Cellar Operations

Competenz can provide training plans, support and qualifications – tailored to your businesses specific needs.

How we work with you

Our training advisors work with you to understand your business and the skills you need. Then they agree a tailored training plan with you to help your employees gain those skills. Most of this learning takes place on-the-job.

We provide training materials and eLearning and visit your workplace to check on progress.

We arrange assessments, through in-house assessors or contract assessors, to confirm your employees have built their skills, and register their success with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority.

How we support your industry

Over the last two years Competenz has significantly increased its engagement with the wine industry, including establishing a Strategic Advisory Group made up of key industry stakeholders.

This group has been partnering with Competenz over this time to ensure the first Cellar Operations qualifications for New Zealand are fit for purpose. With the launch of our new qualifications in early 2016, the Strategic Advisory Group’s focus now moves to the identification of new trends and advancements in the industry, providing strategic advice and ensuring our qualifications remain relevant and current.

From 2016, we will be looking to actively participate in and support industry events like conferences and competitions, and regularly celebrate your learners’ success.

Enterprise wide – designing learning pathways

Competenz works alongside industry, taking an 'enterprise-wide' approach to understand how we can support the commercial training needs beyond the technical training footprint.

We start by understanding your business and partner with you to design 'enterprise-wide' learning pathways.

Our learning programmes cater for all aspects in business including Occupational Health and Safety, Sales, Distribution, Quality, Competitive Systems and Practices (competitive manufacturing), Business Management and Administration.

Our training plans are tailored to your company’s needs, focusing on the broader business goals, workforce development planning, and increasingly supporting on-the-job career development for every level.
