BSCAA is a strong advocate for training which professionalises the workforce and creates career pathways for those employed in this sector.
The Construction & Property Services Industry Skills Council has for many years allocated Commonwealth funds for various sectors of the Property Services Industry to provide industry training as did State Governments at varying levels.
Supported by the BSCAA, Lennox Institute has been a prominent player providing training for the cleaning industry from basic Certificate II level through to Diploma of Management underpinned by traineeships which provided financial assistance to companies to allow their employees to attend training workshops over an extended period.
Under the current Liberal Government, funding for training has been significantly reduced and the BSCAA and Registered Training Organisations have had to re-think the way training is presented in order to keep the momentum developed over the last decade on a forward path.
Online training offered at cost effective levels has been the solution adopted by the BSCAA (in conjunction with Daniels Associates) and Lennox Institute to continue to provide the cleaning industry with training, a solution endorsed by the BSCAA and the industry.
