Workshops

Relevant industry training and professional development

Skills Strategies International offers a range of professional development and soft skills training workshops that are highly relevant to today's workplace.

Training and Assessment Update Workshops

The Training and Education Training package was updated in April 2016. The core units of the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment were updated to include the TAEASS502 Design and development assessment tools and TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills (LLN) units of competency. To ensure the VET workforce has appropriate skills in designing and developing assessment tools and identifying and evaluating LLN requirements, Skills Ministers agreed to update the training and assessment credential requirements in line with the chances to the TAE Training Package. 

Skills Strategies International have scheduled a number of Update Workshops and offer online and classroom delivery for your convenience.

One day workshop: Understand your personal brand to develop your career 

This workshop is suited to Teachers, Career Advisors and Vet Coordinators or anyone within a school environment advising students on career development. The current job market is highly competitive and ever changing so it is imperative that schools stay well-informed and ensure career advise provided to students is in line with industry expectations.

The workshop is delivered by our industry expert, Annette Drenth. Annette has been providing career advise to businesses and individuals for close to 8 years. With a specialisation in LinkedIn and personal branding, she will bring a fresh perspective to career development and explain how creating a personal brand is important for students heading out into the workforce. 

The workshop has the following outline:

  • What is a personal brand and how can you use it for career development
  • Exercises on self-knowledge, with an emphasis on personality, values, interests and abilities
  • Gain an understanding of the various career development tools
  • Guidance on job applications such as resume and cover letter writing, selection criteria in the S.T.A.R technique, interview skills, LinkedIn and finding your way through online employment tools.

The workshop can be tailored to suit your schools needs. We can work with a group of staff and/or staff and students together and deliver the workshop on-site at your school/university. Please enquire about this option or call 08 6143 2180.
