The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) has set up a new quality assurance panel of independent experts to assess vocational education and training packages and ensure that they meet the needs of industry.

“The new independent Training Package Quality Assurance Panel will help the AISC to make sure the national training system provides employers and workers with the skills and knowledge they need to be productive and competitive now and in the future,” says Prof John Pollaers, Chair of the AISC.

He adds: “Building quality in VET is a priority for the AISC, as a responsive, flexible national training system is fundamental to businesses’ competitiveness and Australia’s future prosperity.”

The quality assurance panel is made up of independent and highly qualified specialists, and is seen as the next step in improving the level of accountability in training package development. The panel will help build employers’ confidence in vocational education and training by also ensuring training packages meet all standards and requirements.
