Veterinary Nursing Project Underway to Improve Skills Standards and Qualifications

Friday, March 17th, 2017

Relevant veterinary nursing units of competency and qualifications within the ACM10 Animal Care and Management Training Package are being reviewed to ensure they reflect the current occupational skill standards and needs of industry.

Consultation is underway with the project Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to draft units of competency and qualifications. The draft materials will be available for broad stakeholder consultation during April. There will also be a series of national face-to-face workshops that stakeholders are welcome to attend to provide feedback on the draft components.

Industry can register their interest on the Skills Impact website to keep informed of project updates, including when draft materials are available for feedback and registrations are open for the national workshops.

Training Package Projects are determined by the Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC), based on information submitted by the Industry Reference Committee (IRC) in their annual Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work. On behalf of the IRCs, Skills Impact are currently collecting feedback on the draft IRC Skills Forecasts and Proposed Schedules of Work.
