Our people

Work & Training is Tasmania’s largest employer of trainees and apprentices and also the largest private provider of training and assessment in the state.  We would not be able to achieve this without the dedication, expertise and passion of our people, who number in excess of 40 state-wide.

Our people are experts in their respective fields and undertake continuous professional development to ensure that they are able to provide our clients with the most up-to-date information on current market trends and workforce development.

Our people take pride in being a valuable resource for business owners and managers in relation to this and also provide effective support to employees undertaking training and those seeking to enter the workforce.

As a Tasmanian not-for-profit entity, we are aware of our commitment to ensure that we are adding the greatest value to the community through providing pathways to employment across the state.  Our fantastic people are integral to our achievement of this.
