Case for Change
The Case for Change for this project was established as a result of initial research and consultation undertaken by the previous Mining, Drilling and Civil Infrastructure (MDCI) Industry Skills Council, SkillsDMC.
The project was outlined in the MDCI Industry Reference Committee Four Year Work Plan and was submitted in a Case for Change – previously referred to as a Business Case – to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) in December 2016. In order to facilitate continuity for industry, Skills for Australia commenced industry consultation and progressed the project towards the Case for Endorsement phase of work.
The objective of this project is to ensure that Australia’s Vocational Education and Training system is adequately preparing learners in underground shotfiring and mobile mixing of explosives within the RII industry and to ensure that appropriate workplace safety training regarding this task is being delivered.
On behalf of the MDCI IRC, PwC’s Skills for Australia carried out industry consultations for this project from July – November 2017.
Following the MDCI IRC’s approval of our key findings from consultation we have developed draft training products to address the skills gaps identified in underground shotfiring and mobile mixing of explosives.
The final round of consultation on these draft training products has now closed.
