INDUSTRY REFERENCE COMMITTEES

IRCs drive priorities for the review and development of Training Packages. They are made up of people with experience, skills and knowledge of their particular industry sector.

It is their job to ensure Training Packages address the needs of employers, employees, training organisations and students.

Training Packages

The Australian Vocational Education and Training (VET) system aims to provide individuals with work-ready skills for the labour market – skills that businesses and industries need in order to be highly productive and internationally competitive.

Supporting the national VET system, Training Packages specify the skills and knowledge required to perform effectively in the workplace through units of competency. Training Packages also describe how these units can be packaged into nationally recognised qualifications aligned to the Australian Qualifications Framework and industry recognised Skill Sets.
