Aurora Energy has once again joined forces with TasTAFE to deliver a suite of customised qualifications for its employees.

Sixteen Aurora Energy employees undertook the Formal Qualifications Program, achieving qualifications in Certificate III in Business, Diploma of Leadership and Management and Diploma of Learning and Management Strategic.

It brings the total number of employees over the past two years to have obtained a nationally recognised qualification to 68.

The tailored program provides direct benefits to Aurora Energy, integrating with its culture, values and strong customer service focus.

Aurora Energy CEO Rebecca Kardos said the energy retailer remained committed to supporting its Tasmanian workforce by providing opportunities to obtain formal qualifications together with maintaining a workplace that was up-skilled and future-proofed.

“As an organisation in an ever-changing industry we need to ensure we have people with the capabilities and mindset to adapt and this is best achieved by investing in knowledge, skills and leadership development across the business,” Mrs Kardos said.

“To have a workforce which embraces this challenge makes it all the more easier.”

TasTAFE CEO Jenny Dodd said TasTAFE was proud to continue its long-standing working relationship with Aurora Energy to provide tailored training for its employees.

“Like all TasTAFE courses, the emphasis of the training is practical with learning programs structured so that they can be applied back in the workplace,” Ms Dodd said.

“This practical approach means that Aurora Energy receives a tangible benefit from the investment and participants can clearly see the value of their training and how it directly relates to their work.”
