THE REVOLUTION OF TRAINING IN AUSTRALIA
Work Skills has been proudly training Australia’s workforce since 1987, that’s more than 30 years.
More than 50,000 students have successfully graduated in qualifications or short courses. Work Skills pioneered face to face training in the workplace rather than the traditional classroom. We created and launched WOLAS (Work Skills Online Learning and Assessment System) more than a decade ago so that students, employers and stakeholders can access digital learning anywhere, anytime. Work Skills delivers a wide range of qualifications across the Automotive, Hospitality, Business and Media industries.
HERE'S WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING ABOUT US
Work Skills has really worked their system into the way we work here at All Saints Anglican School. Their trainers are experienced in their industry and it’s all backed up with a great online learning system. The clarity of online learning has been a good fit with the technology-based subject and stands out as a modern solution for training.
I was extremely impressed with how flexible they have been. We love WOLAS and want to use it more!
Director of Multimedia
The training has been really good and the online system used for training works well. When the trainers come here, everything seems to roll quite smoothly and the trainers are able to answer all of my apprentice’s questions. They’ve been really easy to get along with and because they come from a workshop background, we’re all able to talk the same language
Tyreplus Burleigh Heads has used Work Skills training and assessment services for our staff for over 10 years. We have found their on the job training methods to be very flexible and reliable and fit perfectly with our busy tyre shop. We like how the Trainers customise the training to suit the types of jobs we do here and this means our students see how the learning applies to their job. When it came to obtaining my own qualification naturally I chose Work Skills to complete my qualification through RPL, which was a rewarding way to show how my years of experience is of value. I enjoyed the experience.
Bar Alto uses Work Skills training service for many reasons. We find the experience, knowledge and passion of the Trainers are exceptional. The Trainers are very personable and hands on. They take time to listen and understand the business’s and students’ needs.

Another innovation of Work Skills is the WOLAS electronic system because it minimises the amount of paperwork required and allows us to better track the student’s progress which is fantastic for a busy restaurant like ours.
Not a lot of RTO’s send trainers out to help demonstrate new industry trends and practices to students, but Work Skills is doing just that!
Some of our students really strive to learn and put in the extra effort. Work Skills’ system gives a lot of opportunities to students like this. It allows them to move through the qualification at their own pace. It’s a flexible program that allows students to learn and complete work quickly if they want to.

USQ has used Work Skills’ services for several years. We find the Work Skills online learning and assessment system (WOLAS) to be fantastic.

Additionally, our trainees find their workplace assessment to be very easily managed through WOLAS as they can complete and submit their work in one easy system. The Work Skills trainers are very skilful and knowledgeable and are always approachable and very reliable, especially when responding to trainees and their supervisor’s requests.
