Quality Assured Trainers, Assessors and RTOs

3cm Pathways will engage RTO’s, using our quality assurance process that identifies more than qualifications. We identify on site experience and knowledge, and people / communication skills. 3cm Pathways, RTO’s, Trainers and Assessors will provide support to Site Supervisors and Candidates. 3cm Pathways will either fly in or use, local Trainers and Assessors with the qualifications, skill, knowledge, and experience to deliver the identified Apprenticeships.

On the Job Training and Assessment in the Pilbara

In most cases, 3cm Pathways will provide Apprentices and connect them with RTO’s and Host Employers to establish a Training Plan. When this is not the case, 3cm Pathways Field Officers in collaboration with the Host Employer and Designated RTO will design a tailored flexible Training Plan. In this case, Apprenticeships are bespoke to the Organisation, the Apprentice, and the Supervisor’s needs.

Pilbara focus

3cm Pathways will come to you. We have offices and facilities in both Karratha and Port Hedland.

Unparalleled engagement

The Candidate, Employer, Supervisors, Field Officers, Trainers, and Assessors will all be directly engaged with each other and involved in identifying, special needs, reasonable adjustment, or unparalleled engagement and communication of all parties

Practical delivery and assessment

Apprentices will be using and assessed on tools and equipment they’re familiar with and use day to day, thereby increasing support, industry relevance and positive outcomes.

Support of Host Employers on-site Supervisors

3cm Pathways will provide support to Supervisors to ensure competency and the ability to “set apprentices up to succeed”. This will ensure the best practice of education, the best outcome for the apprentice and a valuable employee

Multiple sites

The apprentice will be exposed to multiple sites in the Pilbara and gain significant skill and knowledge.

Pilbara Community

3cm Pathways will offer our products and services in the Pilbara and to the Pilbara’s Indigenous and Non-Indigenous community, encourage women in non-traditional work roles, and encourage mature aged apprenticeships for the Pilbara Community.
