Upskilling Management

Through its various subsidiaries, IOR Energy is directly involved in oil exploration and production, refining and fuel distribution. Founded in 1984, IOR Energy has built a reputation for innovation and practical technology to assist customers operating in remote regions where transport and operating costs are high and reliable supporting services problematic.

The Manufacturing Skills Queensland PPP Funding provided an excellent opportunity to test the benefits of Management Training for newly promoted managers. IOR’s managers had the experience, but wanted formalised training. This was especially important to their newly promoted managers. Fast tracking new skills and knowledge to ensure their new managers were ready to fulfil their roles and build the business was key to their success.

The flexibility of Upskilled’s training formats provided an ideal solution. Delivered in class format (1 day per month), Upskilled’s Management course enabled staff to study around a full time work schedule and busy home life. Students enjoyed quality contact with the trainer and also benefited greatly from group work and input from other students.

The training Upskilled delivered was Nationally Recognised, meaning employees received a Statement of Attainment for the Units of Competency they  successfully completed.

LCC were also able to access the NSW Local Government’s Skills Strategy program which meant the training was fully funded.

The staff at IOR experienced an immediate positive impact in the workplace, reporting improved management skills such as:

• Improving communication with team members
• Better delegating techniques
• Enhanced conflict resolution methods
• Improvements in overall team effectiveness

Upskilled’s flexible delivery options and quality training will be a great training solution for the IOR Team in the future. The up-to-date and relevant course material, along with the choice of delivery options will enable IOR Energy to deliver training to staff across Queensland in the future. Upskilled and the Manufacturing Skills Queensland PPP Funding was a great choice for IOR Energy.

Productivity Places Program (PPP) is a joint Commonwealth and Queensland Government Initiative brokered by Manufacturing Skills QLD.

Upskilled’s Management course has given me the knowledge I need to build on my experience to be successful in my new role. Finding a training solution to fit around my work and family life has been a challenge, but Upskilled’s 1 day per month class format was perfect for me. Now I have the skills to manage my staff more effectively, and to build better relationships with my staff to ensure we meet our goals.

Since completing the course I can comfortably say that the skills and knowledge that I have learned with Upskilled will certainly help me in becoming a more complete manager. I have now also enrolled in a Business course and look forward to completing this qualification with Upskilled.”
