Training

Training should be fun, so we’ve developed a course that never stops moving.

This is a 12 week course that’s immersive – Very “hands on”

We take training out of the classroom and into the workplace. You’ll put theory into practise, in a real workplace, from your first day.

Trainees can expect 4 days of orientation, where we discuss workplace legislation and occupational safety in detail.

We then rotate you through a number of work situations over the following ten week period.

You’ll gain diverse experiences – Discovering your skills. – We’ll help you further develop them.

Emphasis is on developing ‘Soft’ skills.

Employers want employees who are on time, keen to learn, can work solely, or in a team, and adapt easily to change.

Trainers work closely with you, giving support and guidance throughout the course.

Importantly, literacy and numeracy is assessed – These are key skills and, where required,  assistance is given.

Disabilities and barriers are also addressed and goal planning put in place.

Access to Career Planning Specialists is also available.
