Especially if you're an RTO involved with the BSB Training Package

PWC Skills for Australia recently released the Case for Endorsement for the proposed BSB 7.0 Training Package. Its currently scheduled to be put forward to the Australian Industry Skills Council in August 2020. The changes significantly simplify the package. Access the details at:

The key challenges for implementing the revised Training Package are primarily for RTOs to address and include:
• Changes to scope of registration for RTOs
• Ensuring ASQA Standards for RTOs compliance, especially around:

  • teacher qualifications and currency
  • product integrity, quality and compliance
  • Teach out requirements are met
  • Marketing material changes

The changes are not expected to impact traineeship and apprenticeship arrangements. However, the current traineeships in Business Administration (Education, Medical), Customer Engagement and Library and Information Services will need to be amended.

Which school subjects should you choose?

These flyers are suitable for both school-based apprenticeships or post-school apprenticeships. Each flyer sets out a possible career path for the student and then suggests the elective subjects that will make that career path possible. The subject lists cover choices in years 9 & 10 and 11 & 12. The flyers are designed to make sourcing information easy for careers advisers too. Each flyer features a strong, identifiable image that indicates each type of apprenticeship. Laid out side by side, comparisons between subject choices are simple.

If you’re interested in the same sort of flyers for the Construction, Plumbing, Signs & Graphics, Painting & Decorating and Fire Sprinkler Fitting industry sectors, you’ll find them at the Apprenticeship Engagement Forum website
