Update on IRC Draft Four Year Work Plans

IRC Draft work plans are now available for feedback for the following training packages:

On behalf of the relevant IRCs, we will be collecting feedback until 15 August 2016.

Industry Reference Committees (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.

Final copies of the IRC Four Year Work Plans will be submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) by the end of September and will be available on the Skills Impact website. 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.

These plans will be living documents and updated annually by the IRCs.

Draft Work Plans for the following training packages are expected to be available over the next few weeks, once the relevant IRCs have reviewed the drafts and they are ready for industry input.

  • Animal Care and Management
  • Agriculture, Horticulture and Conservation and Land Management
  • Food, Beverage and Pharmaceutical Processing
