Registered by Vetab
B A Initiatives Pty Ltd, trading as Shire Coaching and Training, was Registered by VETAB. RTO Code 91056. VETAB is the Registered authority in New South Wales, Australia.
In the past we held the scope for the Certificate 1V Assessment and Workplace Training (BSZ40198) and offered training and assessing for this qualification. Barbara has been training trainers and assessors for this qualification since the mid 90's via other RTO's - St. George & Sutherland Community College, Equals Australia and Ideas Unlimited International, before Shire Coaching & Training became VETAB registered.
Due to changes initiated by the responsible Skills Council, IBSA (Innovation & Business Skills Australia), the Training Package for Assessment & Workplace Training (BSZ98) has been phased out. The National Quality Council has endorsed the new Certificate 1V TAA40104 Training and Assessment. Shire Coaching & Training has not added the new Certificate 1V TAA to it's scope, but has partnered with another RTO to serve our clients.
This course is designed for people who will prepare and deliver training in the workplace, and/or need to assess people against competencies in the workplace. Attendance at the course does not automatically give you the qualification.
Barbara running a session on "Adult Learning Principles" at the ICF Conference, Brisbane, November 2005
All B A Initiatives training and workshops apply adult learning principles including experiential and activity based learning. An effective cycle of learning is blended into the process catering to all learning styles. Individuals expand on personal experience through reflecting, conceptualising, practicing and debriefing.
Participants are encouraged to actively involve themselves in solo and group exercises, games, role plays and interactive processes. These offer variety and are enhanced with music, colour and frequent changes of pace. All games, processes and activities are designed to draw out key learning points for individuals and teams.
Open discussions help each person to decide on why, how and when to apply what has been learned.
This approach provides individuals with the ability to change behaviours and attitudes and to transfer learning to their own work and life situations.
