VERTO Chief Executive Officer, Ron Maxwell, today welcomed the New South Wales Skills Board to the Central West and to VERTO’s Orange office.
The New South Wales Skills Board is an independent panel that advises the Minister for Education on how to best meet the skills and training needs of individuals and industries across the State.
Mr Maxwell said VERTO was proud to welcome such a well-regarded and experienced delegation to the area, particularly given the importance of skills and training in the Orange community.
“We are thrilled the New South Wales Skills Board is visiting the Orange area and our office,” Mr Maxwell said
“This visitation is an invaluable way of highlighting the importance of skills and training across a number of key industry growth areas across the Central West, including Orange.
“Skills and training must be well supported in Orange given the region comprises such a diverse range of industries including aged care, agriculture, agrifoods and mining,” Mr Maxwell said.
Mr Maxwell said the New South Wales Skills Board would meet participants from a number of courses nearing completion on their visit.
“The Board will today have the opportunity to meet a number of our participants currently undertaking a Certificate III in Warehousing Operations, a Certificate II in Retail Services and work readiness training,” Mr Maxwell said.
Mr Maxwell said the Board would also have the opportunity to meet new participants who were today commencing in a Certificate III in Aged Care
“We’re proud to offer training to the Orange community in a variety of key local industries.
“This calendar year alone over 240 participants have enrolled in training in Orange.
“This number represents the number of real lives changed through training and skills development.
“The Central West is a highly profitable region and the New South Wales Skills Board’s visit is evidence of this.
“I look forward to hosting the New South Wales Skills Board at one of our sites when they next visit regional New South Wales,” Mr Maxwell said.
