The world of work has changed vocational learning must change too

Today’s jobs market is candidate-driven. Wages are up, unemployment is down and you have the luxury of being selective in who you want to work for. You can negotiate to work remotely, and set your own hours; it’s the employer’s turn to have to find new ways to attract and retain talent. 

Did you know that when a person trains or works in 1 job, actually acquire the skills for 13 other jobs? Only 6% of adults end up in the career they wanted to be in when they were at school. The average Australian will change employers 17 times across 5 different industries throughout their working life.*

This is exciting for business owners, as the workforce will see a fluid motion of fresh perspectives. Teams will come together with more lateral skills, as candidates realise how portable their skills really are.

 

"The portability of skills has important implications for how we think about our careers and provide career education. "

It’s time for a change

Sick of feeling STUCK in a dead-end job you hate, working for a company you’re ashamed of…?

The new workplace is human-centred and based on teamwork and continuous upskilling. But who has time to work during the day and balance family and social life after hours? Let me guess, your boss probably expects you to do workplace training off the clock right? If the last few years have taught us anything, it is that our time with friends and family is super important to maintaining a sense of connection and feeling good about our lives.

My Skills learning pathways allows you to select and be in control of what you study and when you do it.

  • self-paced – means you can learn at your own pace
  • designed by you – so you are in control of your skills
  • available via smartphone and tablet

My Skills is giving the power back to you to choose your own pathway. Sick of seeing your friends earning more money? Tired of being stuck indoors all day? Dreaming of the freedom to start your own business and work from anywhere?

Imagine being able to design your skill set, take control of what you do and create own own adventure!

This story is 100% true!

I like to give my own team freedom.  Create their own projects, and design things their way. I am not a micro-manager. I have a team that is a mixture of ages, and stages in life. Mums, Millenials, Gen Z’s, Grandparents, Single parents, and Indigenous team members.

I have mums working full time from home, Millenials and Gen Z’s who work remotely some days, and are office based on others.

I give my team opportunities to develop different skills to use now and in future roles. Our team works so well because each team member is valued and supported.

As a CEO, what I look for when hiring staff is a positive outlook and the ability to work together. I know that the average employee changes jobs around every 18 months to 2 years. To support this, I cross-train my team and upskill them regularly.

I also work a few days per week remotely, and as my job requires me to travel often, I work from anywhere, hotels, cafes even Mcdonald’s when I need to. By embracing tools such as Google Drive, Zoom, and Teams, I can be accessed whenever and wherever my team needs me to be. 

I have even been known to work poolside with a cocktail in hand!

Imagine creating a work-life balance for yourself, just like this!
