Draft 2 qualifications, skill sets and Units of Competency look significantly different to the current versions. The proposed qualifications include:
- LGA30120 Certificate III in Local Government
- LGA40120 Certificate IV in Local Government
- LGA50120 Diploma of Local Government
- LGA50220 Diploma of Local Government – Elected Member.
Between 2016 and 2020 considerable scoping and industry engagement activity was undertaken to define the extent and nature of the development required to proactively respond to skills development needs in the Australian local government industry. Since the development of Draft 1, six subject matter specialist groups have provided significant support to inform Draft 2. These groups focused on the following specialisations:
- Corporate Services
- Elected Members
- Environmental Health and Regulatory Services
- Property and Asset Management.
Consultation Activities and Timelines
If you work in local government, provide training in local government or manage people in local government, we would appreciate your views, thoughts and suggestions on this final draft of the qualifications.
