Case for Change
The objective of this project is to review Work Health and Safety (WHS) qualifications and Units of Competency (UoCs) and address identified deficiencies in training product content.
The qualifications included in the scope of this project are the Certificate III in Work Health and Safety (BSB30715), Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety (BSB41415), Diploma of Work Health and Safety (BSB51315), and Advanced Diploma of Work Health and Safety (BSB60615).
PwC’s Skills for Australia prepared the Case for Change for this project on behalf of the Business Services Industry Reference Committee (BSB IRC) and submitted it to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) in March 2017.
The AISC endorsed this project on 11th April 2017.
Prior to developing the draft training products, PwC’s Skills for Australia carried out industry consultations for this project from July – October 2017.
Consultation activities included:
A series of open forums were held in capital cities across Australia. The forums were open to the public and designed as a way to work interactively with participants to explore key questions relating to potential changes to the training products in scope.
The Training Product Improvement survey, was developed and open to the public to complement subject matter discussed and workshopped in consultation.
Throughout the project we held targeted consultations with key stakeholders who were identified by BSB IRC members, Project Working Group members, or through PwC’s network of contacts. Consultations were generally held in the form of one-on-one phone or face-to-face interviews.
Training Product Development
Following additional feedback, we extended the consultation period for the development of draft training products into 2018.
Consultation on draft training products has now closed.
The next step will be to develop a Case for Endorsement, which will be submitted to the AISC for approval.
