2018 is off to a great start for The Deering Group. In February, we launched our training venture, and ran our first flagship offering course in Field-based Training and Assessment with great success!

We have partnered with the Perth based Registered Training Organisation (RTO), Training Services Australia, to enable us to be the first to offer this fantastic opportunity for workplaces on the East Coast of Australia.

Hosted at our offices in Fortitude Valley, our week long course was focussed on delivering the skills and knowledge for people who will train and assess in the real world.

Consisting of two modules, Provide Work Skill Instruction (3 days) and Carry Out Workplace Assessment (2 days), upon conclusion our participants will receive an AQF outcome in 10235NAT – Course in Field-based Training and Assessment following the completion of post-course workplace activities.

‘Both the course material and the presentation were pitched at the right level……a range of techniques, good mix of activities and the application of the methods to different workplaces.’ Michael (IT)

Our attendees were from across various industry sectors including Oil & Gas, IT and Transport, and most importantly were eager to learn. They completed the course with a workbook full of knowledge and loads of enthusiasm.

Over the week, the attendees had to deliver a 20 minute presentation on a ‘negotiated’ topic that included electrical safety, language skills, photography and IT and communication. The participants were also required to deliver a one-on-one feedback assessment session.

Our excellent facilitator, James, tailored presentation topics to ensure the course was fun, engaging and inclusive.

Right now our students are putting their training and assessment learnings into practice back in their workplace which has lead to improved processes, added value, and most importantly enjoying the experience!

But don’t take our word for it, here is some feedback from our participants –

Facilitator is a brilliant trainer……very encouraging and engaging with real life examples.’ Shafique (Control Room Operations – Oil & Gas)

I felt fully supported by the training material……great role modelling, I learned heaps.’ Nick (Transport)

Content very valuable and presented at the perfect pace.’ Kane (Oil & Gas)

We will be hosting the course once a month in our Brisbane office, so make sure you check out our training calendar for upcoming dates here. We look forward to training you all very soon!
