Learn­ing bus in town

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

IF YOU need to up­date your work skills it might be time to jump on­board the “learn­ing bus”, which has been in Port Dou­glas all week and rolls out to­mor­row.

The Skilling So­lu­tions Mo­bile Bus is a ser­vice that recog­nises prior learn­ing and ex­pe­ri­ence in the work­place to help peo­ple gain a for­mal qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

Skilling So­lu­tions Queens­land is the Queens­land Gov­ern­ment’s free train­ing and ca­reer in­for­ma­tion ser­vice.

Dale McAu­ley, who op­er­ates the skills bus, urged any­one who wants to turn their work­place skills into a qual­i­fi­ca­tion to come on down to Mow­bray St be­fore to­mor­row af­ter­noon.

He can then re­fer you to a net­work of con­tracted train­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions to un­der­take a for­mal as­sess­ment of your skills against the cho­sen qual­i­fi­ca­tions.

The process is called recog­ni­tion of prior learn­ing and it’s all about recog­nis­ing the skills that you al­ready have and ob­tain­ing a qual­i­fi­ca­tion in less time and at a re­duced cost.

The de­ci­sion could help you get a pro­mo­tion, work in a dif­fer­ent depart­ment or field.

If may also ben­e­fit those look­ing for a ca­reer change or keen to up-skill or re-en­ter the work­force.

To make an ap­point­ment call Dale on 0447 753 990.
