Training alliance announced between MTC Australia & Hornsby Ku-Ring-Gai Community College

| May 8, 2015

Not-for-profit organisations MTC Australia and Hornsby Ku-Ring-Gai Community College are working together to deliver a range of Vocational Education qualifications to support English language clients.


Clients who are enrolled in the Skills for Education and Employment program (SEE) at MTC Australia, where they learn language and numeracy skills, will also be able to enrol in a range of qualifications at Hornsby Ku-Ring-Gai Community College and complete the qualifications concurrently.


MTC Australia Hornsby SEE Centre Manager Yu Dai said that the alliance is a very innovative approach to training and would be incredibly useful for students.


“The alliance involves two Registered Training Organisations working together to help clients overcome multiple barriers, including Literacy and Numeracy, and complete a Certificate II.


“Without the support of the SEE program, the majority of the clients would not be able to complete their qualification.


“We look forward to working with Hornsby Ku-Ring-Gai Community College to give our students the opportunity to increase their chances of finding employment."


Hornsby Ku-Ring-Gai Community College Inc. Principal LesleBurt said it is a wonderful opportunity for Hornsby Community College to work with another like-minded and nurturing organisation.  


"I agree with Yu Dai that this partnership is aninnovative approach of integrated training which enables clients to gain two qualifications. Our course will cover computer and basic workplace skills. The students are the real winners.


"I look forward to starting our joint venture.


The MOU signing took place at the Hornsby Ku-Ring-Gai Community College Hornsby, Level 1, 45 Hunter Street Hornsby, NSW, 2077 on Tuesday 5/05/2015 at 11am.
