It’s great to be acknowledged for that by our industry, through the annual awards program of the Civil Contractors Federation in Tasmania.
Our parent company Downer took out the award for Commitment to Training and Skills Development, for the second year running. In Tasmania we invest above the industry average in training and skills development for our people across Downer and VEC Civil Engineering.
We also know we have an obligation to our community. That’s why we support and partner with training organisations to help create pathways to training and work, especially for young Tasmanians.
One of the many apprentices we employ is apprentice carpenter Luke Ockerby, who took out the CCF’s Apprentice of the Year award for 2022. You can read his story here.
