Many of the skills most valued by industry cut across multiple sectors of Australia’s economy. Yet training package components are not always developed in a way that recognises the importance of skills in multiple sectors or encourages training products to be used to their full potential in different industry contexts.
The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) has identified a number of cross sector skill areas where opportunities exist to create flexible and transferable training package components that will benefit the broader VET sector as well as industry and learners from across multiple sectors of the economy. These cross sector skill areas are at the forefront of growth and innovation in Australia.

We are excited about the opportunity to increase flexibility and efficiency in Australia’s VET system. We look forward to collaborating with the AISC, the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment, Industry Reference Committees, Skills Service Organisations and other stakeholders in pursuit of this worthwhile objective. Our experience as a professional services firm provides us with relevant subject matter expertise. Our operation as a Skills Service Organisation provides us with the experience needed to navigate the complexities of developing cross sector training package components.
