The Australian Skills Quality Authority have advised “The Australian Government has decided (in consultation with states and territories) that the Training Package Assurance function will not transition to the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). Instead, the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations [DEWR] will establish an independent Training Package Assurance function to ensure training products meet national standards.”
DEWR’s role in the assurance of training packages will be in place for when the new Industry Clusters are formed. It is expected DEWR’s ongoing role will be reviewed during 2023.
