A presentation at Blueline Laundry in Hobart in January recognised the significant achievements of staff who had completed accredited training courses.
Eight employees successfully completed accredited training in Australian Disability Enterprises Development, and 19 supported employees (people living with disability), completed their full TLI11215 Certificate I in Warehousing Operations.
Blueline General Manager Robert Fraser congratulated staff, and spoke about Blueline’s supportive culture and the importance of ‘creating an environment where you can achieve’.
“We have more of a vested interest to help people achieve, vested interest as in, that’s what we’re here for. We’re a social enterprise,” said Mr Fraser.
All staff training occurs onsite at Blueline’s premises, which allows for flexible learning on-the-job.
Ms Chriss Kelly, Training & Learning Development Manager from St Michaels Registered Training Organisation, presented the awards.
Ms Kelly spoke about the impressive training success rate at Blueline, with the organisation boasting 95 percent completion versus the state average of 64 percent.
“We are so proud that they have achieved this qualification,” said Blueline Laundry Service Coordinator, Mr Ron DiFelice.
Blueline employs 22 supported employees in Launceston, and 46 in Hobart, with a total staff base exceeding 200 in Tasmania.
