Accellier is the provider of choice for thousands of people and hundreds of organisations in Australia and around the world. Under our former name SAVE Training, we built a solid foundation on which Accellier now stands, embodying almost 10 years of service to Australia’s Tertiary and Vocational Education Sector. As a testament to this, since our inception in 2010 we have spent only a few thousand dollars on advertising. Our clients are almost entirely referred from our happy graduates and business customers.
Accellier is the trading name of SAVE Training Pty Ltd and is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO 32395) that offers a range of nationally recognised courses in education and business Australia wide through our online and face to face courses.
Our mission is to enhance people’s value through excellence in service and learning outcomes.
Since 2018 Accellier (under our previous name SAVE Training) has provided training to a prominent organisation within the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.
Accellier was approached to assist over 50 highly skilled professionals within the organisation achieve Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. Our team designed a range of flexible programs in consultation with the education unit. This included face to face and online delivery, as well as site-visits, webinars and 1-on-1 support for individuals. We produced industry specific content and examples to allow workers to complete the course in a more relevant and familiar setting.
Three main areas posed challenges in this project:
1. Geographical location of participants
Participants located in branches all over the state meant it was challenging to bring everyone together in the same place at the same time for lengthy periods of face to face training.
We arranged for shorter face to face sessions in strategic locations combined with relevant workplace projects and online learning meant we could help people complete the qualification while reducing the cost of flights, accommodation and time off work.
2. Hands-on people learn better face to face
Some people are just more accustomed to hands-on face-to-face learning and may find more self-paced digital learning and assessment methods a barrier to success.
To mitigate this we identified individuals who were particularly struggling and provided additional 1-on-1 tuition using video-conferencing, screen-share and phone calls to provide guidance and coaching through more technical tasks. We also provided a range of additional flexible options for follow-up face-to-face workshops on site.
3. Time and engagement
Due to competing priorities and emergency responsibilities in relation to firefighting, participants sometimes found it difficult to allocate time to the self-paced and online aspects of the course. To help address this issue we liaised closely with managers to assist with coordination of time. We also individually contacted participants personally to offer support and guidance and to schedule catch-ups at a mutually convenient time. Often we worked with people after hours and on weekends to provide guidance, instruction and direction on completing workplace projects.
One of the managers John Morriss added that one of the best aspects of the course was the use of real life examples that were relevant to his industry and role.Baiada Poultry
