Lord Mayor’s Scholarship 2022

Rhodes Business School is selected to run the Lord Mayor's Multicultural Business Scholarship for 3rd year running

Rhodes Business School is extremely proud to be the official Multicultural Business Scholarship partner for Brisbane City Council’s Lord Mayor’s Multicultural Business Scholarship Program and Mentoring Scheme for the third year running. 

As a multiculturally driven group, Rhodes can see the extensive value in this scheme for Brisbane residents from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds who are committed to expanding their business skills and capabilities in the city of Brisbane. 

The Rhodes Business School’s Graduate Certificate in Leadership Diversity course is designed to support workforce leadership diversity and management for people typically managing complex organisational activity, including promoting continuous process improvement, with full delegation authority. It is designed for people who are currently in a management or leadership position with a business or organisation. I’m so glad to see this year’s Mentoring Scheme graduates gain the skill and confidence to use their judgement in a leadership capacity, to create an open and welcoming working environment and to help promote or maintain ongoing diversity initiatives. 

Congratulations to our stunning participants, our leadership team thanks and expresses deep appreciation to our acclaimed programme director, Dr Rudi Tartaglia.

We all look forward to working with the Brisbane City Council and Lord Mayor's Multicultural Business Scholarship Program in the April.

Save on Wages with Rhodes
Save on Wages with Rhodes

Rhodes Business School now delivering options for Building Apprenticeship Commencements Programme

Rhodes’ award winning programmes are now available for employers looking to save up to 50% of their wage bill for 12 months from commencement. We have worked hard to develop a product that maximises flexibility for employers, while delivering the maximum return to the bottom line, providing a unique offset to rising wage-growth.

This is such a fantastic opportunity for employers looking to reduce their wage bill; we're super excited to be able to provide our programmes to unlock this opportunity for companies across Australia. This is just another rung in our climb to become not just a college group, but a vibrant community.

Philip Fung, Director
The Building Apprenticeships Programme is a game-changer for businesses looking to cut costs.

The Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements wage subsidy supports businesses and Group Training Organisations to take on new apprentices and trainees, to build a pipeline of skilled workers to support sustained economic recovery. To provide more pathways into employment, the Australian government is providing a number of apprenticeship incentives for employers to increase apprenticeship and traineeship opportunities across Australia.

The Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements (BAC) wage subsidy is worth up to $28,000 over a 12 month period. It is designed to finance 50% of your apprentice or trainee’s wages to the maximum amount of $7000 per quarter. This subsidy is available for apprentice or trainee commencements up until 30 June 2022.

After the first 12-months of BAC support, employers will be eligible to transition to the Completing Apprenticeship Commencements (CAC) wage subsidy for the second and third years of an apprenticeship or traineeship. Under CAC, employers will receive a 10% wage subsidy for the second year up to $1500 a quarter and then a 5% wage subsidy for the third year up to $750 a quarter.

Rhodes business integration team can provide a range of strategies & restructuring tools for businesses to maximise their use of the programme. Not just limited to junior employees, Rhodes offers solutions for all staff from junior clerks through to director level, with our award-winning and internationally acclaimed certificate, diploma and graduate diploma programmes.

Kick-Starting Massive Growth in the Outback


MAY 2020

Today Rhodes business group is announcing a brand-new programme for rural innovators, that provides the latest knowledge to businesses in the Australian Outback.

Coupling more than 40 years of training in the corporate sector, with a defined need to unlock growth outside of the major Australian cities, the Rhodes program is designed to enable small businesses in rural communities grow skills and expand possibilities. The rural vision initiative brings global leadership and change management to the small stage, delivering the same award-winning packages usually offered to our large corporate clients like BHP, Telstra, Qantas and the Brisbane City Council to business owners and employees in Australia's heartland.

Delivered as a facilitated 10-week programme, with the option to add on Nationally Recognised Diploma, Advanced Diploma and Graduate qualifications, participants will learn the latest project management techniques, how to participate in tender and funding processes, and how to manage change within diverse teams.

Throughout Rhodes' long history, part of our core mission has been to bring everyone into the fold, and really benefit from the digital revolution and it's attendant growth. With the rural vision, RBS is connecting with a new audience, and providing an affordable training solution to underserved communities.
