A second round of validation is underway for the final draft qualifications, skill sets and units of competency relating to wine operations.
It follows stakeholder feedback that further changes were required to the final drafts in order to meet industry needs. The final drafts have been revised to meet these needs, as well as the Standards for Training Package Development 2012.
After the first validation round closed on 26 February, Skills Impact conducted further consultation with stakeholders to revise the documents. A stakeholder teleconference was held on 28 February; a unit survey took place between March – April; and a workshop was held in Adelaide on 12 April, with 15 participants from industry and training providers, to resolve some of the issues arising from the validation.
Validation means checking and confirming that the documents are logical and factually accurate.
We are seeking your views on whether the revised qualifications and the related skill sets and units reflect the current occupational skill standards and needs of industry. These final drafts will be available for validation and feedback until 10 May 2018.
A summary of the feedback received during the first validation round (from 9 – 26 February 2018) and a description of its consideration and application in these revised final drafts can be downloaded from the project webpage.
