WHO SHOULD STUDY THIS QUALIFICATION?

This qualification equips students with the skills and knowledge required to supervise day-to-day laboratory operations within a work / functional area or project team.

The course is designed for lab workers who:

  • Are currently in (or intended for) senior or supervisory roles
  • Report to scientists, engineers, medical staff, or other laboratory or quality managers
  • Are required to make decisions quickly and deal with changing priorities and frequent interruptions
  • Manage the competing demands of various clients and stakeholders
  • Need to adapt to advances in technology and equipment
  • Would benefit from enhanced capabilities in planning, allocation of tasks, recording and reporting of laboratory outputs, coordination, and quality assurance
  • Are responsible for ensuring that products and services meet customer expectations and are provided safely and efficiently
  • Contribute to the development and effective implementation of operational policies as well as the technical training of other personnel
WHY INVEST IN STAFF TRAINING?

Training drives growth and enhanced organisational financial performance.1


   Compliance

Many industries are required by various governance bodies to provide staff training. Whether your organisation is regulated by a state building, healthcare, or other regulatory authority – or is one of the many laboratories in Australia accredited with the National Association of Testing Authorities Australia (NATA), LTT can help! We work with employers to design, develop and implement tailored solutions that meet training obligations and provide detailed evidence of programs delivered to support compliance.


   Productivity

Engaged and skilled workers are more productive – and employee training programs assist in both regards! Professional development can cultivate corporate culture by sustaining personal growth and optimism and empowering workers to fulfil their potential.2  In fact, happy workers are 12% more productive.3  In addition to ‘soft’ benefits, employee learning is considered critical to organisational performance and training can have strong positive effects on both labour productivity and profitability – in fact, new hires that undertake an onboarding program become competent four months faster.4  Actively disengaged employees make up over 80% of the Australian workforce, at a cost of $33.5 to $42.1 billion to Australian businesses each year!5  Investing in continuous training and development helps to increase employee engagement, efficiency and proficiency – and avoid the damaging effects of disengaged workers.


   Retention

The cost of lost productivity due to turnover in Australia over 12 months is $3.8 billion.5

The provision of continuous learning and development options for staff helps to decrease turnover and bolster organisational performance by:

  1. Increasing job satisfaction and employee loyalty
  2. Improving corporate culture and reputation among potential employees and clients
  3. Attracting employees who are interested in bettering themselves and growing with your company
  4. Facilitating internal promotions – shown to cost significantly less, perform significantly better, and be up to 20% more likely to stay with your company than external hires!6

In addition to technical acumen, a well-structured training program builds skills in communication, team work and leadership at each stage of the development pathway, allowing employers to create a pool of capable staff, determine individual strengths and weaknesses, and identify potential candidates for promotion.

Providing employees with opportunities for career development increases staff retention rates and helps a business build a strong and loyal team.

As LTT also trains external students in our training centres in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth, we can work with companies looking to hire lab assistants, lab techs, pathology collection staff and more, enabling employers to circumvent the usual expenses involved in training and recruitment – including the costs of advertising job vacancies. Just let us know about the workers you need! Complete an enquiry form here or free call 1300 588 588 and ask for the Business Development Manager for your state.


   Agility

Employer-supported training boosts competitive advantage: skills development assists firms to adopt new technology, implement innovative HR management practices, and improve productivity.7  Well-trained workers support the long-term success of their organisations by facilitating flexibility and responsiveness to changes in market conditions.

TRAINEESHIP BENEFITS

LTT accesses government incentives wherever possible to deliver lower cost accredited vocational education and training in job related and technical skills. In addition to subsidised rates for certain qualifications, the Australian Government supports businesses to enrol new staff in traineeships through financial incentives and payroll tax exemptions and rebates. These benefits can be used to offset the cost of training for existing employees. 

Launching a training program doesn’t mean disrupting your business – complete an enquiry form here or free call 1300 588 588 and ask for the Business Development Manager to request a training partnership proposal.
