The following summaries from agreements deal with various issues related to training and study in the workplace.

Training: The K & S Freighters/K & S Express/KSID Queensland Agreement 1997 [Print P5692] contains a number of what are termed training guarantees. According to the agreement, focus groups are to be convened to determine competencies. The company will then sponsor a training programme to address these competencies and will provide staff with formal accreditation. As part of this process, the company will run "career development centres" which will promote training and assess training needs. An annual performance review will also contribute to this process which encompasses peer and supervisor review.

The Lone Star Steakhouse and Saloon Hospitality Industry Traineeship Agreement [Print P6247] was established to provide particular employees (ie, those who do not already possess appropriate accreditation) access to traineeships and to set the relevant wages for those positions. The agreement only applies to trainees and is to operate in conjunction with the existing award. As well as establishing wage rates for trainees, the agreement also establishes the conditions for the traineeship, the elements of training to be provided and the duration of the traineeship.

Study: The ARRB Employment Agreement 1997 [Print P5524] addresses the issues of employee study. It sets the outcomes the company seeks to achieve from employee’s study and separates study undertaken at the company’s request from that initiated by the employee.

The above summaries were taken from the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s ‘Federal Enterprise Agreement Report - Fourth Quarter 1997’.
