The key elements of TFTF include:
- Victorian industry capability – addressing skills shortages through new training pathways
- Diversity and social inclusion opportunities – creating an inclusive workforce through employment programs, partnerships and social procurement
- The Rail Academy – a new board of governance to oversee the standards of training in rail for Victoria, including operation of the Rail Academy Newport
Training for the Future while led by the Level Crossing Removal Project, seeks input from Melbourne Metro Rail Project, Metro Trains Melbourne, Public Transport Victoria, V/Line and industry.
Rail Academy is designing and developing quality training products and resources to strengthen rail capability, address specific labour skill shortages and ensure training is sustainable and cost effective.
