View Project Progress and Outcome


IBSA Manufacturing is pleased to support the Textiles, Clothing and Footwear Industry Reference Committee (IRC) to transition, replace or delete outstanding components within the existing LMT07 Textiles, Clothing and Footwear Training Package to the MST Textiles, Clothing And Footwear Training Package. This review is intended to complete the transition work not finalised in 2016.

This project involves work in the following areas:

Medical Grade Footwear
o Redevelopment and relocation of 7 ‘Medical Grade Footwear’ units
o Deletion of 3 ‘Medical Grade Footwear’ units

Wool Processing
o Development of 1 new unit in ‘Wool Processing’
o Redevelopment and relocation to 3 ‘Wool Processing’ units

We will be seeking specific feedback on the training package components for these two sectors – Medical Grade Footwear and Wool Processing to ensure that units and qualifications reflect industry requirements.

Other work:
It is important to note that:

  • 11 superseded or superfluous units and 6 superseded qualifications which were identified for deletion in 2016 will be actioned, and
  • Cotton ginning and TCF Mechanic qualifications and units are flagged for transition to the MEM Manufacturing and Engineering Training Package

It is anticipated that this project will be completed by early 2019 and will be released with the MST ‘TCF Buying Skills’ project (MST Release 2.0).

Methodology and Timelines
This project follows the Training Package Development and Endorsement Process Policy and uses the IBSA Manufacturing Training Package Development Methodology. This process provides robust evidence to support the Australian Industry Skills Committee’s (AISC) decision making process.
