1B - Training Packages specify the skills and knowledge required to perform effectively in the workplace. Trainers and supervisors develop learning strategies ‐ the "how" ‐ depending on learners' needs, abilities and circumstances. The development and endorsement process for Training Packages ensures the units of competency, qualifications and skills sets are developed to an agreed quality standard and are highly responsive to industry’s existing and future demand for new skills. One such Training Package is the Agri-Food Training Package found at http://www.ntis.gov.au/?trainingpackage/all.
1C – The main benefits of a Training Package include: Training meeting the needs and requirements of industry and standards set by industry; qualifications are consistent and nationally recognised, making it easier for students to move between states and territories and for employers to hire people who have worked for other companies or moved from interstate; students and employees have the flexibility to choose how, when and where the training is undertaken; and individuals and businesses are assured of the quality of training and qualifications in areas that specifically suit the needs of the enterprise.
2A - The Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) is the national set of standards which assures nationally consistent, high-quality training and assessment services for the clients of Australia’s vocational education and training system.
