June 2019: Consultation

Second draft training package components for the Laundry and Dry Cleaning Project were available for consultation from 13 June to 27 June 2019.

Summary to Date:

  • The main changes to Draft 2 components was the updating of seven (7) units from an AQF Level 2 framework (Certificate II), to an AQF Level 3 framework (Certificate III) to more accurately reflect the employee level for the job tasks and skills required in the units. This also necessitated the review of units in each qualification (core units and electives), and resulted in revised qualifications that reflect more appropriately job tasks and responsibilities at each level.

November 2018

IBSA Manufacturing is pleased to advise that the Laundry and Dry Cleaning Project has commenced. Industry experts have been approached to form a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and provide guidance in the development of training package components. They are scheduled to have their first meeting in the coming weeks.

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.

Draft 1 components are scheduled for public consultation by mid-February 2019. IBSA Manufacturing will provide opportunities for industry engagement and feedback via a series of National industry forums and webinars. Please register your interest in the project and stay updated with component development and consultation opportunities.
