Stories of NWDF achievers on display in new book
The Transport and Logistics Industry Skills Council (TLISC) has launched a first-of-its-kind publication, showcasing the National Workforce Development Fund (NWDF) and the positive impact it has had on the Transport and Logistics industry.
In presenting NWDF: The Stories to the guests at the inaugural TLISC Awards for Excellence, Mr Robin Shreeve, CEO of the Australian Workforce and Productivity Agency (AWPA) recommended the publication as a shining example of the ‘benefits of Government and employers shared commitment to employee development’.
In the contemporary magazine-style publication, TLISC have captured narratives of human achievement and corporate commitment across diverse sectors and geography.
Mr Shreeve recognised the critical importance of the Transport and Logistics Industry as a key enabler of every other industry sector.
“The impact of productivity gains in Transport and Logistics are demonstrated across the economy, and are a key component of Australia’s sustainable economic growth and prosperity,” said Mr Shreeve.
Among guests at the event held in Melbourne, were three of the nine organisations featured in “NWDF: The Stories”, including Brookfield Rail, Regional Express and the Australian Airports Association (AAA).
The NWDF is a major component of the Federal Government’s Skills Connect initiative, providing $667 million to industry to support and develop its workforce productivity.
TLISC CEO, Robert Adams explained the publication of the stories, which will also be strategically disseminated online, was part of TLISC’s marketing strategy to showcase the achievements of NWDF funding recipients.
“It is anticipated that (the publication) will encourage further uptake of NWDF opportunities within the industry,” said Mr Adams.
The NWDF is funded through to June 2015.
TLISC can support businesses and associations to identify current and future operational and workforce needs, and determine whether funding is accessible.
We encourage you to ask us about how the NWDF can work for your enterprise.
