Feedback on Skills Standards for Ag & Horticulture Core Skills

There are technical skills and knowledge that underpin many core work functions across Australia’s agriculture, horticulture, conservation and land management industry. This includes vital skills for supporting work health and safety, environmental practices, quality assurance procedures and workplace recording, as well as the skills to support research initiatives, staff performance, and community related projects and programs, and the skills required to build and maintain infrastructure.

These fundamental skills have evolved in recent years, meaning the national skills standards require updating.

With guidance from industry experts, the qualifications and skills standards that describe these essential skills have been updated to reflect recent changes in regulations, technology, and new research.

Your feedback is encouraged to help define the skills and knowledge that underpin these core work functions.

The draft qualifications and skills standards are available for an extended period, to account for the festive break. They will be available until 4 February 2022.
