A pilot study conducted by the Construction and Property Services Industry Skills Council (CPSISC) into the training of women in the NSW contract cleaning industry has resulted in a number of recommendations being made regarding the need for a Diploma in Management course for the up-skilling of existing women employees identified as having management potential.
In acknowledging the importance of these recommendations, CPSISC is working with the Lennox Institute to create a new program to meet industry needs.
This initiative means a Government funded, industry specific Diploma in Management course will be offered to NSW employers in early 2011.
It is envisaged that the course will be 12 full days, 9am to 4.30pm, either monthly or twice monthly depending on participants’ preference, conducted at Lennox Institute’s premises in Blacktown.
