Industry Leading Trainers

Industry Leading Trainers Large

Upskilled strives for excellence in all levels of our service, but where we excel is with our trainers and facilitators.  Upskilled takes great pride in bringing the very best trainers and facilitators to our course sessions and business development programs.

All Upskilled trainers and facilitators have extensive experience working in and with commercial organisations. As well as recent and relevant business experience, our trainers and facilitators are highly qualified and credentialed. Many trainers hold an MBA or similar qualification; all have, as a minimum, the essential qualification for training and assessment (TAE40110).

Upskilled is committed to gathering participant feedback for the support of trainers and facilitators. In turn, the knowledge that Upskilled trainers deliver is highly valued by course participants and business clients alike. Facilitator expertise extends well beyond structured sessions, and informs every aspect of the superior learning experience that Upskilled specialises in.
