The South Australian Government has announced Peter Nolan as the newly appointed Director of the Sustainable Industries Education Centre (SIEC).


State Employment, Higher Education and Skills Minister, Tom Kenyon, welcomed the appointment, saying it is a major step in the development of the $125 million SIEC hub at Tonsley Park.


“Mr Nolan brings a wealth of experience to the new position from his previous roles as CEO of a private registered training organisation, a manager of an industry-based training group, a lecturer and Program Manager at TAFE WA, and an Apprenticeship Manager with the WA Chamber of Commerce and Industry,” Mr Kenyon said.


The SIEC centre will specialize in training over 8000 students a year in emerging green technologies for the State’s $4.5 billion building and construction industry.


“SIEC complements the State Government’s Skills for All reforms, aimed at revitalising our training system, with more people in training, greater training options for students, better skills resulting in a stronger economy for South Australia,” Mr Kenyon said.
