Novaskill is a not-for-profit organisation that delivers training, recruitment and mentoring services and apprenticeship management throughout eight Australian branches, as well as specialised training to international students in Newcastle and abroad.
The organisation’s commitment and leadership to the provision of foundational workforce solutions has transformed clients, partners, students and employers, but most importantly has allowed it to achieve its mission to support communities by enriching people’s lives.
Novaskill’s story is one of development, re-imagining and new beginnings.
Established as Hunter Group Apprentices and later becoming Hunter Group Training (HGT), the organisation was founded as a result of the severe economic downturn in the Hunter region in the early 1980s.
Its objective was to ensure young apprentices could continue on with their trade training by being hosted out to local employers so that when the economy improved, they would be able to continue with their trade.
In 2008, HGT was boldly rebranded as Novaskill, a name that has come to embody the progressive and innovative values we hold dearly.
HGT Australia International College has its main campus in Newcastle.
Novaskill’s mission is to “support communities by enriching people’s lives”.
