Hi everyone
Can anyone expand on this requirement
I'm trying to help the company that is sponsoring me and one of the requirements is this training item. Can any help me understand this item better and based on your experience what is DIAC actually looking for here.

have a current training strategy for existing Australian employees, or if a newly established business, have a training plan for future training of Australian employees

Thanks everyone !!!!!

What they're looking for is evidence that the company that will be sponsoring you is already employing Australians and has a training plan in place to help improve their skills. i.e. they're not letting Aussie workers rot on the vine and bring the skill in from overseas.

Fair enough so what examples of proof they require. They do have Australians employed

They'll want evidence of money spent over X yrs on X training for X no of current australian emploees and proof that it is ongoing and will continue. Any large company will have this evidence.

I haven't seen any forms that need to be filled out for this item. Has anyone had to go through this ? How specific are they ? This company has been around 12 years and is a 5 person company.

You don't fill in the forms, if there are any it would be the company or their agent that did them. It is possible it is part of the nomination forms or just part of DIAC assessment.

I am helping the company through the process and right now there is no agent involved I am just trying to tap into the groups experience on this topic.

Ahh ok, will be hard for you to do their nomination part without nagging them daily for info. Do they have a HR dept or not big enough?

No they don't have an HR department, that is why I am helping them get ready.
Does the size of the company have any impact on the process ?

Thanks for the help Shel_
