The 2017 VTA Academy Transport Cadetship Program- Currently Open but Closing Soon

The Victorian Transport Association training Academy Cadetship Program is a unique blended learning program that matches fifteen young and motivated individuals with specific transport companies and delivers a Certificate IV in Transport and Logistics.

In partnership with Victoria University this distinctive course gives the individual the opportunity to continue work responsibilities and still study for an industry qualification, with little interruption to either entity. The blended learning program enables the individual to study at their own pace and in their own environment.

One of the many benefits for the employer is the significantly reduced cost and financial support from the current Victorian Government while the VTA Academy manages all of the administrative and communication elements.
