The Sustainability Industry Reference Committee (IRC), supported by IBSA Manufacturing, has reviewed the MSS Sustainability Training Package. The Case for Change was approved by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) in 2019.

Milestones

Outcomes

The Case for Endorsement, Companion Volume Implementation Guide and Project Components have received ministerial approval from the AISC and the COAG Skills Council. Release 4.0 of the MSS Sustainability Training Package is now available on the National Register of VET, training.gov.au.

Thank you to the industry experts and the  Sustainability IRC who gave so freely of their time to shape the changes. Thank you also to all stakeholders who provided comment throughout the project.

Training packages were reviewed to address the following

  • Energy price shock is an issue and risk that is directly affecting the ongoing viability of Australian businesses.
  • There is demand for courses currently offered outside of VET, indicating a growing interest in energy management.
  • While large enterprises may have access to expertise in this area, small and medium-size enterprises may not.
  • The subject area crosses all business areas, as does the MSS Sustainability Training Package.
