Motivation Foundation

About Motivation Foundation

The Motivation Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to educate and develop life and employability skills for students enrolled in Year 11, 12 or equivalent from diverse backgrounds.

Students have the opportunity to achieve a nationally recognised Certificate II in Civil Construction and Certificate II in Resources and Infrastructure Work Preparation through on-site training and workplace experience.

Investment in Youth

For over 30 years Ertech has been committed to developing and enhancing communities through its civil construction projects.

In 2008 the Ertech Construction Academy began by teaching young people how to become job-ready in a civil construction environment through the development of skills such as pipe laying and machine operation.

With the aim of increasing student numbers and becoming more sustainable, the academy’s operation has been taken on by the Motivation Foundation and is now known as the Motivation Civil & Mining Academy.

Ertech continues to support the Academy as a major sponsor and actively recruits graduates from the program to transition trainees into the workplace.

Many of our students are growing up in difficult circumstances and face ongoing challenges as a result of disadvantage, disengagement and diversity. We are committed to supporting each student with a holistic approach that caters to their individual needs whilst preparing them with the tools required to succeed in industry.
