To survive and thrive in today's construction market, companies require the ability to manage budgets and team performance. In light of this operating environment for its members, the Civil Contractors Federation Queensland has recently partnered with The Australian Institute of Management (AIM) "to deliver a number of customised non-accredited short courses to specifically meet the needs of the civil construction industry."
In announcing the partnership, CCF QLD and AIM shared:
"These programs have been designed to develop the capabilities and skill sets of industry employees in a number of key areas. The ability to manage budgets and financial plans is essential in every industry and more specifically in the civil construction industry, as is the ability to lead effective and engaging meetings. Interpersonal and relationship skills are highly valuable to employers – as are teamwork skills, problem solving, leadership and values. These are all “soft skills” – personal attributes that are critical for a successful, lasting career. For employers, filling the soft skills gap leads to better commercial results, lower staff turnover and managers that are truly leaders, not just domineering delegators."
CCF QLD and AIM developed the courses with key industry representatives over many months, and are now ready to launch the first round of tailored training and education programs.
We've previously covered the importance genuine industry training, and strongly believe in the CCF's ability to deliver "training by the industry, for the industry".
