Amy - ongoing learning at Fonterra

Ongoing learning at Fonterra


June 2019

Amy is the training coordinator at Fonterra Australia. 

After being involved with a project funded by a 26TEN Grant at a previous workplace, Amy recognised the practical support that 26TEN brings to the workplace.

When her new employer, Fonterra Australia, decided to move to an online learning system, she knew their workforce would benefit.  "I think as technologies advance the need for the workplace to grow with it is there," Amy said. "Certainly from a training perspective and our workplace documentation, we are using more advanced software and a lot of our training is through an online learning system so the need for our workplace to develop with technology is important."

With the implementation of the 26TEN project, Amy has already began to see results within the workplace.

"From the literacy of our workforce we've had a number that have gone through and been involved in one-on-one support and the skills that they have got through the participation has meant that they've now gone to be successful in the new roles that they've been promoted to." she said. 

"That benefits our workplace but also the individual in their job satisfaction."

Amy highly encourages any businesses interested in developing their workforce to get in contact with 26TEN. 

Fonterra Australia has received a second 26TEN Grant in the 2020 Grant Round.
