Skills council and MYST form partnership


Mick Young Scholarship Trust and the TLISC join forces to help disadvantaged students gain transport and logistics qualifications

October 27, 2011

The Transport and Logistics Industry Skills Council (TLISC) and the Mick Young Scholarship Trust (MYST) have linked to help financially disadvantaged students gain qualifications in the industry.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed forming the partnership, TLISC says.

The Trust bears the name of the late former shearer, union official and Federal Labor cabinet minister of the 1980s and it recently forged another transport industry relationship through Virgin Australia.

It gives financially disadvantaged students the chance to further their education at TAFE institutes nationally.

"Educational scholarships can play an important role in ensuring that all students can have access to their career of choice," TLISC CEO Robert Adams says.

"The transport and logistics industry plays a vital role in Australia’s economic success and is facing its own challenges in ensuring its workforce is adequately prepared for the future.

"This initiative will boost the numbers of students wishing to improve their skill sets and gain employment within the industry".
