The Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) that Skills Impact supports are currently working on the following projects to improve current unis of competency, skill sets and qualifications.

Projects are established only when a Case For Change has been approved by the Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC), as outlined in the National Schedule. Following this approval, Skills Impact and the relevant IRC take the project through a process that adheres to the 2012 Standards for Training Package Development.

Under each project there is the opportunity to register your interest to receive updates.
