HTN named provider for Industry Specialist Mentoring for Australian Apprentices (ISMAA) Program

On 31 January 2018 the Assistant Minister for Vocational Education and Skills, the Hon Karen Andrews MP, announced the 24 organisations selected to deliver the Australian Government’s new Industry Specialist Mentoring for Australian Apprentices (ISMAA) program.
The ISMAA program will provide intensive support to around 45,000 Australian Apprentices in the first two years of their training in a wide range of industries undergoing structural change. The support provided to Australian Apprentices will help address particular career and skills development concerns related to their specific industry and situation. Through the ISMAA program, Australian Apprentices will be provided regular one on one contact with highly skilled mentors who have skills sets that enable them to service the targeted cohort.

The Team at HTN are delighted to announce that they have been named a provider under the ISMAA program and will be providing specialist mentoring services to apprentice chefs in NSW and the ACT.

CEO Michael Bennett said “HTN have successfully employed, mentored and supported more than 12,000 apprentice chefs to date so we are very well positioned to provide a proven, specialist mentoring service to apprentice chefs employed across NSW and the ACT. This will be experienced Chef Mentors providing onsite support and industry advice to apprentice chefs in order to improve the apprenticeship completion rates associated with the hospitality industry. We look forward to working with all industry stakeholders to ensure that the program is a great success”
