NY07014 - Managing Nursery Industry National Training programs

The Nursery Industry Training & Recognition Manager (NTRM) plays a vital role in the up-skilling of industry with the aim of achieving a more highly skilled industry workforce brought about by the delivery of training that is focused on industry needs. Apart from managing relevant projects on behalf of industry, the NTRM ensures that the industry is well represented on the committees, forums and skills councils that play a vital role in delivering training to industry. The aim of the role is also to build strong relationships with training providers and government departments which are involved in the delivery of vocational training. As input into the national training agenda and maintenance of these relationships is so vital to industry, it is important that the industry owns these relationships rather than outsources them. Liaison with the NGI state associations is also an essential part of the role. The NTRM oversees the progression of training initiatives, careers program, as well as the industry's recognition program Certified Nursery Professional. The interrelationship between training and recognition is a key element in the role of the manager.
