Welcome to the Sales, Parts, Admin & Management Industry Advisory Committee page. This page forms one of several web pages dedicated to different parts of the ASA industry advisory structure.
This page is designed to provide advice to the committee members and stakeholders more broadly on the work of the committee and the anticipated work-plan for the future. It also provides access to the Training Package Continuous Improvement Plans, which are a central element in the work of ASA and its committees.
The committee and ASA welcome feedback from stakeholders and welcome inputs into the development of the national training system and national workforce development initiatives.
Feedback from members of industry to join the Sector Advisory Committees has been very positive and a full meeting of all Committee members is planned for August/September 2013. Applications for Committee positions are welcome from interested industry stakeholders. Your feedback and continued interest in joining the Committees is welcomed and applications for a position on the committee are welcomed from interested industry stakeholders.
Sales, Parts, Admin & Management Update – April 2013
Significant improvements are in place in the now endorsed AUR12 Release 1 training package. I am pleased to say that the Sales, Parts, Administration and Management qualifications now reflect the job role that an apprentice or trainee will be required to have to meet the demands of today’s vehicle sales, parts interpreter, service station attendant and auto administration and management industry sectors.
These qualifications, skills sets and units of competence are available on www.training.gov.au for RTO’s to now add to their scope of registration.
Work is currently being undertaken to streamline the competencies to reflect the new NSSC standards for training packages. This work includes reviewing and rewriting of the units application, elements, performance criteria, and range of conditions. The units will also have Foundation Skills embedded in them which will include language literacy and numeracy and employment skills that are essential to performance of the specific unit in the workplace
There is a new document called the Assessment Requirements that contains performance and knowledge evidence and context of assessment which can include the resources required for the assessment process. This new standard will see units being written in a more clear, concise language that is easier to read and understand.
Another ongoing project is the review of the continual improvement activities that have been added to this industry sector for possible future development of new units or skill sets. This task requires the industry sector committee to discuss and agree on new projects.
