How is the content of a VET course developed?

Every training qualification and skill set within the vocational education and training system is part of a Training Package.

Training Packages are shaped by industry, both in their initial development and through an ongoing review process, and are designed to address current and future industry needs. The development and review of Training Packages is undertaken by Industry Reference Committees, supported by:

For more information about the Training Package Development process contact Training.Packages@skills.tas.gov.au.

Why should employers and industry groups get engaged in training package reviews and development?

Skills Tasmania encourages employers and industry groups to actively participate in the development of training packages in their occupational areas, to ensure that training meets industry needs and standards. There is an open process for comments, contributions and submissions on changes and updates to the content and delivery of training courses.

It is important that industry and employers remain aware of reviews and proposed changes to training packages, by regularly monitoring the website.
