Wine Operations Project
Case for change
The Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC) issued an activity order for this project to commence, after “wine production, cellar door sales and cellar operations” was identified as a priority skill area in the 2017 Food, Beverage and Pharmaceutical IRC Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work (see page 45). Skills Impact and the Food, Beverage and Pharmaceutical Industry Reference Committee (IRC) will take this project through a process that adheres to the 2012 Standards for Training Package Development.
This project will review and update wine industry units of competency and qualifications to reflect changing industry skills requirements, especially in the area of technology.
Scroll down to view the list of units and qualifications that will be reviewed in this project, and the various skilled activities they cover.
The following factors will be considered in the review of these qualifications and units:
- Changes to the industry that have occurred over the last ten years
- Changes in roles, technology and anticipated changes for the next five years
- Pathways within the wine and allied supporting industries
- Other skills required beyond the wine-specific elements to support the wine industry
- An ageing workforce
- The need to provide new job entrants with suitable pathways into a wine industry career
- The need for a higher level qualification to support pathways and career progression
- The need for clear articulation of the professional standards of performance.
