The Remington Group commenced our 2022 On-the-Job Training Programme (OJT) last week. Each year, in partnership with a technical institute, we take students into our businesses for on-the-job training to help them improve their skills and gain experience in the workforce. The first batch of nine students for 2022 came to us from the Port Moresby Technical College, who we have partnered with to assist mentor their students throughout their training.
The Remington Group, in partnership with Port Moresby Technical School, is providing this opportunity to students to assist them to practice what they learn in class and enhance their skills with appropriate hands-on experience in the workplace. Our OJT Programme is designed to equip students with the necessary skills, knowledge and attitude required to help them apply their field of study in a working environment.
“The Remington Group is well known as being committed to helping Papua New Guineans learn real working skills, the kind of skills that will assist them find jobs when they leave their school or technical college. This is how we give back to the communities in which we operate. One hundred percent PNG owned, Remington is a household name in Papua New Guinea, we’ve been around in one form or another since 1948, and we’re here to stay”, Peter Goodwin, Remington Group CEO.
The nine students have been assigned to work in the several different business units under the Remington Group umbrella, over the next eight weeks. The four Printing & Graphic Arts students; Manasseh Kupa, Annette Naime, Clifford Luiya and Rebecca Luswa will be assigned to work at BizPrint & Scan. Three Maintenance Fitting & Machining students; Hapia Diwi, Gavin Gandari and Skate Apamumu will be working closely with our Facilities Team, while the two Electronics students; Chervis Hau and McNeil Clivson will be working alongside Remington Technology Service Technicians.
The Remington Group is fully committed to training young Papua New Guineans and to developing a knowledgeable national workforce. We challenge our first OJT batch for 2022 to learn as much as they can, and ask as many questions as they can in the next eight weeks.
