Australian Institute of Training and Development Awards.

INTAR was formed in 2014 to provide a vehicle for training providers, manufacturers and other interested parties to pay into a collective fund to enable high quality training resources to be developed.

It was started by David McElvenny (CEO of Workspace Training, a registered training organisation), and Jim Vaughan (principal of Vaughan Consulting Software Solutions, a programming and application development business).

The combined teams of Workspace Training and VCSS work together with other specialists to develop the INTAR training resources, in close consultation with the advisory committee for each project. For more information on the people involved, go to: The INTAR team.

Before we started working under the INTAR banner, we produced many resources as an integrated project team, including three Toolboxes for the Australian Flexible Learning Framework and seven projects for the WELL Program. In 2014 we won the 'Excellence in a learning resource' award at the Australian Institute of Training and Development Awards.

INTAR was set up when it became clear that the federal government was no longer funding the development of literacy-assisted training resources for public use under a creative commons licence. Up until this time, our project team was able to apply for funding through various federal government bodies, in particular, the Workplace English Language and Literacy (WELL) Program.

Some of the projects we are currently working on were commenced in their original format with WELL Program funding. These original resources are still freely available to everyone, and can be accessed by following the links at right.
