Case for Change
The objective of this project is to review the suitability of a number of telecommunications technology qualifications that may not be fit for purpose within the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Training Package, and to determine what changes or additions can be made to better meet the needs of industry.
The qualifications included in the scope of this project are:
- ICT20215 Certificate II in Telecommunications Network Build and Operate
- ICT20315 Certificate II in Telecommunications Technology
- ICT30215 Certificate III in Telecommunications Digital Reception Technology
- ICT30315 Certificate III in Telecommunications Rigging Installation
- ICT30415 Certificate III in Telecommunications Network Build and Operate
- ICT30515 Certificate III in Telecommunications Technology
- ICT41115 Certificate IV in Telecommunications Network Design
- ICT41215 Certificate IV in Telecommunications Engineering Technology
The Case for Change for this project was established as a result of initial research and consultations outlined in the ICT 4 Year Work Plan. PwC’s Skills for Australia prepared the Case for Change for this project on behalf of the ICT Industry Reference Committee (IRC) and submitted it to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) in October 2016.
The AISC endorsed this project on 17th November 2016.
On behalf of the ICT IRC, PwC’s Skills for Australia carried out industry consultations for this project from January 2017. Consultation focused on identifying the key changes to training products required to more closely align training in information technology with the skills needs of industry.
Following the IRC’s review of our key findings from consultation and the recommendations we proposed for changes to training products, we developed draft training products to address skills gaps.
We are now accepting feedback on the draft training products prior to developing a Case for Endorsement for changes to the ICT Training Package.
Consultation details for the draft training products can be found under the ‘Training Product Development’ tab above.
Thank you to those who provided their valuable input. To keep up to date with how the project is progressing, please subscribe to our website.
Training Product Development
Consultation on draft training products has now closed.
The next step will be to develop a Case for Endorsement for changes to the ICT Training Package, which is to be provided to the IRC for approval and submitted to the AISC.
Thank you to all those providing their valuable input, and remember to subscribe to our mailing list to be kept up to date on how the project is progressing.
The AISC approved the Case for Endorsement for this project at its meeting on 26th March, 2019.
We expect the resulting changes to be reflected on training.gov.au by July 2019.
