We are seeking your feedback on Draft 2 training package components for the MSS ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ Project.

To view Draft 2 training package components, click here.

As the Skills Service Organisation (SSO) for the Sustainability training package, IBSA Manufacturing is currently reviewing and developing ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ components to ensure that units and qualifications reflect industry requirements. The Sustainability Industry Reference Committee (IRC) guides this development work and has nominated a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to provide industry expertise.

We will be conducting webinars on Tuesday 13 November to outline the minor changes made from Draft 1 to Draft 2 components. To register for a webinar, click here.

The 2018 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Project involves the following review and update of the MSS Sustainability Training Package to reflect current industry practice:

  • development of a new unit – MSS015xxx Develop response to corporate social responsibility
  • development of two new Skill Sets – Lead response to corporate social responsibility and Direct corporate social responsibility
  • review of 33 existing units of competency to ensure the emerging skills and expectations necessary to support customer, client and corporate responsibility requirements meet industry needs
  • strengthening the alignment between required CSR skills, units and the qualifications to improve job outcomes

The outcome of this work is that:

  • there is a clearly defined focus for learners seeking to strengthen their corporate social responsibility skills, or manage their organisation’s corporate social responsibility requirements
  • units are easier to read and understand
  • assessment requirements and CSR knowledge have been strengthened to meet industry needs across all 3 Sustainability streams of study (Sustainable Operations, Environmental Monitoring and Technology, and Competitive Systems & Practices)

All content has been updated to reflect current industry practice and to comply with the National Standards for Training Packages.
