Seafood Post Harvest Project

Case for change

This project will review qualifications, skill sets and units of competency from the SFI11 Seafood Industry Training Package to reflect changing industry skills requirements. A focus of the project will be to determine trends and address training development needs within the aquaculture and wild catch post harvest sector, so that qualifications are relevant to the industry.

This project is carried out at the same time as the Aquaculture, Fishing Operations & Biosecurity Project.

The Industry Skills Committee (AISC) approved a Case for Change and issued an Activity Order for this project. The Case for Change can be downloaded via the link below. Skills Impact and the Aquaculture and Wild Catch Industry Reference Committee (IRC) will manage this project, consistent with the 2012 Standards for Training Package Development.

 

Project Plan

Project Scope

This project will review 8 qualifications, 1 skill set and approximately 49 units of competency within the SFI Seafood Industry Training Package, so that all job functions are accurately described, with appropriate current knowledge and skill needs. A focus of this project will be to incorporate skills to address changes in distribution, processing, storage, fishing and environmental management.

Scroll down to view the qualifications, skill set and units that will be reviewed in this project, and the various job roles and skilled activities they cover.

Changes in technology, legislative and regulatory and market demands have seen a number of changes in how seafood is processed and sold. Organisations with dual operations (processors and retails/wholesalers) have been leading the discussions to rationalise qualifications, ensuring flexibility.

As part of the review process, documents will be updated to meet 2012 Standards for Training Packages and to address the Council of Australian Governments’ reforms. Qualifications and units with low enrolments now need to be checked if they are meeting industry needs. These items will initially appear under the heading of low use units/qualifications that may be subject to deletion. If there is a need for these units, please provide comment explaining why and also any views you may have as to why there are so few enrolments (see below). Where gaps are identified, additional units may be developed.

This project is being carried out at the same time as the Aquaculture, Fishing Operations & Biosecurity Project.

Stakeholder Consultation Process

On behalf of the IRC we have identified a list of key stakeholder organisations in 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 set 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.

Drafts Available

Thank you to all those who provided feedback on the revised qualifications, skill sets and units of competency. The drafts were made available on the Skills Impact website for broad stakeholder review from 20 July – 19 August 2018.

Feedback was sought on whether the draft documents reflect current industry skills standards, knowledge and practices and whether all job functions are accurately described. Feedback will inform the work on the final drafts which will be available for industry validation in September 2018.

They have been reviewed and updated to incorporate skills to address changes in distribution, processing, storage, fishing and environmental management.

Summary of consultation

Feedback on the draft documents was collected via the online feedback hub, face-to-face consultation workshops and webinars. To view the draft documents, including comments that were made on them from people using the feedback hub, please click on the expandable document menus below.

The draft qualifications, skill sets and units have been drafted in consultation with Subject Matter Experts. They have considered feedback that was received out of Workforce Functional Analysis workshops in March and April. People working directly in the Seafood Industry participated and provided information on the skills and knowledge required for job roles and tasks. Site visits were undertaken to observe these job roles in workplaces. Thank you to those who provided feedback during these activities.

 

Qualifications

The total number of units for each qualification has been reduced by removing the same core units (or ‘nesting’ of units) that appeared across all qualifications.

The number of imported units from other training packages has increased to allow greater flexibility in qualifications, to enable application in different contexts and to meet the diversity of individuals and organisational needs.

The Diploma of Seafood Processing is proposed for deletion due to the lack of job outcomes at this level. There has also been a lack of enrolments in the last three years or more.

Content from the SFI20611 Certificate II in Seafood Industry (Sales and Distribution) is proposed to be covered under the following revised qualifications:

  • SFI20518 Certificate II in Seafood processing
  • SFI30518 Certificate III in Seafood processing
SFI20518 Certificate II in Seafood processing View qualification
SFI30518 Certificate III in Seafood processing View qualification
SFI40518 Certificate IV in Seafood Processing View qualification

Summary of consultation to date 

Thank you to those stakeholders that provided feedback on the drafts that were made available between  20 July – 19 August 2018, under the ‘Drafts Available’ menu above. A description of how this feedback has been consideration and applied in these final drafts can be downloaded below. Please click the ‘Download Summary of Feedback, Responses and Actions’ button. 

The draft units have been developed in consultation with Subject Matter Experts, made up of workplace experts and industry, with input from their networks also. Due to cross over of many of the skills being reviewed, consultation activities for this project have taken place concurrently with the Aquaculture, Fishing Operations & Biosecurity Project. You can view the original, current units that are being redeveloped as part of this project under the ‘Project Plan’ menu. 

 

Units of competency

Note: Six new post harvest units have been developed and are available below for comment and validation. Additional comments and feedback is also welcome on several units that were proposed for deletion, due to low or no enrolments over the past three years, but stakeholder feedback indicated some support to keep them.

Some units have had a code and title change to reflect current industry terminology. Further code changes may occur once validation stage has been completed to improve flow of unit codes and to remove code gaps. For example, units that are suitable for Aquaculture, Fishing operations, Biosecurity, Post-Harvest (processing and distribution) industry sectors may be changed to cross sector XSI codes.
