The Victorian Transport Association (VTA) will hold an information session on its logistics cadetship tomorrow.

Open to any transport industry operator, the session will occur at the VTA offices at Fisherman’s Bend in Melbourne.

The cadetship is open to new and existing employees aged between 18-25 years who have completed Year 12.

Those who undergo the program and graduate after the first year will receive a Certificate IV in Logistics and after the second year will walk away with a Diploma of Logistics, which is recognised nationally and internationally.

Following feedback on a pilot cadetship scheme, the VTA says it is partnering with Victoria University’s Institute for Supply Chain and Logistics to deliver a refined program.

The VTA says employers who have been involved in the pilot program have already seen results by helping identify, recruit, train and develop younger management staff.

"The industry is facing a skills and people shortage, and our workforce is aging," it says.

"Here’s your opportunity to invest in the future of your business through a vibrant employment and training initiative for young people."
