Enrolments open for mentoring program


ALC opens enrolments for the February intake of its Women Moving Forward mentoring program

The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) has opened enrolments for the February intake of its Women Moving Forward mentoring program.

The initiative is mapped to a Certificate IV in Transport and Logistics, Business and Frontline Management and is open to all women in the transport and logistics industry.

Run by the ALC, the program is based on developing women’s networks and building their skills through teleconferences with industry leaders and tutorials CDs and DVDs.

"The course is run over ten weeks and is proudly supported by Queensland Transport, which is sponsoring ten places for women from regional Queensland in the February intake," ALC Program Director Melinda Buker says.

She says more than 50 women have already benefited from Women Moving Forward, which is based on the My Mentor program developed by Emberin.

It costs $400 for each applicant, but the ALC covers the course administration.

Successful applicants have praised Women Moving Forward, with Jo Hammond from Pacific Brands saying it gave her an opportunity to network with women from different backgrounds in the transport and logistics sector.

Nancy Haddad from Kalari says the program offers a great chance to get involved with other women in the industry.

"Knowing other women are going through the same as you are,and listening to the experiences of people higher up who have already been there was great," Haddad says.

The ALC says enrolments for the February intake are filling fast, but there are still places available.
