Employment for Aboriginal Australians
MEGT has been involved with the employment and training of Indigenous apprentices and trainees across all divisions for the past 10 years.
In 2009 MEGT established the Indigenous Apprenticeship and Traineeship Network (IATN) which operates under the Group Training Division. The purpose of IATN is to provide real employment opportunities through the Group Training model for Indigenous people across all communities in Australia. This operational model provides culturally appropriate mentoring and support for both the employer and the Indigenous apprentice or trainee.
IATN has been managing both employment in mainstream organisations and projects throughout NSW, Queensland and Victoria and is looking to expand the operations to all states of Australia as well as increasing the services provided. Since the inception of IATN, 197 trainees and apprentices have commenced with approximately 70% successfully completing their qualification.

Our logo: 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.
WE HAVE SURVIVED.
