Almost out now: new Business Services Training Package

The final draft of Business Services (BSB) Training Package (business enterprise skills and technical skills projects) has been submitted to the Department of Education, Skills and Employment and will be considered for endorsement by the AISC on Wednesday 12 August 2020. Following successful endorsement, it is expected that the training products will be available on in mid-October. The documents are now available for downloaded from this link; BSB Training Product V6
PWC’s Skills for Australia has been asked to apply for an 18-month teach-out period to ease in transition between new and old Training Packages. In the latest version there are 
• 16 Business Enterprise qualifications from Certificate I in Workplace Skills to Graduate Diploma in leadership and management.
• 14 Technical Skills qualifications from the Certificate III level to Advanced Diplomas in library, legal, HR, auditing and marketing specialisations.
• 4 qualifications in Work Health and Safety from Certificate III to Advanced Diploma level.  

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
