LGA04 Local Government Training Package Development

SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Local Government Industry Reference Committee is undertaking a detailed update of the Training Package Products in the LGA04 Local Government Training Package.

This is a significant project and an opportunity to shape the way skills are formally recognised in local government entities and aligned to meet the needs of the sector.

Webinars and broader consultation workshops will be scheduled in the future to ensure that all stakeholders have the opportunity to provide feedback on Draft 1 Training Package products. An initial set of consultation workshops were conducted in 2018 for local government staff to:

  • identify the key skills/core functions for a range of job roles and skills
  • outline the Local Government Training Package work and a proposed framework for the new Training Package
  • consider how qualifications can be structured to meet the needs of the sector.

Work is currently being conducted on preparing Draft 1 training package material for release on the SkillsIQ Feedback Forum for public consultation. This will be supported by webinars and other structured consultation activity.
