Furnishing IRC membership

All IRCs are appointed by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC). The IRC is made up of people with experience, skills, and knowledge to support training package development for the Furnishing Industry.

Patrizia Torelli is the Chair of the Furnishing Industry Reference Committee

“The most important link in the chain is the student – after all, they are the next generation of leaders and if the training is great, then so too is our future.”

The Vocational Education and Training system needs to be flexible and responsive to address specific industry skill needs.”
