- About Mas
Our South East Apprenticeships Tasmania (SEAT) program was established to provide pre-employment training, career support, employment brokerage services, transportation and mentoring to groups of job seekers.
SEAT sought to address the shortage of work-ready candidates in South Eastern Tasmania, particularly in the construction industry. Mas was able to provide a holistic approach to skills development and leverage our extensive industry networks to support job seekers into meaningful employment.
SEAT was designed for young people aged between 15-20 years.
SEAT was a 10 week pre-employment training program combining:
Through career support, employment services, transportation, intensive mentoring and an incentive scheme, we supported regional job seekers to overcome their barriers to employment, while also supporting local industries in growth to meet their workforce development needs.
Construction company, Podmatrix, offered apprenticeships and traineeships to 10 participants who completed the program, with further employment opportunities from our extensive network of employers.
SEAT was a collaboration between Mas, South East Region Development Association, Work & Training, Community Transport Services Tasmania, Interact Australia, Workskills and the Department of Education’s Trade Training Centre.
This program was subsidised by the Department of State Growth, Tasmania.
