About MRAEL

Apprentice mechanic

MRAEL is Queensland’s leading provider of education, training and employment services. With over 30 years of industry experience, we operate a number of companies, all with the core objective of contributing to the growth, development and sustainability of a skilled workforce for the future.

MRAEL began business in 1985, initially as a small Group Training Organisation based in Mackay, Central Queensland, employing apprentices and trainees and working with local businesses to provide training opportunities. In the more than 35 years since then, we have grown considerably to become a ‘one-solution’ provider of education, training and employment services with an extensive operating footprint across Queensland and into New South Wales.

In our more than three decades of business, we have remained a proudly not-for-profit organisation and firmly committed to creating new apprenticeship opportunities, providing training and connecting people and businesses to strengthen the future, and the sustainable development, of the workforce.

MRAEL owns and operates a number of subsidiary businesses, all of which contribute to our remit to increase access for all people to services and initiatives that will enhance their personal competence and increase workforce participation. MRAEL’s subsidiary businesses are:

> Australian Trade College North Brisbane
> Australian Trade Training College
> Capricornia Training College (CTC)
> Hospitality Training Network (HTN)

MRAEL and our subsidiary businesses operate as a Group Training Organisation (GTO); Registered Training Organisation (RTO); Senior Vocational School; and Youth Housing and Reintegration Service (YHARS) Provider. MRAEL also delivers Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (AASN) services in Queensland as part of the Mas Experience. MRAEL’s RTO, Australian Trade Training College, is also a contracted provider of trades recognition skills assessment services through Trades Recognition Australia.

To support our business operations, we employ over 160 staff across Queensland and New South Wales. Our people are experienced, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. They actively work with their local communities, striving to create new employment and training opportunities, and to provide support services that increase access and equity.

In 2016, MRAEL joined IntoWork Australia, a dynamic, people-focused organisation that provides expert services to prospective and current employees, business and government. Together, the IntoWork Australia group of businesses provide workforce solutions across Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania.
