Employees can access government funded training opportunities to the skills they need to support your business. Skills in the Workplace also provides the opportunity for funding for training your workforce. But first you need to assess what skills your employees have – and what skills they need.
Training needs analysis
A training needs analysis can identify what skills your employees have and just as importantly, what skills they need.
The size of your operation and the level of your workforce planning will determine how much of a formality this is. Medium to large businesses might like to use the templates for workforce planning at Skills Connect.
Further ideas can be found in the Employer Resource Kit. Or call the Infoline
if you'd like a copy posted to you.
Skills for All Training Providers and industry associations can often help identify what training best suits the needs of your business.
See search for courses, or the Training Provider register and Skills for All funded training list at the right.
Skills in the Workplace
Skills in the Workplace provides funding to organisations in priority industries that want to skill or retrain their workforce.
To be part of the program, an organisation has to demonstrate workforce planning, showing what skills employees currently have and what skills the organisation would like them to learn.
