August 2019: Update

The AISC has approved the Case for Endorsement for Release 2.0 of the MST Textiles, Clothing and Footwear Training Package. Release 2.0  is now available on the National Register of VET, training.gov.au.

The Case for Endorsement supported project work that was completed in two parts:

  1. Buying Skills in Fashion and Textiles Project
  2. Medical Grade Footwear and Wool Processing Project.

The key aim was to replace, delete or transition outstanding components in the existing LMT07 Textiles, Clothing and Footwear Training Package to the MST Textiles, Clothing and Footwear Training Package.

1. Buying Skills in Fashion and Textiles Project

This project 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.
