For Transdev Australasia, training is seen not as a destination, but rather a continuous journey. As a transport provider that facilitates 50 million customer journeys every year via buses, light rail and ferry services, the value is clear.
Transdev’s focus on education is directly connected with its strategic direction and planning processes to ensure the company is responding to current and emerging needs successfully.
Transdev has worked closely with leading registered training organisations to develop targeted training solutions for several cohorts including apprentices and trainees, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and women in non-traditional roles.
Transdev has responded to industry developments with an educational lens, including the shift towards zero-emissions technology by 2035 in NSW. The company has already added 13 electric buses to its fleet and is upskilling its maintenance employees with 2 nationally accredited skillsets to guide them through this technological change.
Transdev recognises their strong investment in employee development has many positive impacts, including employee confidence and wellbeing, and greater retention of an agile workforce that is primed to meet the demands of the future of work.
