Consultation for Draft 1 commenced on Thursday, 26 November 2020 and closed at 5:00pm on Thursday, 24 December 2020.
Draft 1 of the Training Package Products was available for comment on the SkillsIQ Online Feedback Forum. A Consultation Guide summarising the proposed changes was included and can be downloaded from the bottom of this page. To access the Feedback Forum, please click here.
The SkillsIQ Feedback Forum provides all stakeholders with the opportunity to provide detailed input on any aspect of proposed Training Package components (Qualifications, Units of Competency and Skill Sets) during designated consultation periods. Whether you are an employer; peak body or industry association; government body or regulator; employee association; training provider; or student, we want to hear your views on proposed changes to the Training Package that will provide skills and knowledge applicable to the Massage Therapy sector.
You will be able to view the comments that other stakeholders have left and in turn post your own comment or reply to another comment already posted.
SkillsIQ has undertaken several activities at which industry stakeholders and VET professionals were able to provide feedback. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, public consultation on Draft 1 took place via webinars, emails and the SkillsIQ Online Feedback Forum.

The newly proposed Advanced Diploma of Remedial Massage does not form part of this consultation. It is currently under development and will be consulted on at a later stage. A survey requesting feedback on what should be included in the Qualification is currently underway. The survey can be found here.
Following the close of the consultation period, feedback received will be collated and provided to the IRC to inform the development of Draft 2, which will be made publicly available for validation prior to submission for endorsement.
