ANIBT Is Host to the Chongqing Technical and Quality Supervision Bureau
Wednesday, 5th of October 2011
Earlier this month ANIBT had the pleasure of hosting a delegation of Chinese government figures and public servants from the Chongqing Technical and Quality Supervision Bureau on a national tour around Australia with the aim of demonstrating how Australia’s quality management systems run in comparison to China’s.
Arriving in Melbourne on the 9th of September, the delegation spent three days visiting various sites such as Melbourne Water Western Treatment Plant, the Whyndham City Council and a food processing factory in Dandenong South. The trip allowed the delegation to take the opportunity to gain a better understanding about Australia’s political system, Governance in the public sector, OH&S standards, food safety standards and quality assurance policies whilst also taking in the sites that Melbourne had to offer.
From Melbourne the delegation will be visiting the Gold Coast for three days and then onto Sydney for six days before returning to China.
ANIBT giving opportunities to kids
Thursday 15th of September 2011
The Home Education Network (HEN) group and ANIBT have come together to create opportunities to children who do not seem to excel in the school system or whose parents just prefer a home based education.
HEN is an organisation that believes that children do not have to stay in the school system in order to achieve a great education. Everyone is unique and schools cannot cater to everyone. Just because they leave the school system does not make them a failure. (http://www.home-ed.vic.edu.au/)
ANIBT and HEN have come together to offer children from 13 – 18 years old opportunities to undertake Hospitality courses in Commercial Cookery and Certificate II and III in Business or Frontline Management courses. There will also be opportunity to take their education further and they can choose to undertake other subjects later at ANIBT if they choose to do so.
Through the ANIBT Career Centre with their qualifications these young people are establishing pathways into University with out completing their VCE. ANIBT believes education is the way to a more fulfilling life and we are creating the foundation for this future generation.

ANIBT is happy to have developed a wonderful relationship with the Saint Joseph Melkite Parish. We recently had a graduation ceremony for Parish members who have completed the Certificate IV in Frontline Management or Diploma of Management. We are continuing our relationship thanks to Episcopal vicar for Victoria, Father Samir Haddad, President of Global Melkite Association Inc. We have classes that have now finished Certificate IV’s, Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas in various courses. Some students are continuing with additional courses including short courses such as Desserts and Cakes and ESL. Parish and Community leader Houda Kelzi stated at the graduation
“I would like to thank ANIBT for their support and generosity in helping the Melkite church to aid our community members in further developing their skills. This ongoing support has given us the ability to provide our members with education opportunities which might otherwise have been more difficult to achieve. We look forward to a long standing and strong relationship between ANIBT and ourselves to continue to provide the building blocks for a strengthened and more skilled community at large.“
ANIBT feels that it has been wonderful working with this group and other groups like it. It is wonderful seeing communities coming together.
