Rose Training talks using your skills to benefit you at the workplace
Most of us choose a career or occupation based on security, practicality, or economic demand. We are able to meld our passions and interests towards this career, finding ways to apply our natural strengths to it while aiming to improve our weaknesses.
It’s a wonderful thing when our passions and chosen careers doline up. This is usually a result of combined luck, circumstance, hard work and the right kind of networking. Like the saying goes, when you choose a job you love, you won’t have to work a day in your life.
This has been the outcome for many of the TAE alumni who have passed through the doors of Rose Training Australia. They have successfully been able to turn their passion for helping others within their chosen field of work, into a rewarding and challenging career as a trainer.
This has allowed them to channel their interest in their established career, like nursing or carpentry, as well as their abilities to be a mentor, leader and someone who cares about developing the skills of their colleagues around them. In this blog, we are going to take you through the ways in which you can use your personal strengths to forge a successful career in the training industry.
Stay true to your self-image
TAE and training is all about ethos. And not just any kind of ethos, genuine and authentic ethos that builds upon your own strengths and personality away from the training room. The best kind of trainers stay true to themselves, be it if they are introverts or extroverts, reflectors or pragmatists. You don’t need to change who you are to be a likeable individual, indeed, people are more attracted to leaders who embrace their strengths and weaknesses rather than trying to hide aspects of themselves they don’t like! Maintaining and staying true to your self-image in the training industry is key!
Keep yourself updated on your sector
Learning is lifelong, and your industry of expertise is not static; it changes with the times. To be a successful and effective trainer after you complete your TAE Cert IV, you need to keep up with changes in your sector, be it trends, technology, approaches to learning and working, stakeholders, and plans for your sector in the future. If you know more you can train more, and your students will come away with a better understanding of the way in which their industry of choice works. Don’t underestimate the power of daily reading on your sector – one of the ways trainers at Rose Training HQ like to keep themselves updated is by subscribing and reading industry-related newsletters! It means the information is delivered straight into our inbox and is only one click away.
Be a life-long learner – finishing your TAE is only the start of your educational journey
Yes, please celebrate and have fun, pat yourself on the back even, when you graduate from your TAE Cert IV! You deserve it! However, upon completing your course we want you to know that it’s not the end of your educational journey; it’s just the beginning. And that’s a wonderful thing. Learning is a privilege and keeping your mind open to education is the difference between a good trainer and a great one. Good trainers know their stuff and stick with it. Great trainers know they essentially aren’t trainers, but learners, and every time they train they are learning and understanding more about their industry and chosen field of work. A TAE Cert IV opens doors, and sets you off on the right foot when it comes to following your passion.
