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.
