METL Statistics

METL receives income from a number of sources. Employee contributions are from individual maritime employees where agreement has been negotiated for contributions for specific training purposes; METL GTO income primarily comprises fee-for-service payments from host employers, plus some government trainee incentives; SPF contributions are international funds for projects with a regional focus.

METL expends funds primarily on the provision of the training of seafarers in Australia and on the related administrative and operational costs associated with the delivery of this service. Due to slowing in the industry and reduced demand for training, 2016/17 will see a reduction in expenditure on the TIR program and an increase in RTO spending as METL prepares to shift focus to the up-skilling of the current workforce and an expanded offering to industry.
