Auto Skills Australia is committed to ensuring that industry has a key voice in training and workforce development within the automotive industry.
We have established an advisory structure that maximises industry input in:
- The development of Training Packages
- Research projects on training and workforce development
- Advice to government on skills and labour issues
- Workforce development projects.
What is the advisory structure?
Our advisory structure operates at three levels:
1. The National Training Advisory Committee comprises the Chairs of the Sector Specific Advisory Committees. Its key roles are to:
- Ensure communication across the various sector groups, and
- Advise on cross-sector skill and qualification issues.
2. The Sector Specific Advisory Committees establish the Training Package Continuous Improvement Plans for their sector. They use a range of information, including their industry knowledge, feedback from industry contacts and research findings, to determine priority areas for Training Package reviews.
3. The Training Package Reference Groups are smaller working groups. These groups work with the ASA Training Package Specialists to develop units of competency and qualifications that reflect contemporary industry practice. The work of the Training Package Reference Groups is determined and endorsed by the relevant Sector Specific Advisory Committee.
The ASA Chief Executive Officer reports to the ASA Board on the work of these groups.
The ASA Advisory Structure is shown in the following chart. Click here to download this chart as a PDF.
