Community Sector and Development - Case for Change (closed)

The Community Sector and Development Industry Reference Committee (IRC) is responsible for ensuring that nationally recognised Qualifications deliver the skills and knowledge required to equip the sectors under its remit with a highly skilled workforce. SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Community Sector and Development IRC, has prepared a Case for Change to update 9 Qualifications, 6 Skill Sets, and 71 Units of Competency. 

The Training Package update will include:

  • A change in the packaging rules, including updates to the core and elective Units of the Qualifications.
  • An update of current Unit content and, if identified, the creation or inclusion of new Units of Competency based on identified skills and knowledge gaps.
  • Update of Unit content to address relevant recommendations of the Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence, the Northern Territory’s Royal Commission into the Protection and Detention of Children and the Australian Government’s Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, along with other relevant inquiries and reports.
  • Inclusion of content that reflects the principles of Trauma-Informed Care into appropriate Units of Competency, in line with industry best practice.

This Case for Change also proposes developing a new Qualification, Certificate III in Community Safety Patrol, and 15 new Units of Competency.
