Case for change

This project is formed as part of two skills priorities that were identified in the 2018-2021 Agriculture, Horticulture, Conservation and Land Management IRC Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work (see pages 95 and 97).

  • Protected horticulture
  • Irrigation technology, design and processes

In addressing these skills needs, this project will identify and fill gaps in current qualifications and units of competency from the AHC Agriculture, Horticulture, Conservation and Land Management Training Package to address skills needs for protected horticulture and irrigation technologies.

Skills Impact and the Agriculture and Production Horticulture Industry Reference Committee (IRC) will take this project through a process that adheres to the 2012 Standards for Training Package Development.

Project Plan

Project Scope

This project will review and develop qualifications and units of competency to address the skills and knowledge requirements for protected horticulture activities and irrigation technologies.

Protected Horticulture
Protected horticulture refers to the management of closed cropping systems, and covers areas such as: nutrient film techniques, flooding and draining, aeroponics, growth media, setup and maintenance of protected cropping irrigation systems, setup of trellis systems, operation of automated controls and climate control technologies. The Australian protected cropping industry is growing fast and changing with technology, as a result more skilled labour is required to fill skills gaps and meet the demand from retailers. This project will look at the skills and knowledge requirements of this sector to update and develop relevant qualifications and units.

Irrigation technologies
Ongoing implementation of new processes and technologies in irrigation has facilitated the need for flexibility in irrigation specialities. An example of new technology is mobile apps designed to help guide irrigation decisions. IRC feedback has identified existing units need to be reviewed and updated to ensure different types of irrigation (broadacre, gravity fed, pressurised, domestic/urban irrigation) are covered in the range of units and can be delivered separately based on specific job roles.

Scroll down to view the qualifications, skill sets and units that will be reviewed in this project. They will be incorporated in the AHC Agriculture, Horticulture and Conservation and Land Management Training Package.

Qualifications, skill sets and units

Below is a list of current qualifications and units proposed for revision and development as part of this project.

In preparation for the review of these components, we invite you to provide your input on the current qualifications and units. We would like to know what changes or updates should be made to the components so that they meet the skills needs of the industry. Use the links below to view the current components on training.gov.au.

Your feedback will help us in drafting the revised qualifications and units.

To provide feedback, please use our feedback form. Alternatively, you can email William Henderson william@skillsimpact.com.au.

Units of competency that may be reviewed as part of this project include (but are not limited to):

 

Subject Matter Experts

Subject Matter Experts will be drawn on throughout this project to help review and draft the revised units, skill sets and qualifications.

If you are interested in applying to be a subject matter expert and are able to volunteer your time to this project, please email details of your expertise to william@skillsimpact.com.au.

 

Stakeholder Consultation Process

A list of key stakeholder organisations is being developed for this project. Skills Impact will ensure contact is made with each of these organisations during the development of this project to seek their involvement and their views on the draft qualifications, skill sets and units.

If you are aware of an organisation that you think should be involved, please contact the project team to ensure they are contacted by us.

Of course, all and any interested industry participants are encouraged to engage in the consultation of this project, when the draft qualifications, skill sets and units are available for feedback via this webpage and workshops that take place around Australia. Consultation is not limited to the organisations on this list. This list simply helps us to identify those organisations that, because of their industry role, size or specialty, are likely to have a key interest in the development and outcomes of this project.

 

Opportunities for stakeholder input

Stakeholder input is appreciated throughout the duration of this project. The documents will be drafted in consultation with Subject Matter Experts and their networks. Opportunities to provide targeted feedback will occur when the draft materials are made available, which is expected to be January 2019 – February 2019, and again for validation of final drafts in March 2019. However, your feedback is welcomed at any time, and will help us in drafting the qualifications, skill sets and units. It is important that training provides a skilled and flexible workforce for the future. The qualifications, skill sets and units need to reflect real work experience. So if you work in the sector, Skills Impact would appreciate your input and help. Please feel free to register your interest for project updates and consultation opportunities by following the newsletter subscription link below. Alternatively, please feel free to contact the project manager, William on 03 9321 3526 or william@skillsimpact.com.au.

 

The Agriculture and Production Horticulture Industry Reference Committee (IRC) will oversee this project, as part of their responsibility to support engagement with the sector, and to ensure the project meets industry stakeholder needs.

Development

Work commenced in September 2018 to review and potentially develop new units and/ or qualifications for Protected Horticulture and Irrigation in the AHC Agriculture, Horticulture and Conservation and Land Management Training Package.

Protected Horticulture Three new qualifications have been proposed, the Certificates II, III and IV in Protected Horticulture, as well as six potential new units. This work has been assisted by input from a broad range of stakeholders and representatives of the viticulture industry who have been brought together as a Subject Matter Expert Working Group.

Irrigation – A review is being undertaken for the Certificates II, III, IV and Diploma of Irrigation, as well as the potential creation of four new skill sets. This work has been assisted by input from a broad range of stakeholders and representatives of the viticulture industry who have been brought together as a Subject Matter Expert Working Group.

Consultation Workshops – Registrations Open!

Thank you to those stakeholders who have provided feedback and advice so far. The revised draft qualifications and units will be made available on this webpage for public consideration and feedback from January 2019, under the ‘Drafts Available’ menu above. Face-to-face consultation workshops will also take place, across states and territories, with a webinar planned for those unable to attend in person. Registrations for these workshops are now open. Please feel free to register for a workshop near you by clicking the corresponding link.

Drafts Available

The draft documents for this project are now available for stakeholder feedback, including qualifications, skill sets and units of competency in both Protected Horticulture and Irrigation.

Feedback is sought on whether the draft qualifications, skill sets and units reflect the current skills standards and practices of industry, and whether job functions are accurately described.

Protected Horticulture – Three new qualifications and six new units have been drafted to address knowledge and skills gaps that currently exist within in the training package. One unit has been reviewed, with the aim of broadening its scope to make it relevant to Protected Horticulture and Production Horticulture.

Irrigation – Four qualifications, 45 units and four skill sets have been reviewed to address skills and knowledge related to irrigation and drainage. These qualifications, units and skill sets have been drafted to clarify job tasks and assessment requirements (including the volume and frequency of performance for assessment).

The drafts will be available on this webpage for feedback until 15 February 2019.

Feedback will inform the work on the final drafts which will be available for industry validation in March 2019.
