Have your say on the content of industry qualifications

Ever wondered who determines the content of nationally accredited qualifications?

The short answer is participants from industry can, which means, this could be you.

Industry participants work with Skills Impact so that we are able to write documents that describe how work is done. These skill standards documents then go into national qualifications, units of competency and skills sets.

So if you want to be involved in this, we would love to have your help. All you need is knowledge about how work needs to be done in specific parts of the industry, and be willing to contact us and give us your views.

TAFEs and other registered training organisations (RTOs) design their training programmes based off the skills standards industry defines.

Your feedback matters!

Sign up to the Skills Impact newsletter (click here) and visit their website to see a list of Current Projects that are underway to improve various qualifications, units of competency and skills sets. Feel free to register your interest in any of these projects and provide feedback on any draft qualifications and units of competency. Industry feedback is fundamental to ensuring national qualifications, units of competency and skills sets reflect the needs of industry. Below is a list of current projects and the link to the webpage where you can register your interest or provide feedback.

How does the process work?

The process to develop qualifications, units of competency and skills sets is led by Industry Reference Committees (IRCs). They are the group of people responsible for working with industry to keep qualifications, units of competency and skills sets up to date. IRCs have been appointed by the government and receive support from Skills Impact.

As well as asking for feedback on current projects, IRCs also ask for feedback to determine future project work. Right now they are calling for feedback on any gaps with current qualifications, units of competency and skills sets. This feedback is collated into a document called IRC Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work – which is submitted to the government for approval. Click on your industry sector below to provide feedback on the draft IRC Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work and to help shape future project work.
