Queensland Trucking Association (QTA) have announced the launch of the 2018 pilot “Women Take the Wheel” program, commencing in January 2018.

Industry feedback, documented skill shortages, as well as the report produced by Volvo in 2016 titled ‘Professional Truck Driver Shortage’, have all pointed to the need for this program.

QTA will be partnering with Platinum Partner, Strategix Training Group to train and licence female participants who choose a career in the transport and logistics industry.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED? QTA are looking for employers to become ‘Women Take the Wheel’ Ambassadors who will be pre-qualified to offer work experience to graduating students and offer employment (if positions exist).

Please register your interest online or contact QTA’s Membership Service Manager, Lisa Acret by email lisa@qta.com.au or mobile 0405 152 952.
