Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package Development

Under the direction of the Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Industry Reference Committee (IRC) and a range of expert Technical Advisory Committees (TACs), SkillsIQ is undertaking a number of projects that will result in updates to Training Package Products within the SIT Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package.

Events Qualifications - Case for Change

The Events industry has been growing exponentially over the past decade, and it is expected to continue to grow, with strong employment forecasted in the short-to-medium term. The industry has evolved significantly over the years and, as a result, so too have the skills needs of the workforce.

SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Industry Reference Committee (IRC) and the Events Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), has prepared a Case for Change outlining the proposed update of those Training Package Products specific to the Events industry in Australia. The existing Qualifications, Units of Competency and Skill Sets currently form part of the nationally recognised SIT Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package.

It has been more than six years since the Training Package Products for the Events industry were formally and comprehensively updated, and an update is therefore proposed to ensure they are current and relevant.

This project will look to address the key skills and knowledge gaps identified across the industry, and to ensure that training practices are up to date with what industry needs.

This Case for Change proposes an update of the following Training Package Products:

3 Qualifications

  • SIT30516 Certificate III in Events
  • SIT50316 Diploma of Event Management
  • SIT60216 Advanced Diploma of Event Management
