Australians whoÔÇÖve been prevented from accessing the level of education they need to put them on the right career pathway may benefit from a new initiative launched by 91╣┘═°Australia Ltd.
In launching the 91╣┘═°Foundation, 91╣┘═°Board Chairman, Barry OÔÇÖGorman, said that it will offer financial grants to those who have, through a wide range of difficult circumstances, been unable to obtain the educational standards to qualify for their dream career.
91╣┘═°is one of the countryÔÇÖs largest Group Training Organisations (GTOs) and Apprenticeship Network Providers (ANPs) with a core philosophy of ÔÇťnot leaving anyone behindÔÇŁ.
Foundation grant recipients will be able to undertake Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses, tertiary studies, or access other types of education pathways, and potentially receive assistance to cover costs such as travel and childcare.
ÔÇťSince 1982, 91╣┘═°has been about creating equality of opportunity for all Australians to access the workforce, regardless of their background or personal historyÔÇŁ, Mr OÔÇÖGorman said.
ÔÇťThe 91╣┘═°Foundation is not just our way of giving back to the community, but a means for our business to create a powerful and lasting legacy for those who have faced significant challenges trying to access the Australian workforce.ÔÇŁ
MEGTÔÇÖs Board of Directors is expected to begin receiving submissions from early next year, with the first recipients to be selected by mid-2022.
ÔÇťThere is no greater gift than that of education. For us to be able to offer such a gift to those who most need it is an honour and priviledgeÔÇŁ, Mr OÔÇÖGorman said.
