August 2019: Update

The AISC has approved the Case for Endorsement for Release 2.0 of the MST Textiles, Clothing and Footwear Training Package.

This release revised two qualifications:

  • MST50119 Diploma of Applied Fashion Design and Merchandising
  • MST60119 Advanced Diploma of Applied Fashion Design and Merchandising.

Two new ‘buying’ related skills sets were developed:

  • MSTSS00001 Textiles, Clothing and Footwear Buying Skill Set
  • MSTSS00002 Textiles, Clothing and Footwear Sourcing for Production Skill Set.

15 existing units of competency and eight qualifications were revised. One new unit MSTGN4014 Produce and analyse spreadsheets, was developed.

As a result of the deletion of the LMT07 Textiles, Clothing and Footwear Training Package:

  • 11 LMT07 units were transitioned to the MST Textiles, Clothing and Footwear Training Package
  • Two LMT07 qualifications and eight LMT07 units were deleted.

Thanks to all members of the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and Textiles, Clothing and Footwear Industry Reference Committee (IRC) who have given so freely of their time to shape the changes. Thanks must also go to all stakeholders who provided comment throughout the project.

Release 2.0 of the MST Textiles, Clothing and Footwear Training Package is now available on the national register, training.gov.au.


The MST Case for Endorsement, the final draft MST Textiles Clothing & Footwear Training Package components and MST Companion Volume Implementation Guide were submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) for approval on 2 April 2019.

Thanks to all members of the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and Textile Clothing & Footwear Industry Reference Committee (IRC) who have given so freely of their time to shape the changes.

Thanks must also go to all stakeholders who provided comment throughout the project.
