New Courses for 2019

Talent and Leadership Development has several new courses on offer for 2019 as listed below:

  • Intermediate Project Management - The second in a three-part training series that will provide you with underlying knowledge and best practices to manage a range of projects. It will build on your understanding of project management basics and will take a structured approach to managing and tracking your project to achieve your goals. The course will also focus on stakeholder engagement, communications and project team management.
  • Advanced Project Management - the final in a three-part training series designed to provide you with project management methods and best practices to bring your project to the next level. It will help you apply your project management processes and tools throughout the project life cycle. The course will focus on viability and value of the project, rather than just seeing a project to its end.
  • Introduction to Web Content Management System (CMS Edit+) - a two-day workshop aimed at staff requiring access to manage web content housed in the Squiz Matrix CMS and have little or no experience in web content management.
  • Web Content Management Fast Track (CMS Edit+) - this one-day course is designed for staff who require access to manage web content housed in the Squiz Matrix CMS, have experience using web or learning content management systems and are confident in learning new programs.
  • Web Accessibility Testing and Repairing - learn to optimise our digital content to help ensure everyone has equal access.  This half-day course takes a hands on approach to identifying and resolving accessibility issues in web page content.
  • Appreciating Diversity using DISC - This one-day training course assists you in building a synergistic work environment which is important to enhance productivity and engagement.  It uses the Everything DISC profile to explore different work styles and provides useful insights into where we may need to flex our style in order to better meet the needs of our work colleagues.

Staff are encouraged to utilise the following online resources for training and development in areas not provided as internal face to face programs:

If you have a specific development requirement that is not covered by the TLD program or the online resources, then please contact TLD directly to discuss your needs.
