Industry Training Packages represent national industry benchmarks for nationally recognised job outcomes in the vocational education and training system. They are an integrated set of nationally endorsed Competency Standards, Assessment Guidelines and Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications for a specific industry, industry sector or enterprise.

Training packages comprise:

  • Competency Standards define the requirements for workplace performance. Theses are outcome-focused and specify the application of knowledge and skill to the standards of performance required by the workplace.

  • Assessment Guidelines provide a quality assurance framework for accurate, reliable and valid assessment of the competency standards, ensuring that assessments are thorough, consistent and valid.

  • Vocational Education and Training qualifications support attainment of formal certification recognising that a person has achieved work-related competencies and a meaningful outcome at an industry or enterprise level. Qualifications generally comprise core and elective units required by workers to perform a particular job.

Vocational competency can be achieved in many ways, and Training Packages acknowledge this by emphasising (via units of competency) what a learner can do – not how or where they learned to do it. For example, some experienced workers might be able to demonstrate competency against the standards and gain a qualification without completing a formal training course (skills recognition or recognition of prior learning).
