These programmes are designed for
individual change

The Work Readiness programme is designed to enable current and new employees, including graduates, to develop the people skills which are essential for them to add value to their organisation as quickly as possible. This programme is delivered over 3 months, with online content and in-built support from GCWAL facilitators.

What Does the Programme Involve?

Each participant will undertake a real-life Work-Readiness project to develop their people skills. As they undertake their duties at the workplace, the graduates will have invaluable opportunities to apply the learning resources available to develop essential skills such as working with others, communication, problem-solving, taking feedback and time management and to reflect and learn from their experiences.

Participants will complete a project plan, monthly reflective reports and a final report on their experiences and future plans. Successful completion of this programme will result in the award of certification.

Facilitating Action Learning Teams

This programme is designed for managers who wish to use the action learning process to plan and implement projects with their teams to not only achieve project outcomes but also learning outcomes.

The Action Learning process enables a focus on real work problems and provides opportunities to produce individual and team learning which has significance for work. This process also encourages greater collaboration between the manager and their team while problem-solving and finding solutions and generates a tangible return on investment through the development and implementation of work-based projects. It also enables innovation and creativity through the sharing of ideas by the manager and team member and enables the manager and team members to learn and reflect on their experiences, which will be useful in subsequent projects.

GCWAL also provides a customised action learning programme entitled Empowering Community Engagement Professionals which will provide community engagement professionals with the opportunity to participate in a collaborative, like-minded community while developing capability to effectively facilitate action learning teams to develop, implement and learn from the implementation of organisational specific Aboriginal workforce participation strategies.

What Do these Programmes Involve?

Participants are introduced to key concepts and practices of Action Learning. They will each identify a specific issue or problem for an action learning project which they wish to implement in their workplace. They will then develop a project plan and then implement the project with their action learning set.

Participants will complete a project plan and an implementation report detailing the action learning process used. Successful completion of this programme will result in the award of certification and an option to further certification and pathways to other programmes.
