Why should I study Workplace Skills?
This course prepare students with the skills and knowledge to build a career in an office environment and a variety of entry-level business services job roles. Certificate II in Workplace Skills is conducted in a Simulated Business environment, run by students with help from the teacher. The certificate is nationally-accredited vocational training. Our students get to experience the operations of a ‘real-world’ business enterprise called ‘Unique Simulated Business’, where our core function is selling corporate wear and embroidery.
By participating in our simulated business, students get to perform the full range of business transactions associated with the buying and selling of products and services. The products and services are traded as per a real business, although no actual transfer of money or goods takes place. Students issue invoices, keep financial records, transfer monies, process electronic mail and develop skills in decision-making, group dynamics and working with others. Further skills are acquired in dedicated training sessions in Advanced Word Processing, Outlook, PowerPoint, MYOB and Excel.

What do other students think about Certificate II in Workplace Skills?
I wish to express my thanks for your great teaching and assistance in this certificate. Last week I was offered the opportunity to join the casual Administration Pool and being paid for a few relevant hours. I am currently volunteering in Reception and using many of the skills that we were taught last year. Certificate II in Workplace Skills certainly gave me the practical training and confidence to learn this busy job. I also enjoyed the Simulated Business experience as it helped everything feel real. Thank you once again.Leonie, student
