Industry Reference Committees comprise experienced people who have knowledge and skills from each industry sector. As a committee, they are responsible for driving the development of training packages that meet the current and future needs of industry.

IRCs perform the following functions, with support from IBSA:

  • Provide a forum for industry engagement
  • Gather intelligence for their industry sectors to inform advice on training package development and review
  • Direct the work of its SSO in the development of Skills Forecasts, Cases for Change, Cases for Endorsement and other support material
  • Oversight the development and review of training packages in line with the requirements of the AISC
  • Provide sign off for Industry Skills Forecasts, Cases for Change, Cases for Endorsement and other submissions for consideration by the AISC
  • Report to the AISC on progress of its work
  • Promote the use of Vocational Education and Training (VET) in the sectors they represent
