What's on in the Central Highlands

Supervisors and Managers Training Program

Sold Out - EOI open for future programs

UPDATE: Due to overwhelming interest, all five cohorts are now full! However, we are seeking additional funding to host future programs and would welcome Expressions of Interest for these. Register your interest with CHDC Regional Skills Development Coordinator Brad Stallard on bstallard@chdc.com.au.  

CHDC, with Queensland Government funding, is working with businesses to identify the skills gaps for current and emerging jobs and industries in the Central Highlands region and support future industry demand for skilled local people. The Regional Skills Investment Strategy (RSIS) will support the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT) and CHDC to identify current and emerging jobs in key industry sectors and ensure there is a supply of skilled local people to meet this demand.

The project, through the engagement with industry and the stakeholder reference group, has identified the deficiency in leadership and management skills for emerging and new supervisors and managers. To assist with improving the initial skills of a new and emerging supervisor/manager, CHDC has engaged CQUniversity to deliver the Team Leaders Skill Set to build capacity in the following areas of:
  • communication
  • leading team effectiveness
  • effective workplace relationships
  • implementing operational plans

This workshop is funded by the Queensland Government under the Higher Level Skills program. Students will enrol in the BSB42518 Certificate IV in Small Business Management qualification and exit with the BSBSS00063 skill set, as an initiative under the Central Highlands Regional Skills Investment Strategy project.

A student contribution fee of $100 will apply.

The first cohort of the Supervisors and Managers Training Program celebrate their first day of training at the CQU Emerald campus.
