TORGAS - the Apprentice and Trainee Specialists
TORGAS is a not-for-profit organisation operating as a commercial business providing apprentices and trainees to businesses throughout Queensland. With an enviable record of achievement as "The Apprentice and Trainee Specialists", TORGAS has built strong partnerships with industry to provide quality employment opportunities in apprenticeships and traineeships.
TORGAS commenced in Townsville in 1984 with one staff member and 15 apprentices. From our humble beginnings over 30 years ago we have expanded across Queensland and are now guiding our third generation of apprentices and trainees toward successful careers. We are one of the largest industry-backed employers of apprentices and trainees in Queensland offering employment in a diverse range of industries from automotive, engineering, electrical, aviation, construction, printing, horticulture, retail, hospitality, optical, health, community services, business administration and more.
TORGAS makes significant contribution to the community by providing quality apprentices and trainees, not only to big business but also to small specialised operations unable to provide full apprenticeship programmes of their own.
In July 2015, TORGAS amalgamated with Endeavour Foundation to develop a quality, diverse and committed community service group. This exciting opportunity brings together two like-minded organisations leveraging on our respective strengths and shared values.
Quality GTO and ISO Certification
TORGAS is accredited against the ISO9001: 2008 Quality management systems standards and the national standards ofGroup Training Organisations (GTO: 2006).
