How the process works

Our on the job training model works most effectively when a workplace supervisor guides and instructs the participant through work related training and learning. A representative from the Training & Business Company will visit and discuss with you and your supervisor the most appropriate methods of delivery and complete a structured training plan.

Once a training plan has been completed you will receive your resources.  Work will then begin on self-paced learning activities in the agreed order.  Once both you and your supervisor feel ready, an assessor from the Training & Business Company will arrange a time to visit the workplace to conduct an assessment.

Training on the job will involve a combination of different methods and activities suited to the goals of the business and needs of the participant.

The flexibility in the way we deliver the qualification is central to success. You choose the what, how, when and where, and we facilitate you achieving your goal.
