Competence & Governance
Energy Skills Queensland is committed to supporting industry to improve their competency assurance and governance practices.
The importance of this is underpinned by strong health, safety and environment practices that improve both workplace relations and productivity on any worksite. A primary function of Energy Skills Queensland is to assist industry to meet skills needs and mitigate workforce risk by consulting with key stakeholders to develop and implement industry policy and workforce development strategies to help attract, retain and develop skills.
We also have the capacity to advocate on behalf of industry to ensure that industry’s interests are well represented in the development and implementation of government policy.
Our strong industry reputation and understanding of skills needs has made the organisation an influential advocate to government and regulatory bodies on workforce trends.
Energy Skills Queensland offers a number of products and services to support competency assurance and governance activities such as SkillPASS, GI and skills audit capabilities.
Energy Skills Queensland is able to assist in a range of skills audit activities such as the compilation of capability frameworks and functional analyses. If you are an organisation who would like to understand your training and competency assurance gaps, internal and external compliance, systems of reporting control and compliance reporting, Energy Skills Queensland is able to tailor a solution to help.
The key to effective workforce planning is better decision making in how the workforce is identified, targeted and managed. Ultimately, workforce choices made now will impact on future productivity and financial performance.
Energy Skills Queensland engages with key industry stakeholders to build industry intelligence for the delivery of workforce planning initiatives. Through workforce planning, research and analysis, Energy Skills Queensland examines the current and future workforce to identify skills needs and workforce risks. It further analyses employee data to create a workforce profile of specific industry sectors enabling individual company bench marking against profiles. Through formal industry skilling reports and strategies, Energy Skills Queensland communicates industry intelligence, outlining skilling needs and future workforce risks.
Industry intelligence is also provided by the Energy Skills Queensland team on an industry-wide or enterprise basis, ensuring skills demand and supply are consistently monitored. We provide integrated intelligence and advice to all levels of government in workforce planning and development. Energy Skills Queensland works in partnership with all levels of government to advise, support and address workforce skilling and productivity needs through:
- access to funded skilling
- identifying training priorities
- advising governments on key skills and productivity issues
- undertaking workforce development and planning.
Energy Skills Queensland also actively supports the development, implementation and continuous improvement of industry competency standards and Training Packages and engages with State and Territory Governments, State and Territory industry advisory bodies and peak representative bodies in areas of industry coverage. The data Energy Skills Queensland provides to Government allow for an evidence base to support future initiatives and changes.
Energy Skills Queensland is able to conduct tailored research projects of all magnitudes. If there are specific energy-related areas of research you are interested in, please feel free to have a confidential discussion with one of our research professionals.
ESQ is able to compile a full capability framework for organisations through functional analyses and skills audits. Through these activities, ESQ has enabled organisations to identify training and development needs of their workforce and comply with licensing and regulatory compliance.
Individual competency profiles often “get lost” amidst large volumes of human resource data – especially in large organisations, yet the impact of non-compliance remain significant from a productivity, safety and liability perspective. ESQ can help your organisation uncover any non-compliance and skills needs and thereby improve productivity and mitigating risk.
ESQ has several highly qualified professionals that are experienced in skills audit processes and our tools and processes have been proven to identify skills and competency requirements. Future management of the organisational competency requirements is also made easy with our SkillPass platform.
