Event Details

Victoria’s rail and transport industry is invited to learn more about the industry’s diversity and how is it building for an inclusive future. Delivered as part of Victoria's Training for The Future program, Transforming Transport is an industry-wide series of sessions aimed at building the industry's inclusion capability. The series reinforces the need to create an inclusive Victoria that enables people to fulfil their potential as equals regardless of their gender, sexuality, ability or culture.

Come and be part of sessions that include:

Industry Capability and Inclusion - Training For The Future Program

An initiative of the Victorian Government’s Major Transport Infrastructure Authority and Department of Transport, Training for the Future is an industry skills program designed to prepare Australians to deliver an unprecedented amount of work on the Melbourne rail network over the next ten years and beyond.

Delivered by the Level Crossing Removal Project in partnership with the Rail Academy Newport, Rail Projects Victoria, Metro Trains Melbourne, Yarra Trams, Vline, Victrack, Public Transport Victoria and Victoria’s transport construction partners, the program will result in a new generation of rail talent for Victoria. It will provide opportunities to re-skill people with relevant experience from industries in decline, as well as training people from disadvantaged communities.

The key elements of Training for the Future include:

  • industry capability
  • skills development
  • diversity and social inclusion opportunities.
