New cross sector units released for the BSTP 4.0

Many of the skills most valued by industry cut across multiple sectors of Australia’s economy. Yet training package components are not always developed in a way that recognises the importance of skills in multiple sectors or encourages training products to be used to their full potential in different industry contexts.
