Case for change

The AMP Meat Training Package has undergone a series of small changes over the last five years, designed to meet specific industry needs. While carrying out this work, it has become apparent that the full training package requires a review to meet the updated priorities in the Training Package Development and Endorsement Process Policy and Training Package Standards. As such the Meat Industry Reference Committee (IRC) has proposed a three part project to conduct a full review of the training package, including all 24 qualifications, 446 units of competency and 75 skill sets. In consultation with industry, they will be updated to meet Training Package Standards and improve user friendliness for employers, learners and registered training providers (RTOs). This work will reduce duplication across the training package, improve the ability for employers and learners to choose the appropriate program of learning, and will simplify RTO delivery. This project is the first stage and will include the review of all general meat processing qualifications and the units of competency supporting core skills across the industry.

The Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC) approved stage one of this project, out of the 2021 Annual Update IRC Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work.

The Meat 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.

Project Plan

Australia’s meat processing workforce is made up of an estimated 69,000 highly skilled people, who contribute $45.2bn of revenue annually. In producing high quality meat products for local and global consumers, this workforce relies on a combination of core skills in safety, quality assurance, and leadership. It is important that the qualifications and skills standards that describe these core skills are kept up to date, as they are critical to job roles across the entire meat processing industry.

Consultation will take place throughout this project to update qualifications, skill sets, and units of competency that support quality assurance, safety, leadership and general skills in the meat processing industry. They will be reviewed and streamlined to promote flexible career pathways and transferability throughout different sectors. Consideration will also be given to updating the qualifications and skills standards to be in line with current Training Package Standards, so that industry can continue to have access to nationally recognised and supported training and apprenticeships.

Recent projects to update qualifications and skills standards across the meat processing industry have focused on skills needs in specialist roles, such as those within halal meat processing, game harvesting auditing, poultry, meat slicing, and rendering, as well as leadership occupations. It has become apparent throughout these projects that the entire AMP Meat Training Package would benefit from a review to address duplication, adjust units to better reflect the level of task described, and remove skills standards that are no longer working for industry. This project is the first of a three-part process to update the Meat Training Package so that it supports flexible career pathways and is easier to deliver. More specialised industry skills standards that have not been recently reviewed will make up the following two stages of this project.

This project will be managed by Skills Impact working with MINTRAC, under the guidance of the Meat Industry Reference Committee.

 

Project Scope

This project will review the Certificate III in Meat Safety, Certificate III in Quality Assurance, Certificate IV in Meat Safety, Certificate IV in Quality Assurance and Certificate IV in Leadership qualifications and 125 units, with a focus on the core units required for these qualifications.

Specialisations or job role streams may be built into qualifications, to support flexible training pathways and remove duplication in the training system. This will also allow for groupings of job roles at relevant AQF levels within single qualifications.

Subject Matter Experts

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

If you are able to volunteer your time to this project and would like to express interest to be a subject matter expert, please email details of your expertise to Don Jones djones@mintrac.com.au.

 

Opportunities for stakeholder input

Stakeholder input is essential 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 late November 2021, and again for validation of final drafts in June 2022. However, your feedback is welcomed at any time, and will help us in drafting the qualifications and units. It is important that training provides a skilled and flexible workforce for the future. The qualifications and units need to reflect real work experience. So if you work in the sector, Skills Impact and MINTRAC encourage and appreciate your input. Please feel free to register your interest for project updates and consultation opportunities by following the newsletter subscription link above. Alternatively, please feel free to contact Don Jones djones@mintrac.com.au.

You are also welcome to subscribe to the MINTRAC newsletter, the MINTRACker.

 

Stakeholder Consultation Process

A list of key stakeholder organisations has been identified for this project. Skills Impact and MINTRAC will ensure contact is made with each of these organisations 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 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 any other engagement activities. 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.

 

Development

The Australian meat processing industry relies on core skills in safety, quality assurance, and leadership to produce high quality meat products for local and global consumers. These skills are crucial for the entire industry, so it is important that the qualifications and skills standards that support them are up to date. This project will revise qualifications and units of competency to incorporate these essential skills.

A group of subject matter experts have been engaged to provide advice on the skills standard across six potential specialisations or job role streams, including:

  • tracking and traceability
  • meat inspection
  • quality/food safety
  • leadership/management
  • operator skills/abattoirs
  • game.

The subject matter experts have begun reviewing 125 units, as well as the:

  • Certificate III in Meat Safety
  • Certificate III in Quality Assurance
  • Certificate III General
  • Certificate IV in Meat Safety
  • Certificate IV in Quality Assurance
  • Certificate IV in Leadership
  • Certificate IV General

Consideration has been given to updating job functions; reducing duplication; removing obsolete and under-utilised qualifications and units of competency, and those that do not comply with the current Training Package Standards, to improve RTO delivery and support increased enrolments. Updating the qualifications and units to incorporate specialisations or job role streams will support future work to improve the full Australian Meat Processing (AMP) Training Package. Specialist streams can be added to general or baseline qualifications, as required by industry.

Consultation Webinars – Registrations Open!

The draft qualifications, skill sets and units are expected to be available for comment on this website in late November 2021, under the ‘Drafts Available’ menu above. We welcome your feedback and advice on the draft skills standards in this time.

Drafts Available

Core skills in safety, quality assurance, and leadership are essential to the Australian meat processing industry and its workforce of approximately 69,000 people. As such it is important that the qualifications and skills standards that describe these skills are kept up to date, supporting job roles across the entire meat processing industry.

Draft qualifications and units of competency for some of the core skills used in the meat processing industry are now available for your review and feedback. Please find these drafts listed below. The units of competency are divided into sector groups for ease of consultation.

Seven meat processing qualifications have been revised and merged into two qualifications, resulting in one at a Certificate III level and one at a Certificate IV level. They contain specialisations to promote flexible delivery and career pathways. The units of competency have been revised and updated to include updated skills for tracking and traceability, quality assurance and safety, and to comply with current Standards for Training Packages 2012. Five units have been developed to capture skills required to promote workplace health and safety, working as part of a team, hygiene, sanitation, food safety and quality, and recognising animal diseases and conditions. Sixteen units are proposed for deletion as they are no longer required by industry. Nineteen units have been merged into three units to better reflect job functions and reduce duplication.

Please find the draft units listed below. You are welcome to provide feedback on as many of the draft documents as you would like. Please share these with others who may be interested in providing feedback.  

We are seeking feedback on whether the draft qualifications and units reflect the current skills standards and practices of industry, and whether job functions are accurately described. For more details and explanations about what changes have been made, please download the summary of changes document.

The draft qualifications and units will be available on this webpage for feedback from 11 November until 31 January 2022.  

Feedback will inform the work on the final drafts which will be available for industry validation in June 2022.
