Case for Change
The Case for Change for this project was established as a result of initial research and consultations outlined in the 2016 Education Industry Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work.
The Education Industry Reference Committee identified that the FSK Training Package must be reviewed to ensure that it reflects current industry needs and is being utilised appropriately. Education industry experts indicated that the Package required review and changes to address a number of issues including skills gaps, inconsistencies in delivery, poor visibility of units and the need for clarity of learning outcomes.
The Case for Change outlined the following industry drivers:
- The Package is relevant to all sectors.
- There is a growing need for Foundation Skills in the workforce.
- Foundation Skills are critical for employment and continuing employment.
PwC’s Skills for Australia prepared the Case for Change for this project on behalf of the Education IRC and submitted it to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC).
On behalf of the Education IRC, PwC’s Skills for Australia carried out industry consultations for this project from February 2017 – March 2018.
The consultation period has now closed. For a summary of the key findings from this period, click on the link below.1
