TAFE NSW – Northern Sydney Institute (NSI) and the Centre for Learning innovation (CLI) are developing an online environmental sustainability training program for Bunnings employees across Australia.
Currently NSI delivers face to face training programs to Bunnings employees throughout NSW, focusing on product environmental sustainability. Team members are trained to advise customers on the sustainability of the products they sell, the long term savings and other product benefits.
The new online pilot program will see NSI provide online learning support. Offered in addition to Bunnings in-house learning programs, the program will be delivered to 32,000 Bunnings team members across the country.
“Working on this project with TAFE NSW - Northern Sydney Institute is a great opportunity for Bunnings,” said Craig Wallace, Bunnings NSW ACT State Operations Manager.
“The project will provide us with a program that will complement our suite of online learning (in-house) programs and will assist in our commitment to the development of our team members, so they can offer our customers the best possible advice on sustainable solutions.”
Employees who undertake the program will have the opportunity to complete an assessment option and gain recognition of prior learning for the nationally recognised training unit.
NSI Institute Director Kevin Harris said the online program provided a new and efficient platform for delivering environmental sustainability.
“The program aims to deliver the very best in environmental sustainability training,” he said.
“NSI is very pleased to be able to contribute to the further development of Bunnings employees and embrace environmental sustainability training. This new digital resource will see Bunnings employees be able to access training with greater ease and efficiency.”
