Transdev was nominated for providing training pathways for apprentices and trainees in NSW, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and women.
The Australian Training Awards are the peak national awards that showcase best practice in vocational education and training. Transdev qualified after winning the NSW Training Awards in September.
Transdev Australia and New Zealand CEO Brian Brennan said he was proud Transdev was training future transport leaders.
“It’s so rewarding that we’re supporting apprentices and future leaders with us in a range of roles and especially for people from diverse backgrounds,” Mr Brennan said.
“Transdev has supported more than 250 apprentices this year alone – across different transport modes which just shows the depth of our commitment.”
Transdev’s Head of Learning and Talent, Kiersten Hocking, said the Silver award recognised the talents of our apprentices from bus and tram drivers, to maritime trainees, automotive electricians, mechanics, spray painters to vehicle body builders.
“It’s a simple equation – we look after our people so they can look after themselves and our customers,” Ms Hocking said.
“Investing in our people helps them grow and build their own skills then enables them to provide even better customer service.
“Our ethos as Journey Makers at Transdev, is that everyone goes the extra mile and puts customers at the heart of all journeys.”
Ms Hocking said Transdev had responded to industry developments including zero-emission technology.
“As we continue to add electric vehicles to our fleet, we’re upskilling our maintenance employees with nationally accredited and transferrable skills,” she said.
