Case for Change
Given the rapid rate of technological development, many areas of ICT now require different skills and knowledge, such as in database technologies, game development, networking and other ICT sectors. Since the ICT industry is only going to continue advancing, it is critical that available training reflects current industry trends so that Australia’s workforce is equipped with in-demand ICT skills.This project aims to refresh the skills and knowledge across current units of competency and skill sets that were last revised in 2015, as well as create skill sets that can be ‘stacked’ upon each other towards attaining a qualification.
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.
