Industry members such as TfNSW, Volvo Bus Australia and Foton Mobility Distribution are offering scholarship opportunities for the course

Various members of the bus and coach industry, including Volvo Bus Australia and Foton Mobility Distribution (FMD), are banding together to offer scholarships for a transport management certificate.

The Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies (ITLS) is offering three scholarship opportunities associated with its upcoming Certificate of Transport Management (CTM) 2024, which is aimed at fostering diversity and supporting individuals within the transport industry.

The course is being held this year in Sydney from July 16-19.

The Community Transport Service Providers scholarship is being offered by ITLS and Transport for NSW (TfNSW), with up to eight fee-free scholarships on the cards for individuals working in TfNSW contracted Community Transport Service Providers (CTSPs) to attend the CTM.

The partnership between TfNSW and ITLS has an ongoing focus on increasing the diversity of customers and service providers, with ITLS encouraging and supporting First Nations people and people from culturally and linguistically diverse groups to apply for the scholarships.

The Women in Transport scholarship is being provided by Volvo Bus Australia, with two fee-free scholarships available for women in the transport industry.

Valued at $3,500 each, the scholarships present an opportunity for women seeking to enhance their skills and knowledge through the CTM course.

The final Emerging Achievers scholarship is new for 2024 and provided by Foton/FMD, allowing up to three fee-free scholarships for emerging achievers in the bus and coach sector to undertake the CTM course.

All applications close April 26, with successful candidates to be notified by late May.
