  • Background
    • The VET Products for the 21st Century report, led by COAG, has prompted a number of key VET reform policies including the streamlining of Training Packages. The purpose of streamlining is to separate performance standards from guidance and supporting information, as well as to simplify, shorten and segment the contents of Training Packages to make them more fit for purpose. The design model for streamlined training package material details requirements for future Training Package development and endorsement processes.

      Streamlining of the CHC08 Community Services and HLT07 Health Training Packages will provide an opportunity to review and update units of competency, qualifications and skill sets. To allow full coverage of CHC08 and HLT07, while maximising cross-sector commonalities, ten sector sub-groups have been established.
