ASA submits the 2016 Automotive Business Case

Auto Skills Australia submits the 2016 Automotive Business Case to the AISC following extensive industry consultation

The Automotive Business Case for Training Package development work for the period 2016-2017 was submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) on the 16th of November 2016. The Business Case outlines the Case for Change for the items of Training Package development work identified in each IRC’s Four Year Work Plan.

Click here to view the Automotive Business Case.

In order to gather the data required for the Business Case, ASA Training Package developers travelled throughout the country interviewing key stakeholders around the items of work identified for the 2016-2017 period from the Work Plans. This level of consultation has become expected by the industry as the only way to fully tease out the issues in each item of work and will need to be continued in the next stage of the development work – that of the technical writing of the qualifications, skill sets and units of competency.

ASA would like to thank those who have freely given their time and energy when allowing us into their workshops and then agreeing to look at draft documents and provide feedback.
