Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) are responsible for planning the work that will occur in the upcoming years to skill standards and qualifications for their industry. Each IRC develops a Four Year Work Plan to provide notice to industry, training providers and the system about what is being considered for future development.
The Draft Four Year Work Plans for each industry sector have been available on the Skills Impact website for the past month and the feedback period has now closed. Thank you to those who provided feedback. Skills Impact are currently collating this feedback to hand over to the relevant IRCs.
The IRCs will review all feedback to make a decision on the final make-up of the Draft Four Year Work Plans for submission to the Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC). The Final Draft Four Year Work Plans will be made available on the Skills Impact website.
IRCs are responsible for planning the work that will occur in the upcoming years to the training package they are responsible for. The system requires each IRC to develop a Four Year Work Plan to provide notice to industry, training providers and the system about what is being considered for the future development of skill standards and qualifications in the training package.
The Work Plans from 70 IRCs across all industries are collated into an AISC National Schedule of skill and training package priorities, from this the government decides what training package projects to fund each year.
Work Plans are reviewed annually.
