William Angliss Institute students to benefit from community service funding

William Angliss Institute will receive $3.35 million from the Victorian Government to deliver support services and targeted training for young people, including disadvantaged students.

16111-0012-webThe community service funding will support eight vital programs and services at the Institute including the HEAT Program, Charcoal Lane, Learning Resource Centre (Library), Counselling Services, Student Opportunities, Learning Advisory Services, Butchery and Meat Processing, and Food Science and Technology.

William Angliss Institute CEO Nicholas Hunt said this investment will ensure the Institute can retain and expand these important programs and services, with improved resources which will help students’ educational outcomes and employment prospects.

Minister for Training and Skills, The Hon. Steve Herbert, announced the funding and met with students from both the HEAT and Charcoal Lane programs at the Institute’s CBD campus.

HEAT is a hospitality employment and training program delivered as a partnership between the Institute and St Kilda Youth Services. The additional funding will stabilise the program and ensure continued educational support can be provided.

William Angliss Institute has been an integral part of the HEAT program since its inception. Students learn vital skills to empower them to engage in customer service and the hospitality industry which is one of Australia’s fastest growing industries.

HEAT chef Arnold Greiner has worked with disadvantaged youth since 2005 and over 300 students have graduated from the HEAT program over that time.


“These young people develop hospitality skills that can help them get either full or part time employment. More importantly we work with them to develop their self-esteem, life skills and work ethic which allows them to improve all aspects of their lives,” Arnold said.

Charcoal Lane is a social enterprise training program as well as a high-quality restaurant, which provides training opportunities for Indigenous disadvantaged youth to help them transition to mainstream employment.

This new funding will provide additional tuition support for Indigenous students to enable them to stay engaged and complete their qualifications.

The Institute’s counselling, learning advisory and careers and employment services, plus the Learning Resource Centre will also receive funding, giving all of the Institute’s approximately 18,000 students a significant boost.

In addition, funding has been announced to support ongoing delivery of training for butchery and meat processing, food science and technology courses. William Angliss Institute is the only specialist training provider in Victoria for these programs and qualified workers are in high demand. _MG_7839


Hospitality Employment And Training (HEAT)

HEAT offers a twelve-week program that incorporates five key elements:

  1. Industry specific training

  2. Work readiness

  3. Personal and group support

  4. Work experience and employment and

  5. Personalised post-program support, advice, referral and advocacy

The program places a strong emphasis on welfare and career guidance, as we realise that for many in our target group, becoming job ready requires much more than just acquiring work-related skills. All young people will participant in pathways planning and have their progress towards education, employment and independence goals monitored.

Sydney's ICC wins national infrastructure award

Sydney’s International Convention Centre (ICC Sydney) at Darling Harbour has been named Australia’s best infrastructure project at the Infrastructure Partnerships Australia’s National Infrastructure Awards.

Andrew Constance Minister for Transport and Infrastructure welcomed the award saying the ICC was a jewel in the NSW Government’s infrastructure crown.
