We're taking an in-depth look at the Business Services package

A broad review of the Business Services (BSB) Training Package will soon begin at the national level at the direction of the BSB Industry Reference Committee (IRC) and supported by the skills service organisation PwC’s Skills for Australia.

The BSB Training Package houses a large volume of cross-functional business training products, the BSB IRC has identified an opportunity to better equip learners with the transferable skills and knowledge needed to thrive in the future Business Services workforce.

This represents an exciting opportunity to play a critical role in improving and shaping training to meet the current and future skills needs of industry.

Two projects (‘Business Enterprise Skills’ and ‘Technical Skills’) will be delivered in seven streams of work, each to be guided by a Project Working Group (PWG) of subject matter experts.

Lesley Mitchell, Chair ACFIPS Business Services, and Max Wilson ACFIPS Executive Director, have been appointed to the Project Working Group for stream seven, Leadership and Management Group.

An ACFIPs forum on Leadership and Management is planned for later which will provide an update on the project and allow those interested to provide input to the project

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
