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.

I enjoyed the experience.

    USQ has used Work Skills' services for several years. We find the Work Skills online learning and assessment system (WOLAS) to be fantastic. It is one of the few systems I have seen that allows the supervisor to track and manage the progress of our trainees. 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.
