Career FAQs is pleased to welcome a new vocational education partner – Upskilled, one of Australia’s largest Registered Training Organisations, specialising in vocational courses for working professionals. With accredited courses in business and administration, management, project management, sales and customer service, information technology, HR, training and OH&S, Upskilled offers over 30 qualifications at the certificate and diploma level.
Upskilled offers a distinctive range of IT courses, from the Certificate III in Information, Digital Media and Technology to certificates and diplomas in networking, programming, support, systems administration, systems analysis and design, database design, software development and website development. It also offers unique courses in customer contact, for anyone wishing to hone their customer service and sales skills.
All Upskilled courses are offered both online and through their seven-day live workshops. They are ideal for those wishing to enter a new profession, or for career-minded people already working in their industry, stepping into a role of greater responsibility or seeking professional development.
By studying with Upskilled, you’ll be able to fast-track your professional development and enjoy the best of all worlds, obtaining a nationally recognised qualification in a year or less – if you choose, from the comfort of your own home and scheduled around your other commitments. You can start your online course immediately and study at your own pace, and you will have plenty of time for independent study and assignments. You will also receive helpful assessments and feedback throughout the course.
Upskilled prides itself on its innovative, customised approach to online learning. It offers close support to every student from the start to the finish of their study, with a dedicated trainer following and monitoring their progress every step of the way. These industry-experienced trainers provide useful feedback and are in regular contact via phone and email, and training modules are available 24/7 through Upskilled’s interactive e-Learning software package.
As an added bonus, the cost of your course fees may be heavily subsidised or even fully covered by government funding and incentive schemes. As a result of the government’s commitment to encouraging upskilling by Australian workers, many funding schemes now exist – and that could mean great financial benefits for you. Upskilled staff will help you explore these funding opportunities and guide you through the administrative processes.
Upon completion of an Upskilled course, participants report increased productivity, confidence and job satisfaction, as well as improved career prospects and salary expectations. By taking a course, you could enjoy these outcomes too!
Michael Crump, National Marketing Manager at Upskilled, sums up the unique benefits of studying with Upskilled: ‘What makes Upskilled different is our flexibility and accessibility – from our 70-plus training locations across Australia, to our flexible study options, and our ability to streamline the process of accessing government funding and incentives. This means anyone, no matter what background, location or socio-economic status, can get Upskilled’.
