The GROW program seeks to introduce people from marginalised or disadvantaged backgrounds – including asylum seekers, refugees and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people – to training and employment opportunities in the transport and construction industries.

An initiative of the Level Crossing Removal Authority, in consultation with Metro Trains Melbourne, GROW forms part of the Victorian Government’s Training for the Future program.

What can participants expect?

During the five-day program, participants receive practical, job-ready training to help them gain competency and employment in the transport and construction industries. This includes accreditation for:

  • Train Track Safety Awareness
  • Construction White Card.

After completing the program, the program supports participants to network with program partners and apply for roles with those organisations directly.

Job opportunities can include:

  • engineering roles
  • project management roles
  • graduate positions
  • civil constructions
  • labouring
  • entry level roles.

Program partners

  • Transdev (bus and driver)
  • Metro Trains Melbourne (MTM)
  • Metro Academy
  • Bombardier (build our trains)
  • Yarra Trams
  • V-Line

When does the program run?

After the pilot program was delivered with great success in October 2017, we intend to run the program monthly depending on feedback and demand.

The next program will run from 27 November 2017 to 2 December 2017.
