Case for Change
Advances in applied emerging technologies, including in advanced data science, artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, and blockchain are presenting significant opportunities for learners, businesses and the broader economy. Australian employers are increasingly seeking employees with skills in applied emerging technologies to fulfil the requirements of in-demand jobs like artificial intelligence specialists, blockchain solution architects and robotics software engineers – all of which were ranked in the top fifteen emerging jobs in LinkedIn’s 2020 Emerging Jobs Report Australia. This project proposes to create new units of competency and skill sets in in-demand technologies.
A Case for Change for this project will be considered at the 23 February 2021 AISC meeting.

On behalf of the ICT IRC, PwC’s Skills for Australia commenced consultation for this project in March 2021.
The consultation plan has been designed to engage the widest possible population of stakeholders from all states and territories, non-metropolitan regions, and small and medium sized organisations.
Consultation methodologies include:
- Inter-organisational and intra-organisational focus groups; in-person and via teleconference and video conference facilities
- In-depth individual interviews; in-person and via teleconference and video conference facilities
- Survey instruments open to the public; online
- Public feedback on proposed changes; online
These methodologies are being used to gather data from relevant stakeholders including:
- Employers including both ICT organisations and non-ICT organisations;
- Peak bodies including industry and professional associations;
- Industry networks and subscriber based mailing lists;
- Industry Reference Committee members;
- Registered Training Organisations and trainers and assessors;
- State Training Authorities and Industry Technical Advisory Boards;
- Federal, state and territory government departments and government owned corporations;
- Identified key stakeholders including individuals and organisations.
Consultations involve identifying the expertise of stakeholders and engaging them on the specific changes to the training package relevant to their expertise.
