Future Print says MEGT has become an important ally in matching printing apprentices with the training required to help printers meet the challenges of economic, demographic and technological change. John Scott, Future Print advisor for Queensland, says, “The ability to deliver the skilled workers to enable transition is an important pillar of the Future Print strategy and MEGT is a key partner in delivering that training under our competency-based apprenticeship model. “Partnerships with ACCs are critical to delivering the outcomes required by the industry. “We are delighted to be working with training partners like MEGT to deliver the Future Print competency-based apprenticeships which are so important to ensure businesses in our dynamic sector can meet the needs of a rapidly changing market.” The project has now passed its goal of attracting 200 new apprentices to the industry, and is sorting through the feedback received at its recent stakeholder summit.
