Are your projects meeting the NSW 'learning workers' requirement?
In NSW, the Infrastructure Skills Legacy Program (ISLP) requires 20% of the workforce on major projects* to be 'learning workers'.
A smart and efficient approach
Opportune can help you
Australia’s economic recovery is largely relying on the successful and continuing delivery of major infrastructure projects. Opportune has been working with some of the Australia’s largest construction companies to deliver the project management skills they rely on. Opportune can work with you to:
Meeting mandates on NSW Government infrastructure projects.
Whilst building new skills is essential, acknowledging* existing skills is a great way to deliver a formal qualification to your staff, meet the mandate and strengthen your tenders.
Acknowledging* the skills your staff have acquired.
Often in Infrastructure staff start working in project support roles without a formal qualification which reflects their experience. This process can also leave gaps in learnings, leaves the potential for variation in understanding and process which can have flow on affects to scope, budget and delivery.
*Referring to the BSB41515 – Certificate IV in Project Management Practice
Strengthen government tenders.
Formal qualifications for staff also help your business in competitive pitching situations. To be able to confirm that those working on a project have a nationally recognised qualification in project management delivers strength to tender responses.
Standardise staff skill sets.
The process to receive a formal qualification is an opportunity for you to confirm and standardise staff skills. Once completed, we can report back on all staff and make recommendations around skill gaps and opportunities for lifting capability.
Reward & recognise staff.
Our process rewards staff. They will understand that the business is undertaking a process to reward their hard work, it is something valuable to add to their CV and which boost their career aspirations. This increases staff morale, dedication and resilience.
This has allowed our project managers and those that want to be project managers to understand the whole process from inception to completion.
