' MEGT has become a key partner in Queensland with Future Print, the print and graphic communication industry’s strategy to develop the skills and capabilities of businesses in the print and related communications, creative and information sectors.
A joint initiative by the Printing Industries Association of Australia (Printing Industries) and the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union, Future Print involves assisting businesses across the sector to effectively meet the challenges presented by rapid economic, demographic and technological change.
The ability to deliver the skilled workers necessary to enable transition is an important pillar of the strategy and MEGT is a key partner in delivering that training, with the Queensland cohort of 25 apprentices all training through a competency based benchmarked apprenticeship program piloted by Future Print.
John Scott, Future Print Advisor for Queensland, pictured with new Printing Apprentice Josh Baldwin from Maroochydore commercial printers Express Print and Mail, says partnerships with Australian Apprenticeship Centres are critical to delivering the outcomes required by the industry.
“We are delighted to be working with MEGT to ensure businesses in our dynamic sector have access to the quality training they require to meet the needs of a rapidly changing market.”
