Welcome to WynMET

Wynnum Manly Employment and Training Association Inc (WynMET)

Past History:

In 1978, a community group was formed to assist the disadvantaged in the region. After several name changes, Wynnum Manly Employment and Training (WynMET) was formed. In 1988, the Association became the Bowman Community Support Centre (CYSS).

The name changed to Wynnum Skillshare when granted a DEETYA Skillshare contract. Many disadvantaged community members were able to gain skills to enter the workforce at entry level. The Management committee during the Skillshare period were frugal and recognised that they had to move from the Wynnum site and began searching suitable premises to buy. The premises had to be reasonably priced and large enough for our increasing numbers of clients.

The current premises were purchased and was formally opened on the 12 June 1991 by Mr Con Sciaccia, MHR. In the same year Wynnum Skillshare was awarded a commendation for its “Skillshare Canteen course”.

In 1998, Wynnum Manly Employment and Training (WynMET) was born to reflect new objectives. During the ensuing years WynMET became a Registered Training Organization (RTO), became a member of Jobs Australia (JA) and won the 2000 Business Achievers Award.

In 2009, with a grant provided by the Commonwealth Government and funds from Career Employment Australia Ltd (CEA), a refurbishment of the original premises was undertaken. Original plans were expanded to totally revitalize the very old premises to provide a spacious, well presented training facility. The total refurbishment was completed by Career Employment Australia Consortium Limited, a not for profit building company, and Indigenous staff were employed during the project where ever possible.

Current Situation:

With government and contract changes, the committee realised that for WynMET to progress, it needed to join a group of like-minded not for profit organizations. It linked with CEA and today is an “Indigenous Centre” catering to the needs of Indigenous Australians primarily those involved in the Indigenous Youth Mobility Pathways Project (IYMP).

Wynnum Manly Employment and Training Association Inc is also a Registered Training Organisation (National RTO Number 0677) and delivers training in Hospitality, Construction, Plumbing and Resources and Infrastructure.

WynMet has a strong commitment to training in schools and delivers qualifications funded by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training VET investment budget.

As our presence in schools continues to evolve, the demand for our student-centred approach and industry focussed training grows.
