Statement of Commitment
MEGT has been involved in the training and employment of Indigenous Australians through our Group Training division for many years, and in facilitating the direct employment of over 6,800 Indigenous Australians as Apprentices and Trainees through our Australian Apprenticeship Support Network.
MEGT established a dedicated Indigenous Group Training operation, the Indigenous Apprenticeship and Traineeship Network (IATN) to consolidate all MEGT activities relevant to Indigenous Australians under the one framework. MEGT will continue to work towards increasing opportunities for sustainable and ongoing employment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, including yet not limited to; within MEGT as a whole, and apprenticeships and traineeships.
MEGT is committed to the development of an organisational Reconciliation Action Plan and will progress through this process with consultations involving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, Reconciliation Australia, the wider Australian community and MEGT staff across all levels of the organisation, as well as external Indigenous stakeholders.

Our symbol: about the artist
Sonja Hodge is the artist for the design of the MEGT Indigenous Apprenticeship & Traineeship Network logo.
I was born on Yamatji land in Meekatharra W.A. My mob are the Lardil people of the Gununa (Mornington Island in the Gulf of Carpentaria).
My artworks are about the beginnings of life, the connections we have to the land, the environment that we belong to and also the monumental struggles we have gone through as a people, as a mob.
