The IntoWork Group is pleased announce its international expansion, with New Zealand’s Apprenticeship Training Trust (ATT) joining the Group.
Founded in 1983 IntoWork has grown to become Australia’s leading not for profit provider of employment, skills, education and support services, with 1900 staff across 200 locations.
While the IntoWork Group already delivers some initiatives internationally through partnerships across the United Kingdom and Dubai, the addition of ATT gives the IntoWork Group a strong trans-Tasman direct service delivery presence.
“IntoWork is thrilled to welcome ATT to the Group. Like us, they’re a values based organisation that is committed to positive social impact through the provision of employment and training opportunities,” said IntoWork Group CEO Poul Bottern.
ATT is an independent non-profit Trust with more than 30 years’ experience. Working with host employers ATT proudly provides opportunities for New Zealanders to train and become successful tradespeople.
ATT Chief Executive Nicola Dashper said her organisation is excited by the move and opportunities it brings. “We’re incorporating the positive aspects of both ATT and IntoWork and the outcome for us is access to more resources and expertise, and the opportunity to further innovative and diversify. This is exciting news both for our clients and our staff”.
In 2023 the IntoWork Group celebrated a milestone marking 40 years since it first began operation in Melbourne’s inner north.
“Now in our 40th year we’ve grown from a small apprenticeship employment organisation with six apprentices and two staff, to a Group of 19 businesses who support more than 100,000 individuals and 60,000 business across Australia. With ATT we’re continuing our evolution and look forward to supporting more individuals, businesses and communities than ever before, on both sides of the Tasman” said Mr Bottern.
