ambitious technicians the opportunity to undertake a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40122), valued at up to $2500.

In each round, one female and one male candidate will have the chance to undertake the course and take the next step in their career.

“MTA Queensland is committed to progressing the careers of those within the automotive industry, and we are extremely pleased to continue this scholarship offering into 2023,” said Rod Camm, MTA Group CEO. “Especially with the ongoing shortage of skilled labour, it is fantastic to see such strong interest from industry looking to grow professionally and take on new opportunities.”

The scholarship is open to all Queensland-based, trade-qualified automotive professionals who possess at least five years post-apprenticeship experience in automotive body repair and refinishing, light vehicle, heavy vehicle, auto-electrical, motorcycle, mobile plant, agricultural, parts interpreting, outdoor power equipment, and underbody.

Applications close at close of business on 28 February 2023.

Launched in 2021 to help address the industry’s skill shortage, the VET Trainer Scholarship is designed to teach the skills and knowledge required to deliver training in the vocational education and training sector. Participants learn to design, conduct, and assess training, in addition to facilitating and evaluating the impacts of various programmes.
