Metrohub to provide new job and training opportunities for Victoria
Holmesglen affirmed its commitment to skills and training at the official launch of MetroHub, the jobs and training centre for the Metro Tunnel Project.
The new hub is a partnership between Cross Yarra Partnership, a consortium led by Lendlease, John Holland and Bouygues Construction, and Holmesglen, which will see workers on the tunnels and stations package receive professional development opportunities on-campus.
The Metro Tunnel Project will create nearly 7,000 jobs. The tunnels and stations package will create 5,000 of those jobs, including 500 apprentices, trainees and engineering cadets all supported and facilitated by MetroHub.
“This is going to be a thriving centre of activity; as every day we make strong progress on this important public transport project,” said Minister for Industry and Employment Ben Carroll.
Holmesglen’s Chief Executive, Mary Faraone, reinforced the training opportunities MetroHub will offer Victorians, specifically with job- outcomes.
“We’re really excited about the prospect of this hub for recruitment and training. We hope to leave a legacy for future infrastructure projects,” she said.
Holmesglen’s Skills and Job Centre will also help provide specialised employment support.
The Institute will:
• Support the completion of training programs
• Work in alignment with the Project Workforce Development and Training Management Plan
• Provide a mix of classroom, simulated and workplace learning delivery modes.
