On 27 January 2016, the former Minister for Vocational Education and Skills, the Hon. Luke Hartsuyker MP announced the outcome of the Expression of Interest process to identify Skills Service Organisations (SSOs) to support Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) in their work to develop and review training packages.
The successful SSOs are:
- SkillsIQ – CHC & HLT Training packages
- Artibus Innovation
- Skills Impact
- PwC’s Skills for Australia – TAE Training package
- Australian Industry Standards
The Minister also announced the arrangements that have been put in place for the mining and drilling, the manufacturing and the automotive sectors. The IRCs for these sectors will receive support from their former Industry Skills Councils until their SSO is identified:
Contact details are available.
The services to these sectors will be consistent with those provided to other IRCs in line with the Expression of Interest (EOI) to operate as a Skills Service Organisation and the Training Product Development Programme Guidelines.
