Quite quiet

With the closure of Toyota, Australia no longer has a car manufacturing industry. This article from the business section of today's Herald Sun noted positively that at least some former automotive workers have transferable skills that can be used in other industries. On the other hand, some graduates needs to improve their skills. An industry figure is quoted as saying, "we regularly find that graduates are not quiet as well trained in these areas as is needed."

While employers often report that graduates lack verbal communication and people skills required in the modern workplace, and may be quiet people, this is clearly a typo by a subeditor. The graduates are not quite as well trained as they need to be.
