The Sustainability Industry Reference Committee (IRC), supported by IBSA Manufacturing.
A review of the competitive systems and practices–related qualifications in the MSS Sustainability Training Package.
• Public consultation will be conducted on this Case for Change in March and April 2020.
• The Case for Change is scheduled for submission to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) in the second quarter of 2020.
• This is the most highly-enrolled subject area of the training package, accounting for 97% of enrolments.
• New forms of human–machine and machine–machine interaction are emerging, leading to more sustainable and competitive business operations.
• Stakeholders identified that there are currently no formal skill sets that enable skilled workers to implement specific initiatives and practices including 5S and Kaizen.
• There are untapped opportunities for businesses to upskill their entire workforce by implementing organisation-wide competitive systems and practices initiatives.
• There is an increasing focus on advanced manufacturing and sustainable manufacturing processes.
• Feedback has been received indicating that several competitive systems and practices units have duplicate content.
What’s the latest?
January 2020: IBSA Manufacturing is currently conducting research and consulting with stakeholders.
IBSA Manufacturing, on behalf of the Sustainability Industry Reference Committee (IRC), is currently undertaking research to develop a Case for Change to review and update the Competitive Systems and Practices qualifications in the MSS Sustainability Training Package.
In consultation with the Sustainability IRC, IBSA Manufacturing will establish an IRC subcommittee to oversee the development of the Case for Change.
Cases for Change provide evidence and a rationale for proposed changes to training package components. Once prepared, IBSA Manufacturing, on behalf of the Sustainability IRC, submits a Case for Change to the AISC for their review and consideration. When a Case for Change is approved, it forms the basis of a training package project.
This Case for Change will focus on reviewing and updating Competitive Systems and Practices qualifications to meet workforce upskilling demands and emerging technological changes.
