Targeted Priorities Prevocational and Part Qualification Program
(Smart and Skilled)
Living Planit has been providing high quality corporate Project Management training across diverse industries and professions for 15 years.
Project Management is sometimes seen as restrictive and stifling innovation, yet we have revised designs and proposals to support new technology and work environments.
The future of work is rapidly changing. The rate of automation and innovation affecting the current workforce and the demands among employers that employees attain transferable skills sets rather than/or as a supplement to full qualifications is more apparent than ever before.
As an approved NSW Smart and Skilled Training Provider, Living Planit provides Targeted Priorities Prevocational and Part Qualification (TPPPQ) Programs to improve the capability of employees and those moving into work to maintain relevance as jobs augment through technology. This Program is a vehicle that focuses on training people develop the skills they need to:
- Get a job
- Make a more informed decision about undertaking a full qualification
- Transition to new employment (change jobs)
- Remain in employment and reduce the risk of redundancy
- Up skill into new processes or technology to maintain employment or gain new employment
- Gain more work where they are underemployed (not working full time)
This Program is administered by Training Services NSW (TSNSW). The Department has responded to emerging industries and identified industries needs through specific sub-programs that support priority industries and priority groups.
- Long term unemployed
- Students living in rural or remote areas
- Job seekers (including Centrelink benefit recipients)
- Underemployed workers who need further training to work more hours
- Mature aged workers returning to the workforce
