Training & Development Policy


 The purpose of the Professional Development Policy is to encourage and support employees in their professional development as an integral part of their employment with Gosnells Bowling Club (GBC). GBC acknowledges that development is a key component of personal job satisfaction and contributes to enhanced skills, expertise and workplace productivity. Employee reward and recognition are critical to the achievement of the organisation’s objectives and to the continuous improvement in the quality of GBC products and services.

GBC is committed to providing a rewarding environment for its employees and recognises that the quality, responsiveness and professionalism of its workforce are inextricably linked to the organisation’s achievement of its strategic goals.

To satisfy its commitment to development GBC will:

  • Support employee membership in relevant associations via reimbursement of licence fees for one relevant institution per employee per year;
  • Support employee continuing development of structured and relevant in-house training and by assisting with the costs associated with attendance at external training including relevant short courses, workshops, seminars, conferences and technical meetings;
  • Support employees who undertake management approved further education relevant to their position and consistent with GBC objectives. Assistance may include reimbursement of a negotiated proportion of tuition fees for successfully completed units of study and the provision of study/exam leave.
