BSB40520 Certificate IV in Leadership and Management

Juicebox recently engaged Future Institute of Australia to conduct leadership and management training for 8 of our senior staff across various disciplines.

The course content was carefully considered and customised to our business, meaning our team was able to discuss real scenarios and issues, applying their learnings to practical examples relevant to their role.

The feedback from the participants was that the facilitation was of a high standard and the sessions were engaging and informative, striking a great balance between theory and practical application including role playing and team presentations.

The reporting and updates to the business on the progress of individuals within the course was regular and detailed.

We would highly recommend engaging Future Institute of Australia to develop and grow young emerging leaders in your business.

BSB40520 Certificate IV in Leadership and Management

Hofmann Engineering have been working with the Future Institute to meet our leadership and management training needs for a few years now.

Our experience so far shows that the fully customised Certificate IV course tailored to our needs, using actual company policies and procedures, has had a positive impact on our front line operational leaders. Moreover, the course content is contemporary and relevant, the facilitation and coaching is of a very high standard, and the assessments are measurable and challenging.

It is clear that we are getting a return on the investment as we see more of the leadership and management techniques being utilised in our day to day operation.

Hofmann Engineering has plans to further engage the Future Institute for more training in the near future, and we have no hesitation in recommending the Future Institute to other organisations.

Leadership and Management Course

“Our experience with the Future Institute of Australia regarding the planning, delivery and evaluation of a customised Certificate IV in Leadership and Management Course for our emerging leaders has been outstanding. The communication has been excellent, the course content has been customised to our specific needs and links to real policies, documents and scenarios (not just generic case studies) and the facilitator has been exceptional. The comprehensive suite of evaluation and assessment tools has enabled us to measure the progress of participants and has given a clear indication of the excellent return on investment we have achieved with this program. I highly recommend the Future Institute of Australia to any company looking for highly effective training that creates behavioural change and delivers measurable results.”

Training Package Redesign

“We engaged the services of Future Institute of Australia to redesign our Cultural Awareness Training package. From the outset, Cecelia and Janet were very welcoming and professional with all staff involved. They were particularly understanding of our needs and provided forums to gain an appreciation of what the final product should look like. Our staff were able to have input and co-design the presentation with many options recommended by Cecelia and Janet.

We are very satisfied with our new look presentation which will enhance our interactions with our stakeholders and allow us to professionally showcase the wonderful culture that Murujuga has to offer.”

Customised eLearning Development Program

“LG Professionals WA engaged The Future Institute to design an e-learning module program suitable for local governments across WA. Right from the start of the process, Michael, Janet and the Team strongly demonstrated their experience and knowledge in this area; their approach was methodical and agile.

They understood the diversity of the local government sector means that consultation is a key part of the development process and the Future Institute team worked with us through this with sound advice and support along the way.

The end product is something that as an Association we are really proud of – it’s contemporary, user-centric and suitable for all 139 local governments with varying size and scale.

The team at The Future Institute was always responsive and responded to all our queries timely and efficiently. I would highly recommend their services.”

“In 2018 Ausdrill and Future Institute of Australia began working together to develop our Leadership Development Program, customised to the nationally accredited Certificate IV in Leadership and Management. This program is currently being rolled out to nearly 100 frontline leaders across the Ausdrill business. We see this program as an essential tool in the development of those leaders, providing them with the most up to date tools, skills and knowledge to lead their respective teams effectively and improve performance.

The Future Institute team has developed a leadership program that is closely aligned to Ausdrill’s – Principles, and workplace scenarios. They have worked closely with our team, almost as an extension of our business, by providing essential skills and resources to make a program like this successful.

Customised Leadership Program

Thank you to the FIOA team for all the effort in developing the BG&E Leadership for Change programme. We have all learned so much and had lot of fun along the journey.

The proactive approach your team brings to this environment has really enhanced our experience and brought a lot of new and inspirational topics to our next generation of leaders within the business.

The influence of the training has been felt by all of us, with a more open mindset to Emotional Intelligence and individual leadership styles. We look forward to completing the second session once the world opens up post Covid 19.

Customised Training Solutions

To whom it may concern,

As an outcome of some excellent skills training delivered to the whole Meerkats team in 2019, Janet from Future institute developed and delivered a coaching programme for one of my key staff members that created a change in performance that saw the business rewarded, and more importantly saw my team member grow and thrive. Quite simply, it changed the course of her career.

This is one of many examples of the positive experiences we have enjoyed, but every interaction we have with Future Institute creates value for our business. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.

Custom Built eLearning Cultural Awareness Package

“Please accept this letter as a testimonial of the work completed by the Future Institute of Australia for Barminco in relation to an e-learning package that was required to support our Zone 5 project, Botswana. This package represented the first form of exposure for many expats preparing to mobilize to the Zone 5 Project and as such provided vital information about Botswana, the people of Botswana (Batswana), security, health, safety, language, culture and conditions that our people needed to be informed of in order to assume their roles respectfully and embark upon a deeper cultural discovery journey when they arrive.

Future Institute of Australia delivered an e-learning program that hit the mark. It provides participants with information in an intuitive and interesting manner that ensures curiosity is peaked and foundational knowledge is retained.”

Executive Coaching

To whom it may concern,

Janet really understands how different people think and what makes them tick, so she was able to tailor my learning in a way that would resonate with me. She pushed me into setting my own learning challenges, and guided me into having my own ‘aha’ moments – as a result the overall experience felt really personal, thought provoking and the learnings have really stuck with me. Janet was supportive, relatable, caring and I felt I could reach out to her at any time.

 The skills I developed with Future Institute definitely contributed to me taking the next step in my career.

Coaching & bespoke training solutions

Embarking on the creation of a new customer service function within a well-established business, I approached Future Institute of Australia for coaching support for myself and another team member to be able to undertake the set-up in-house. The team at Future Institute were quick to understand our business and what we were trying to achieve and, without over-engineering anything, were able to tailor a solution to suit our needs. It was this bespoke approach that gave us the confidence to set up a series of three workshop/training sessions targeted at different staff groups within the business. The feedback from staff was outstanding for all sessions. The material was relevant and the workshop style was interactive and engaging. The training really helped embed the change management process within the company and was great for team building, cross departmental relations and morale overall. I would not have any hesitation in recommending Future Institute of Australia for their flexible approach, quality delivery, value for money and customer service. Other managers within our company are now also approaching them for training proposals.

Customised Leadership Training

The team at Future Institutes have been exceptional. After deciding to place our core supervisory team on a management and leadership program, we were looking for a vibrant and energetic RTO which could bring modern, innovative ideas to help deliver this program into our organisation. After an initial meeting with Michael and Janet where they conducted an in-depth analysis of the training needs for the group, their vision and structured approach became evident and we were very confident that the team would be fully engaged in the training program.

The design and the associated costs for the training were clearly outlined and all schedules were highlighted and constructed to fit into our operational requirements.

We have only embarked on this journey, but can already see visible changes in the approach of the leadership team and look forward to more results during the completion of further modules on the program.

Excellently Delivered Leadership Training

Our organisation, a delegate of 8 managers, recently completed the Cert IV Certification in Leadership and Management.
I would like to thank Future Institute of Australia (FIA) for delivering a well balanced and constructed course. After meeting several RTO’s, we selected FIA due to their professionalism and quality approach in delivering a training program.
In regard to trainer’s, Tanya’s excellent knowledge of the training material and her enthusiasm to deliver the course contents, helped keep the training group stay focused and get through the assessments.
The entire team have been great to work with from directors, trainers and the office support staff. I would highly recommend FIA to all seeking out a quality RTO for their organisation’s training requirements.

Underground Mining Supervisor Training

“we went to market to find a suitable training provider that would be prepared to work closely with us, to develop a bespoke leadership program for our 120+ supervisors nationally.

After an initial meeting with Future Institute of Australia I was convinced that they were the right fit for our business, based on their focus to clearly understand our training needs and their experience in the VET sector.   We have now been working with Future Institute of Australia for over a year and have developed a customised Certificate IV in Leadership and Management.  This is being rolled out across the country and so far the feedback from all involved including the supervisors has been exceptional.

I would strongly recommend Future Institute of Australia for any organisation looking for a training solution for their leaders”.

Organisational Development

Training and up-skilling our staff has always been a top priority at Messages On Hold, because competent, skilled staff mean happy, satisfied customers. The Future Institute program provided our team with the perfect training ground to improve their leadership, communication, conflict resolution and business skills. The trainer was both personable and knowledgeable and helped ensure that every participant felt supported throughout the course. The online resources were easy to use and extremely informative and the administration was easy and efficient. The timing and delivery was flexible and aligned with our specific business needs.  We look forward to seeing our newly trained team in action, putting in place the skills and lesson learnt.

Save 2 hours a Week Workshop

The “Save two hours per week” workshop is all about change, however Janet and John instilled that the biggest change was within each individual.

The material was relevant and the session had a good mix of theory and practical elements.

Janet was able to keep the delivery fresh and interesting throughout the 4 hour workshop and, from the start, guided trainees towards an agreed outcome.

It was well received by the participants, with applicable content, examples and discussion. I am optimistic that this workshop will be the catalyst for managing time more effectively within our organisation.

HR Manager

Sales and Leadership Training

“We selected the Future Institute as our learning partner for the development of our Sales Team and Managers at HealthEngine. From the get-go, FIOA have been incredibly receptive to our needs as a fast-paced, ever-changing technology start-up.

They have met our many requests to customise the learning schedule and content, to ensure the training remains relevant, interesting and up-to-date for our teams. We receive tangible outcomes at the end of each unit, such as methods, tools are guidelines that we can apply directly to our organisation.

They listen to feedback, are flexible in their delivery schedule, and are incredibly thorough in their communication and follow-up.

The trainer works hard to make the experience informative and useful, but also enjoyable – we often hear laughter coming from the classroom and students report on positive learning experiences.”

Hospitality Leadership Training

The Hotel employs a particularly diverse workforce, including numerous nationalities, cultures, age groups and experience. For some time I had been looking for a Management and Leadership program to improve communication and strengthen leadership from Supervisory level through to Management Executives. I was really impressed with the Future Institutes business model and the wealth of experience that the Directors and the trainer brought to the table. A training needs analysis was then conducted with 30 of my team. The manner in which Janet and Mike engaged with, and elicited information from the group worked extremely well. There were a couple of surprises for me in the findings, however I feel very confident that Future Institute provides the right dynamic and learning environment to assist our business. I’m looking forward to the results as we move forward.

Business and Customer Service Training

Future Institute of Australia recently conducted a training needs analysis on my organisation to identify where I could assist my customer service team and managers improve their skills to be more effective in their roles.  I was surprised at the depth of analysis that was conducted and was impressed by the Future Institute’s findings.  Both my managers and customer service team are involved in two separate training programs that have been aligned to the needs of my business.  Both teams were impressed that our business would invest in their future development and have been enjoying the programs immensely.  I’m looking forward to working with Future Institute as the programs roll out and would have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Manager and Supervisor Training

As a project manager I rely on quality training programs for my managers / supervisors that are built around real world experiences to ensure that the learning is relevant to the individual’s development and to help produce quality outcomes for the business.  I have been highly impressed by the way in which Future Institute aligns and delivers its leadership and management programs.

The quality of their content (both in their interactive eLearning and their face-to-face workshops) and the depth of experience of their trainers has made the decision to reinvest in their programs an easy one.  The feedback from our participants (who are mainly supervisors or middle managers) has been exceptionally positive.  The majority of who opted to also complete the second program.

If you are looking for a quality training programs to help enhance your team’s performance, I would strongly recommend Future Institute of Australia.

Manager and Supervisor Training (Program Conclusion)

As I exit my role as Project Director on the Ichthys Project, I would like to commend Future Institute for the support and mentoring provided to the Ventia OPS-1 team over the length of the project.

Since we engaged Future Institute to assist us in closing the gap with our junior leaders and less experienced site based staff, we have witnesses a remarkable turnaround in employee engagement and productivity. Indeed, now that the project is coming to an end, the large majority of the 14 or so who embarked on the training program that Future Institute custom designed for us, have either been promoted internally or have found more senior roles on other projects or with other like organizations.

The quality of the customised material along with the skills and expertise of the selected trainer, have in my view contributed to the success of the project and enhanced the market value of the individuals as leaders. It is testimony to putting in the time and effort to engage a quality RTO who can develop and customise an effective and engaging leadership program.

I would have no hesitation in engaging Future Institute for my next project and would recommend this program to organizations looking for quality and measurable training outcomes.

Training Needs Analysis Workshop

“We recently engaged Future Institute to facilitate a Training Needs Analysis workshop to assist us in determining our specific operational training needs as an organisation, with the long-term goal to develop and build our organisational culture.

Future Institute were exceptionally organized and always presented with a high level of professionalism, sound knowledge and expertise in the training arena.  Future Institute offered a holistic approach to determine the needs of the business and delivered a suite of tailored solutions for the specific challenges we face as a company.

We would highly recommend Future Institute to any organisation with the desire to improve performance and we will certainly be utilising them again in the future”

Norman Gomm

Regional Manager

Identifying the Training Needs

I was introduced to Future Institute by a colleague of mine.  Had it not been for that introduction, I would not have engaged because of previous encounters with training providers.

I was pleasantly surprised to receive a presentation from Future Institute that was all about my business and what needed to be done to improve our business, engagement with our staff, and matching the skills required of our staff to that of the business requirements.

The initial work prepared and engagement along the way has been second to none, and we are in the middle of rolling out our training program with the help of Future Institute.

Our decision to invest was an easy one.
