Not-for-profit organisations, VERTO and Riverina Community College, have today announced they will join forces to deliver enhanced and expanded training and community programs to the local region.

VERTO has operated in the Riverina for 20 years, and currently delivers Australian Apprenticeship Support Network, Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers and Tenants’ Advice and Advocacy services to the local community.

Riverina Community College has operated in the Riverina for 40 years, providing accredited training and programs such as the Community Visitors Scheme and The Art Factory - which provides opportunities for artists living with a disability.

VERTO Chief Executive Officer, Ron Maxwell, said he was proud to welcome Riverina Community College to the VERTO Group.

“Riverina Community College has made an enormous contribution to the local region for nearly 40 years and we’re very excited about this new venture and continuing to provide quality education, training and community programs that improve lives.”

That sentiment was shared by VERTO President, Andrew Abel, who added: “Our mutual commitment to student success and positively contributing to the communities in which we live and work makes the partnership between VERTO and Riverina Community College a natural fit.

“We’re looking forward to working together to deliver a world-class standard of training to the Riverina community,” Mr Abel said.

Riverina Community College CEO, Catherine Daley, said the college was excited for the future and believes joining forces with VERTO will allow it to continue to grow to meet the evolving needs of the local community.

“Teaming with VERTO will ensure Riverina Community College is able to continue to produce high quality services in line with its mission of engaging communities and enriching lives,” she said.
