In Consultation

View Project Overview (and Outcome)

September 2019: Public consultation – Round 1 now open, seeking your feedback

First draft training package components for the Industrial Sewing Skill Set project are currently available for review until Tuesday 24 September 2019. Click here to access the Consultation Paper.

The Industrial Sewing Skill Set is intended to be applicable to several related industry sectors for the development of transferable, entry-level skills to facilitate the movement of workers with similar skills and assist employers experiencing skills shortages. As a result, proposed changes have been made to two sewing units in the TCF Textiles, Clothing and Footwear Training Package. Links to the two units are available in the Consultation Paper and should be read prior to providing feedback on the drafts.

Providing Feedback
Feedback should be emailed to [email protected] by Tuesday 24 September 2019.

When providing your feedback, please add the name Industrial Sewing in the subject line of the email. It is just as important for us to receive feedback telling us you agree with the proposed changes as it is to provide feedback with suggested changes.

We would also welcome your participation in webinars being held on Thursday 19 September from 3-4 pm [EST] and Monday 23 September from 12-1 pm [EST]. Please register your interest here.

July 2019: Update

A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) has been formed and the first meeting was held on 18 June 2019.

The development of an industrial sewing skill set is being considered to ensure alignment with industry skill needs, current work practices and equipment. Work has also progressed to align existing units of competency to the skills required of an industrial machinist from across training packages.

Draft 1 components are scheduled to be available later this month.

April 2019: Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to be formed

IBSA Manufacturing is pleased to advise that Industrial Sewing Skill Set Project has commenced. Industry experts will be approached to form a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and provide guidance in the development of training package components in the near future.

The review of the qualifications and unit content will be considered by the TAC to ensure alignment with industry skills needs, current work practices and technology. This review will also identify any duplication and obsolete units which may be considered for removal.

First draft training package components are scheduled for public consultation by July 2019. IBSA Manufacturing will provide opportunities for industry engagement and feedback via a series of National industry forums, webinars, and via the website. Please register your interest in the project and stay updated with component development and consultation opportunities.
