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.

Validation

 

The final draft skill sets and units of competency for wine operations are now available for industry validation. Please find these final drafts listed below, divided into groups for ease of validation.

Validation means checking and confirming that the documents are logical and factually accurate. We are seeking your views on whether the qualifications and the related skill sets and units reflect the current occupational skill standards and needs of industry. These final drafts will be available on this webpage for validation and feedback until 26 February 2018.

How to participate in the validation process

Please download the final draft skill sets and units that you are interested in reviewing and validating. After reading the final draft, click the ‘provide validation and/or further comment’ button below and select the specific skill set or unit you would like to validate and/or provide further comment on. Note: once you complete one skill set or unit in a group you will be asked if you would like to provide feedback on another skill set unit in that group. There is also the option to provide feedback via email to wjones@skillsimpact.com.au if you would prefer.

A summary of the feedback that was received during the consultation period (between 21 November – 19 December 2017) and a description of its consideration and application in these final drafts can be downloaded below.

Reviewed Qualifications and Units Proposed for Deletion

The two qualifications for wine operations have been reviewed to reflect appropriate alignment with AQF levels. There is now a clear distinction between the Certificate II and Certificate III which enables individuals to select specialisations within these qualifications, to provide pathways between the qualifications, as well as identifying clearer job roles. We are seeking your feedback on these draft qualifications, as well as the proposal to replace several FDFWGG units with AHC equivalent units, in order to remove any duplication of units. This is in-line with the Council of Australian Governments’ directive to reduce the duplication of units from within training packages. Please find the draft qualifications and details of the units below. They will be available for your feedback until 23 February 2018. To provide feedback, please download the relevant document and click the ‘provide feedback via online form’ button. Alternatively, you click the ‘submit feedback via email’ button where there is the option here to attach the document with your comments. Your feedback will inform the final drafts of these documents, which will be available for industry validation in late February/early March.

Initially it was proposed that Wine Grape Growing (WGG) units would remain in the FBP Food, Beverage and Pharmaceutical Training Package and be recoded as Viticulture (VIT). Subsequently, the relevant Industry Reference Committees have agreed that the Wine Grape Growing (WGG) units are better suited in the Production Horticulture sector (PHT) within the AHC Agriculture, Horticulture and Conservation and Land Management Training Package.

We are now seeking your feedback about the proposed transfer of these units from the FBP Food, Beverage and Pharmaceutical Training Package to the AHC Agriculture, Horticulture and Conservation and Land Management Training Package.

These units have been updated to meet Standards for Training Packages and incorporate the feedback received during the consultation phase of this project.
