The Transport and Logistics Industry Reference Committee (IRC) is proposing a new Heavy Vehicle Driver Apprenticeship in response to industry’s call to professionalise the Heavy Vehicle Driver occupation. The apprenticeship will address driver shortages across Australia, create career pathways, and ensure the safety of those working in the industry and all other road users.
The IRC would appreciate your views on the Industry Consultation Paper that outlines the case for an apprenticeship and invites you to submit responses to the consultation questions that have been identified. Your views would be appreciated by the close of business on Friday, 15 October 2021.
You are also invited to join the Chair and members of the IRC in a webinar to discuss the merits and challenges of introducing a national heavy vehicle driver apprenticeship.
Friday, 8 October 2021, 1-2pm AEDT
Join the discussion via Zoom – Registrations close Wednesday, 6 October at 1pm AEDT.
