GROW Program

[Vision: Split screen - GROW - a Training for the Future Initiative]

David - GROW Program participant

What appeals to me about transport is that actually it is a very huge industry.

It is an industry which fits everyone regardless of what disability you have come from ranging from engineering, to business, to management whatever, this industry can fit you in.

Duy - Senior Project Officer, Level Crossing Removal Authority

Training for the Future is a Victorian Government initiative to address the skills gaps that are about to hit rail and infrastructure due to the unprecedented amount of work taking place in Victoria now and over the next 10 years.

The GROW Program is designed to help achieve this goal.

[Vision: Duy speaking]

The aim of the GROW Program is to really help some of our most underrepresented community groups, so new and emerging communities, refugees and asylum seekers, those from other marginalised backgrounds.

[Vision: Night works - time lapse of rail construction]

The GROW Program is really there to provide an opportunity and an entry point into rail and transport.

Atem - GROW Program participant

But it’s good to be given more opportunity to apply what you have learned and be rewarded in some sort of way, and be able to contribute to society at the end.

[Vision: People at GROW session - David talking with others]

By attending this session I really believed that I would be tapping into what opportunities are available in the sector.

[Vision: People discussing matters at session - David speaking]

It will benefit me a lot for my future and my future career in this industry.

[Vision: Duy speaking]

Of the 15 people who undertook the pilot program two weeks ago, six have already gone for interviews, of which two have been successful and commenced work.
