A contemporary framework  

The Centre supports businesses to meet changing work structures, roles and environments by transforming through education and training. These five contemporary skills groupings provide businesses with a framework when developing their workforce:

  • Digital Skills
  • Human Capabilities
  • Business Operations & Improvement
  • Workplace Relations
  • Technical/Industry Specific

Businesses are better able to grow and innovate in the midst of rapid change when learning and development for the whole workforce is part of a planned learning and development strategy.

Learning and development strategies

Contemporary learning and development in companies is best supported by a number of strategies:

  • Engendering a culture of learning while working
  • Establishing and using a Learning Management System to keep track of the unique skills pool
  • Implementing a cycle of re-skilling and up-skilling for the whole workforce
  • Providing options for learning to keep skills current in the workplace (face-to-face, online, coaching, social learning platforms, learner input to content)
  • Mixing in-house training with programs developed and delivered by external providers, and co-designing where possible
  • Considering a mix of short courses, micro-credentials and full qualifications as needed by your organisation
  • Gaining the right talent for your workplace by taking on new entrants as students through work-based learning models (apprentices/trainees/cadets/interns).
