Winner of the Industry Collaboration Award Australian Training Awards

Presented by the Australian Government to SPC in collaboration with AMWU and the National Food Institute

Traditionally on opposing sides of the bargaining table, SPC and the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union have collaborated to develop an induction-to-leadership training program for more than 2000 workers in the Goulburn Valley. All employees have had the opportunity to undertake Certificate I through to Certificate III courses, which have lead to nationally recognised qualifications in the areas of food processing and transport competencies.

Access to training has given all employees, both permanent and seasonal, the opportunity to develop workplace skills and transportable knowledge linked to national competencies from Certificate I through Certificate III. The two parties have collaborated very successfully, implementing training plans in conjunction with their registered training organisation, the National Food Institute, and with the financial support of government.
