FREE WORKFORCE PLANNING COURSE FOR QUEENSLAND SMALL BUSINESSES
17th February 2023
The Queensland Government and University of the Sunshine Coast have teamed up to create a new workforce micro-credential.
The free course will help small and medium-sized business owners, and managers struggling to find staff, take on the task of workforce planning.
This course will follow the structure of the successful Business Planning Course, which also received Queensland Government support, with over 250 people completing, and more participants expected to begin their studies in the coming months.
The Palaszczuk Government has partnered with the University of the Sunshine Coast to develop a Workforce Planning Course for business owners and managers.
It follows the successful Business Planning Course, also developed by the University of the Sunshine Coast with support from the Queensland Government.
People who complete these micro-credentials will be eligible for subject credits if they study the Graduate Certificate in Business with the University of the Sunshine Coast.
“I am excited for the opportunities the Workforce Planning Course will bring to the businesses in the Nicklin electorate,” said Mr Skelton.
“The resources and information the course provides, and the experience of the educators at the University of the Sunshine Coast will deliver great benefits to small and medium sized businesses of every industry.”
