SUNRAYSIA MURRAY GROUP TRAINING AND MURRAY MALLEE TRAINING COMPANY MERGED ON 1ST JANUARY 2015.
Both non profit community based organisations are poised to merge to strengthen their services over a wide geographical area on 1st January 2015. Sunraysia Murray Group Training (SMGT) was formed in 1983 and started servicing the Swan Hill region in 1985 until they were able to set up a separate company Murray Mallee Training Company (MMTC) to be run by Geoff Carson.
Currently SMGT service Sunraysia, Swan Hill, Riverland, Adelaide and Melbourne regions. MMTC are servicing Swan Hill (Head Office), Mildura, Kerang, Deniliquin, Griffith, Leeton, Vermont, Huntingale, Newcastle, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne. In addition to this MMTC is a member of the AusNAC Consortium and delivers AAC services in Victoria, NSW and Australia wide for our national clients.
Both companies currently deliver accredited training services to apprentices, trainees, job seekers, disadvantaged groups and secondary schools.
With an increasingly competitive market place, SMGT and MMTC identified an opportunity to come back together again to streamline management and back office functions to achieve cost efficiency and continued affordable services for the community.
SMGT and MMTC have a vision to ensure that collectively they can continue to deliver:
• Affordable Group Training Services for the employment of apprentices and trainees to suit industry needs, provide security of employment and mentoring to apprentices and trainees and continue to achieve high completion rates.
• Local, accessible and affordable education and training services
• Services that are relevant and responsive to industry and community needs.
• Facilitation of community based programs tailored to encourage the participation of disadvantaged groups in education, training, employment and community engagement
Both companies will continue to trade as usual and look forward to working together in strengthening their services to the community.
