SIR30216 Certificate III in Retail – Take 2!

A second group of students recently completed the SIR30216 Certificate III in Retail at HITsa Salisbury. Read what the students had to say about their experience whilst training @HITsa:

I really enjoyed Cert III in retail, trust me it’s really fun and enjoyable to engage with different people that you don’t know, out in the real world you work with different cultures, different people, so HITsa helped me a lot throughout the retail course.’

Siovhan H

I liked the coffee part and how I got experience and finally passed with flying colours.’

‘I just finished a Cert III in retail. It was a really fun course, it pulled me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to make new friends. I enjoyed how the course was scheduled and how friendly the trainers and staff are.’

Careers and Employment Expo @ Adelaide Showgrounds

Held annually in May, the Adelaide Showgrounds once again buzzed with excitement as it hosted this free event. As part of a series run across Australia it attracted a diverse crowd of students, parents, graduates, job seekers, and career changers all eager to gather information and advice on their future career paths.

Participating in expos and career days is crucial for HITsa – these events help us stay abreast of industry trends, ensuring that the training we provide remains relevant and up-to-date. Engaging with employers who are the true experts in their fields allows us to develop the most effective training resources for our students. These interactions also enable us to explore various industry pathways, assisting us in recommending the best training courses for prospective students.

The expo provided a fantastic opportunity to connect with a variety of employers and service providers. It was an ideal platform for introducing HITsa Training and Employment to a wider audience and networking with industry peers. The representation across fields such as aged care, disability services, childcare, hospitality and retail was exceptional.

Involvement in community expos offer invaluable opportunities to meet potential students face-to-face. Direct interaction at these events is the best way to connect with and support future students, helping them navigate their educational and career journeys.

HITsa is delighted to have hosted students from Paralowie High School at our Salisbury site over the past two months whilst they complete an “Introduction to Retail” course.

Workskil has also had a group of job seekers completing SIR30216 Certificate III in Retail. Students got to test what they had learnt by setting up a mock fine dining table. They have more practical assessments to follow where they will demonstrate coffee making skills, café service, simulated dining service and financial skills.

We look forward to helping them achieve their outcomes and graduate at the end of their training.

The holiday shopping season is nearly upon us! This means there are retail jobs out there to be snatched up.

The annual peak retail season is November to January and it is NOW employers are volume hiring to meet staffing demands. Thousands of workers are recruited between August and October.

This isn’t all ‘short term’ employment – up to 70% of retail employees gain ongoing work after the shopping season.
