Recently, Kineo was thrilled to be asked to support Momentum Consulting, an established Registered Training Organisation that helps organisations provide career development with nationally recognised qualifications.

Momentum Consulting wanted to engage with small businesses to ensure they understood the gravity of the upcoming COVID-19 related changes through the provision of a Workplace Infection Prevention and Control course.

Breaking down complexity with clear messaging

As a result of COVID-19, many workers require skills to decrease transmission of infection when undertaking their daily duties. While the fundamental principles of infection control may be consistent, these skills will likely require some contextualisation in different industries.

During 2020, the Australian Government partnered with all state and territory governments to establish an $80 million Infection Control Training Fund.  This was to fast‑track free or heavily subsidised infection control training in support of the re-opening of customer‑facing businesses nationwide. The funding would provide at least 80,000 places to support this critical infection control training in customer-facing businesses including retail, tourism, hospitality, cleaning, security, transport and logistics, aged and disability care.

Quick turnaround solution 

Working closely with Kineo, a Workplace Infection Prevention and Control course was created.  This was developed and delivered to a fast turnaround, supported by a collaborative go-to-market-strategy with Business Australia to get the messaging out to an extensive audience. 

Upon successful completion of the Workplace Infection Prevention and Control course, learners will be able to; 

  • Follow precautions for infection prevention and control
  • Identify infection hazards and assess the risk, and
  • Follow procedures for managing risks associated with infection transmission.

The course was delivered in record time; in less than 4 weeks!  It has already been rolled out through Momentum Consulting with 1,000 learners forecasted to complete the course and activity assessments before the end of the year. 

If you have a specific organisational learning need and aren’t sure how to tackle it, our problem-solving team may be able to offer a fresh perspective. Get in touch.
