Individual enterprises that host and employ Cadets

Kangan Institute has been running training for a Cadetship group in the metropolitan area for four years where students have been coming in on block release to undertake their study in both the Certificate IV in Supply Chain Principles and a Diploma of Logistics.

Goulburn Ovens TAFE started out in the same manner running a Cadetship group first out of Shepparton, but this has now evolved into a program where Cadets are entered into the program on a rolling enrolment basis throughout regional Victoria and where the delivery mechanism is through a distance education model.
