Position Partners runner-up for TAFE QLD award

Position Partners was a finalist and runner-up in this year’s TAFE Queensland – SkillsTech Apprentice Awards for the Large Employer of the Year award.

The company was nominated for its unique apprenticeship program, co-created with TAFE Queensland to build the right skills and knowledge base for Position Partners Field Technicians.

Bernadette Taoro Ashin, Strategic Head of People & Culture at Position Partners said the company’s Field Technicians require a mix of skills and training to be able to support their customers with high precision machine control technology on heavy earthmoving equipment.

“We are delighted to have received recognition from TAFE Queensland at the awards night this year – it has been great to partner with them and collaborate on a progressive, tailored program that is helping to fast-track our apprentices with the skills they need on site,” Mrs Ashin said.

Specialising in the distribution and support of intelligent positioning solutions used in civil construction, building, mining and geospatial applications, Position Partners has more than 350 employees across Australia, Southeast Asia and New Zealand.

The Field Services team is integral to the business, supporting customers with advanced survey and machine control technology used on excavators, graders, dozers and other heavy plant to accurately grade to a project design.

Position Partners has seven apprentices enrolled on the course, which incorporates a Certificate III in auto-electrical as well as communications network qualifications. The apprentices, who are employed by Position Partners across a number of locations including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, also benefit from a mix of online, face-to-face and on-the-job learning.

“In addition to the tailored course content, the apprentices are also benefitting from a mixed learning experience,” Mrs Ashin added. “They learn on the job with experienced colleagues in their branches, but also alongside and from one another as a team during their time on campus.”

Shawn O’Sullivan, Business Manager at TAFE Queensland said their partnership with Position Partners has been valuable.

“Our partnership with Position Partners enables us to work closely with industry and modern technology to maintain currency and deliver the highest quality training that we can for TAFE Queensland and the employers,” he said.
