ETC a finalist in training awards

ENTERPRISE and Training Company has been named a finalist in the 2016 NSW Training Awards - Small Training Provider of the Year Award.

ETC's chief executive Jenny Barnett said this was an accomplishment for the company's training team given the great uncertainty and change in the training industry over the past 12 months.

"I'm thrilled for the ETC training team, who have worked hard to develop innovative new training programs, improve our quality systems and processes and strengthen our industry partnerships," Ms Barnett said.

ETC's general manager of training and business services Karen Busby applauded her team.

"We introduced our Work It program, which focuses on learning by doing in a real life industry environment under the guidance and supervision of our trainers," Ms Busby said.

"The smaller class sizes and hands-on practical learning enhances the learning experience for the student and is designed to increase completion rates and employment outcomes."

Ms Busby said ETC had also worked hard to establish formal partnerships with industry providers, including Slipways Restaurant, who were very supportive of the model.

Winners will be announced on September 8 in Sydney.
