Kangan Institute's close partnership with Qantas continues to gain momentum with 80 Qantas staff graduating on 24th June 2013 with brand new qualifications attained through skills recognition. The ceremony was held at the Qantas Centre of Excellence in Sydney and graduates were part of the Qantas Career Transition program provided to staff affected by recent structural adjustments within industry. Now in its second year, the program assists workers with achieving aviation, engineering or business qualifications through a combination of skills recognition and gap training at Kangan Institute. Kelly Townson, Kangan Institute's general manager of Client Services Group, who attended the ceremony with teachers Russel Gambling, Roslyn Devlin and Peter Elovaris and Employment Services' Nola Grant and Peter Hurley, congratulated the graduates and expressed her satisfaction at Kangan Institute's role in the initiative. "This represents a very successful example of our leading approach in assisting Workers in Transition and utilising Skills Recognition and gap training to sensitively support Qantas in its national structural realignment process in the engineering area," said Kelly. Kangan Institute is one of Victoria's largest providers of Skills Recognition, with the service currently in the running for the coveted VET Client Service/Support Excellence title in the 2013 Victorian Training Awards. The Skills Recognition Centre works with individuals and organisations to formally assess skills and knowledge against nationally-accredited qualifications.
