Central Queensland Apprentices & Trainees, a division of GAGAL, underwent a change of brand in July 2014 and was officially launched by Chairman of the Board Peter Corones AM in Rockhampton.
The change of name from GAGAL Rockhampton to Central Queensland Apprentices & Trainees was strategically introduced to best reflect its position in the region and how far the Division has come from its early days as a satellite office of the Gladstone based not for profit Group Training Organisation.
“Rockhampton is such an important region for the group and this rebrand ensures our relevance in Central Queensland for many years to come.” Chief Executive Officer Leigh Zimmerlie said. “We are grateful to the many hosts who have taken on apprentices with us in the past and looking forward to increasing our placement numbers with other businesses in the region, ensuring we don’t have a huge skills shortage in years to come.”
Businesses and potential apprentices are invited to call in at Central Queensland Apprentices & Trainee’s office at 130 Denham Street, Rockhampton or call Field Officer Graeme Hatch on 0428 030 677 or 1300 2 42425 to further discuss the all-round benefits of this rewarding employment model.
Gladstone Area Group Apprentices Ltd name remains for the Gladstone based organisation and its Biloela Division.
