Glossary term: Training package

Training packages define the competencies required by different occupations and industries and describe how these competencies may be packaged into nationally recognised and portable qualifications that comply with the Australian Qualifications Framework.

A new model for engaging Australian industry in the development of training products was announced in April 2015. Under the new arrangements, endorsements of training packages are done by the Ministerial Council responsible for education and training. The Ministerial Council is supported by three entities: the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC); Industry Reference Committees (IRCs); and Skills Service Organisations (SSOs).
