No matter whether you have a workforce of 20 employees or a small team of just you and two other people, upskilling and training is paramount to a business’ success.
In small businesses, it’s unlikely you will have a staff member who is fluent in everything and anything. It’s also unlikely you will have a staff member for every job. This means you may not have someone proficient in social media or first aid. You may not have someone who lives and breathes accounting. You may not have someone who is solely dedicated to marketing your business. But there are ways to ensure that these things are covered. Finding ways to gain these skills and knowledge is a vital part of any business and there are plenty of training providers who will come to you.
Media School focuses on everything to do with social media. It’s a changing landscape in the world of social so not only is this relevant now for business, it’s also important to continually learn and develop your skills. There are courses on social media marketing, LinkedIn and other social media sites, blogging, content marketing, podcasting and more.
Media School specialises in one-day courses so they won’t take up too much of your precious time. And while you have the option of going to their learning studio in Sydney, they’re more than happy to come to a location of your choosing, anywhere in Australia. The wonderful thing is that no matter how advanced you are at social media, or whether you’re starting from the very bottom, the courses are strategic so there’ll always be useful insights to gain.
This one is for the women in the workplace and is a fantastic way to build your confidence. It’s interactive, fun, engaging and energetic and the point of the training is to create behaviour that sees results.
Blackstone offers workshops, corporate training and webinars, so all needs can be accommodated.

Let’s face it, anything can happen in any type of workplace. Someone can trip and fall or scolding hot coffee can spill. You need to be prepared for anything. In Australia, employers have a legal obligation to have at least one first aid trained person on site at all times. Of course, the requirements differ from state and state and the number of people who need to be trained increases depending on the amount of staff but even if it’s just yourself, it’s worth it to have knowledge of first aid training.
Enter St John. St John run private first aid courses and they’ll come to you. They bring all necessary equipment and resources and the training content is customised depending on the company’s particular needs, including practice scenarios.
