Community Sector and Development Training Package Development: Draft 2 Validation
SkillsIQ, under the direction of Community Sector and Development Industry Reference Committee (IRC), and with input from the four Case Management, Child Protection, Community Development, and Youth Services Technical Advisory Committees (TACs), is undertaking a project to update Training Package Products.
SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Community Sector and Development Industry Reference Committee (IRC) and the Case Management, Child Protection, Community Development and Youth Services Technical Advisory Committees (TACs), has developed Draft 2 Training Package Products for stakeholder validation as part of the CHC Training Package review project.
The Training Package Products allocated to the Community Sector and Development IRC were last endorsed in 2015. The IRC identified the need to review 10 Qualifications, 6 Skill Sets and 65 Units of Competency, packaged within the CHC Training Package, during the preparation of its 2019 Industry Skills Forecast (ISF).
This ISF outlined the Case for Change and was submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) for approval to update the Products to meet current and future industry needs.
Responding to labour force data which indicated that employment levels for the above-mentioned sectors are experiencing national growth, the IRC, in its ISF submission to the AISC, proposed the review of the Community Services Training Package Products in the 2021 fiscal year.
This IRC is ultimately responsible for decisions regarding content within the 10 Qualifications, 6 Skill Sets and 65 Units of Competency.
