Updated: 21 October 2021

The CHC Community Services Training Package – Individual Support, Ageing and Disability has been approved at the latest AISC meeting!

Full Communique from the 12 October 2021 meeting can be found here.

The AISC also acknowledged that the project has been underpinned by extensive stakeholder consultation, with multiple opportunities provided for stakeholders to give feedback. Concerns raised and the proposed responses were documented comprehensively. It also noted that there continue to be residual, significant differences in views among some sections of industry relating to the content and structure of a small number of units of competency.

Given these concerns, and in the interest of achieving a timely resolution building on the work the three IRC’s have already done, the AISC approved the training products for endorsement on the condition the training products are referred to Skills Senior Officials Network (SSON) to urgently provide advice on common outstanding issues related to the content and structure of the qualifications and steps that can be taken to support RTO implementation.
