TORGAS works closely with school communities to assist students, parents/caregivers and school staff in achieving the best possible employment outcomes for young people.

To achieve this goal TORGAS provides school visits where we provide information about apprenticeships and traineeships, as well as helpful hints about applying for a job.
Sample resumes, templates and sample cover letter can be found on our website. We encourage you to use this free service!

Over the past few years, industry requirements and expectations of apprentices and trainees have changed rapidly. As TORGAS is the largest employer of apprentices and trainees in North Queensland and employs apprentices and trainees in a diverse range of industries across Queensland, the TORGAS team has a good understanding of industry expectations of new apprentice/trainee recruits and we are keen to pass this knowledge on to parents / care givers, students and school staff.

To arrange for a visit to your school, or for a private appointment, we have a single point of contact for Townsville and the surrounding areas (from Mackay to Cairns), Ms Caitlyn Earea and she can be contacted on 4759 0000 or via 
The contact for the Brisbane region is Ms Kelly Pershouse and she can be contacted on 3434 3000 or via

TORGAS encourages parents/caregivers and students to make a time with Caitlyn or Kelly to discuss career options around apprenticeship or traineeship at the end of Year 12.
