Looking at 2020 for Job Skills Queensland

2020 is shaping up to be a great year for the Queensland job market with some great incentives for employees and employers. The Queensland Government is continuing to invest in creating opportunities for job-seekers and employers.

JSQ increases its capacity

I have some positive news to start off the year. I have FINALLY completed my TAE upgrade, which gives me the necessary qualification to deliver accredited training and qualifications. The upgrade has given me more knowledge on Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) which is invaluable for working with learners that may need additional support with their reading, writing and learning. The TAE will also allow me to deliver first-aid training which will be a goal for this year.

Onto further study!

Just as I have completed my TAE upgrade, in the spirit of lifelong learning I have been accepted into a Masters of Applied Psychology at Central Queensland University. This is minimum two years of study but I am looking forward to how I can apply my new knowledge to the benefit of my clients and participants.

Soft skills are some of the most important qualities for employees to have.

This is what Job Skills Queensland is all about; developing peoples soft skills to improve their chances of finding and maintaining meaningful employment. There is enough evidence to prove it’s value in the workplace so don’t ignore that your employees and/or participants may need to hone in on these skills to be more productive and therefore successful in the workplace!

All the best in 2020
