Technical Advisory Committee Expressions of Interest

From time to time, Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) supported by SkillsIQ will elect to form Technical Advisory Committees (TACs) to assist in gathering specialist technical information to inform a project. This may be a Case for Change or a Training Package Product development project.

TACs are made up of people from a specific industry sector with subject matter expertise that will assist with the project at hand. They report to the IRC under which they are formed and have no final decision making authority. This authority remains with the IRC.

TACs usually consist of 8 members. Members may be drawn from the IRC and the general industry. Membership of a TAC is voluntary and there is no remuneration, however meeting expenses are covered, subject to the IRC travel policy.

TACs exist only for the life of the project on which they are assigned to work. They are not ongoing or perpetual bodies. Their remit extends to the work outlined in the relevant activity order for the project to which they are assigned.

The role of TAC members is to:

  • Provide specialist industry subject matter knowledge regarding the project topic
  • Assist in identifying and engaging broader industry networks to participate in consultation and/or validation activities during the duration of the project
  • Offer advice and guidance to assist in informing the direction of the project throughout its duration. 

    SkillsIQ, on behalf of the following IRCs is currently seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from industry stakeholders to participate in TACs for the projects outlined below.
    Simply click on the link at the bottom of this page to complete the online EOI form. All fields must be completed for your EOI to be considered.

Please note that all expressions of interest must be approved by the relevant IRC. If you express interest and it is not possible to include you in the TAC, we would still encourage you to participate in the project by providing your views and feedback during public consultation periods.

Thank you for your interest in these projects.

Community Sector and Development IRC
Social Housing TAC

Project: Provide subject matter expertise to assist in the update of the CHC42215 Certificate IV in Social Housing

SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Community Sector and Development Industry Reference Committee (IRC), is seeking nominations for a Social Housing Technical Advisory Committee (TAC). The TAC will consist of members who represent the social housing and homelessness sector, training providers and associations.

The objective of this TAC will be to identify skills gaps in the social housing sector and to identify the importance of issues such as family violence, dealing with people from diverse backgrounds (including CALD and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people) and supporting homeless people. This information will then be used to guide the update the CHC42215 Certificate IV in Social Housing qualification.

The TAC will identify the challenges and opportunities that the sector is currently experiencing which are impacting on workforce skill requirements, including:

  • Government initiatives to combat housing affordability and homelessness, and
  • Critical cultural competency skills required.

This project will ensure that the social housing sector is supported by a high quality trained and skilled workforce. The contribution of the TAC will ensure that the outcomes of this project enable access to training that will support the sector to improve efficiencies in operations, but also maximise the sector’s interaction with people from diverse backgrounds to ensure that they receive the most appropriate service possible. 

Expressions of Interest for this TAC close at 5.00pm on Friday 28 September 2018.
