Since 1982, not-for-profit group training organisation WPC Group (Work Place Connect) has specialised in flexible employment, recruitment and training solutions for apprentices and trainees.

In response to challenges faced by automotive dealers, WPC Group and the Nissan Motor Co. (Australia) collaborated to create a unique Mentored Apprenticeship Program known as NISSMAP. It offers Nissan dealers in metropolitan, regional and rural Australia a turnkey solution to addressing their skills needs.

The program immerses apprentices in Nissan vehicles and technologies from day one. Apprentices are matched with a dedicated mentor from WPC Group, all of whom have deep industry experience and counselling skills.

The program offers participants an accelerated apprenticeship qualification that is delivered in state-of-the-art training facilities, in conjunction with the Nissan Learning Academy and TAFE.

The program has had over 140 participants and an 86 per cent apprenticeship retention rate that is significantly higher than the 49 per cent industry average.

WPC Group is a community based enterprise that has over 30 years’ experience in designing and delivering apprenticeship programs around Australia, with over 500 Australian Apprentices and an extensive network of industry partners.
