AiGTS is leading the way

Now, more than ever, skilled Australians are needed to take up the leadership challenges ahead.

The Today’s Skills: Tomorrow’s Leaders program makes a valuable contribution, identifying and developing the leadership potential that exists amongst the group training network’s 35,000 apprentices and trainees.

Each year 21 Group Training apprentices and trainees, high achievers in their chosen professions and potential industry leaders of the future, are chosen to participate in an intensive program held at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra.

“This is a unique opportunity for participants to develop their leadership, entrepreneurial
and career development skills, National Group Training Manager, Dean Arundell said.

“AiGTS has had a representative every year since 2006 with four this year. This is a credit to all AiGTS staff in recognising potential leaders within its Apprentices and Trainees”.

AiGTS representatives include:
Callan Ridge – hosted to W McCulloch Hydraulic Engineers (Bendigo, VIC)
Stuart Dunstall – host to Coca Cola Amatil (Bayswater, VIC)
Jock Duncan – hosted to Codan (Newton, SA)
Robert Campion - Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ACT)

AiGTS’s representatives received some invaluable lessons in leadership and life when
they met the Governor-General, Ms Quentin Bryce at Government House Canberra, for the launch of the Today’s Skills:Tomorrow’s Leaders program.

Ms Bryce, the Patron of Group Training Australia, hosted a morning tea and mingled with more than 60 guests including apprentices, trainees, host employers, group training
representatives and government officials.

“The leadership program for AiGTS has succeeded in imparting vital leadership and life skills to some of Australia’s future leaders,” Dean Arundell, said.
