UEE Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology - Electrical

Project scope

 

The Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology – Electrical project is to review this qualification and develop five new Units of Competency in the Electrotechnology Training Package to ensure they reflect the intent of this qualification and meet the needs of learners.

 

During the transition of UEE11 to the 2012 Standards for Training Packages additional assessment conditions were added to units linked to electrical licencing to ensure the skills and knowledge were applied in the workplace. This addition was very important to meet industry’s expectations for those units. Eight of those units appear in the core of UEE62120 Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology. This qualification is a direct entry Advanced Diploma intended for candidates that will never work as electricians, nor acquire an Electrician’s Licence. Few of these candidates will have the opportunity during their training to apply the skills and knowledge in an actual workplace, which is a requirement of the assessment conditions.

 

This project will create new replacement units covering higher level theoretical concepts that will be more appropriate for entry level Electrical Engineering.

 

Without the proposed new units, the qualification is no longer viable for delivery. Closely aligning core units to the vocational destinations of graduates will solve the current issue, whilst also improving outcomes for both graduates and their future employers.

 

VIEW CASE FOR CHANGE

 

The Electrotechnology Industry Reference Committee (IRC) will have oversight of this project, which will be facilitated by Australian Industry Standards (AIS) in consultation with industry stakeholders. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will be formed for this project.

 

If you have any questions about this project, or are a subject matter expert and would like to be considered for the TAC for this project, please contact the Industry Skills Specialist.

TAC ESTABLISHED

 

5 OCTOBER 2021

 

The Electrotechnology Industry Reference Committee has established a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) for this project.

 

Comprising 10 subject matter experts from Industry, RTOs, and Peak Bodies, the TAC has been tasked with:

  • Providing specialist industry subject-matter knowledge in the development of replacement units covering higher level theoretical concepts that will be more appropriate for the vocational destinations of graduates.
  • Validating the technical content of the Training Package products
  • Identifying relevant qualitative and quantitative data sources to inform the development of draft materials
  • Reviewing feedback from stakeholders through public consultations
  • Assisting in identifying and engaging broader industry networks to participate in consultation and/or validation activities during the duration of the project
  • Offering advice and guidance to assist in informing the direction of the project throughout its duration
  • Making recommendations on the developed Training Package materials to the relevant IRC, which has the final decision-making authority.

 

The first meeting of the TAC is scheduled for 13 October 2021.

SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS NEEDED

 

Work on this project has commenced and the Electrotechnology IRC is forming a TAC.

 

Your industry expertise and insight is welcome to help review and develop Training Package materials to:

 

The Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology – Electrical project will review one qualification and develop five new Units of Competency to better reflect the intent of qualification and needs of its target audience. A number of current core units are aligned to the acquisition of occupational licences and include a requirement for evidence to be gathered in authentic workplace settings which is inappropriate given the qualification is primarily delivered in institutional settings. The project will develop replacement units covering higher level theoretical concepts, which will be more appropriate for the vocational destinations of graduates.

 

Registrations closed Thursday, 16 September 2021.
