"The underlying currency of any successful partnership is respect. The CIT Yurauna Centre has provided understanding and flexibility in the provision of on-site staff development training, such as towards the Certificate IV in Alcohol and Other Drugs. It is also an important referral point for our clients who want to expand their opportunities through education. Overall, the partnership has assisted in building support for the development of better outcomes for the ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community."

Charles Sturt University - School of Policing

"CIT provided us with an external review and consultation for delivering the Bachelor of Policing electronically. CIT reviewed the course content and delivery, and was able to give us just the type of new perspective on the course that we were looking for. CIT suggested reasonable and achievable improvements to the course and provided a formal report and presentation that will help us improve the Bachelor of Policing program and help with future internal audits of the program."

ACT Government - Shared Services

“In 2009 Human Resource Services provided approximately 180 staff the opportunity to have their skills and experiences recognised through the CIT Skills Recognition program with the aim of achieving either a Certificate IV or Diploma in HR Management.

14 Shared Services staff were required to undertake the new unit of study in Workforce Planning before achieving full qualification. CIT facilitated the delivery of this unit in-house and customised the training to include the development and delivery of a work based project.

Shared Services considers the Skills Recognition program to offer a significant contribution to the success of Shared Services in meeting its Vision of attracting and retaining talented and highly motivated people and being regarded as an industry leader.”

The Hellenic Club of Canberra

"The Hellenic Club has formed an ongoing partnership with CIT to give all our employees an opportunity to complete a Certificate I and II in Hospitality Operations. The program was designed to ensure a consistent base level of training with particular emphasis on areas of compliance and the delivery of excellence in customer service.

This year we have further customised the training program to adapt to the time demands of our employees. Most Certificate II units are approached in a self paced learning style and can be completed in a time frame that is adaptable to the employee’s lifestyle.

Twice a week CIT provides an instructor/assessor who is available onsite in a dedicated classroom, to provide on-the-spot support. Assessments are conducted ‘on-the-job’ providing a realistic scenario for both the employee and the assessor to base their results."
