Creating pathways for our First Nations people and individual business is what we do best at Learning Sphere. Our approach is to be at the coalface, integrating into a workplace and using specialised teaching methods with a strong focus on learning through real circumstances and experiences.

Recently Learning Sphere provided tailored education and hands-on skills training for Sydney-based facilities management services. They offer a range of services covering everything from small residential buildings to large high rise and corporate office buildings, specialising in all aspects of window cleaning.

To recruit 60 vacancies across Sydney, a crucial element to deliver the training was partnering with Real Futures. They empower Mob to realise their employment aspirations and become workplace and community role models.

Emma Jory, Learning Sphere National Sales Manager, says the key to a successful outcome is quality partnerships and tapping into the business to devise an education program that works for the business.

“Working alongside the facilities service and Real Futures, we consulted with the client and designed an Entry into Cleaning program that focussed on the key skills within the role and building the confidence and capabilities of the aspirants.”

The outcome produced 15 aspirants who completed the program, with 8 receiving job offers with the facilities management service. A further three gained positions at Nanyabura Cleaning Services, and another two used their new skills to source other employment. All have taken the opportunity to continue their studies, completing a traineeship in Certificate III in Cleaning Operations.

We are proud to create career pathways and outcomes for our First Nations peoples and will continue to work with other businesses and Real Futures on rolling out more programs.
