Training Packages


Training Packages are sets of nationally endorsed standards and qualifications for recognising and assessing people's skills.

A Training Package describes the skills and knowledge needed to perform effectively in the workplace. They do not prescribe how an individual should be trained. Teachers and trainers develop learning strategies - the "how" - depending on learners' needs, abilities and circumstances.

Training Packages are developed by industry through National Industry Skills Councils or by enterprises to meet the identified training needs of specific industries or industry sectors. To gain national endorsement, developers must provide evidence of extensive consultation and support within the industry area or enterprise.

Training Packages complete a quality assurance process and are then endorsed by the National Quality Council (NQC) and placed on the National Training Information Service (NTIS).

Reviews ensure Training Packages remain current to meet industry needs and allow issues that arise during their implementation to be addressed.
