Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Continuous Improvement
As part of Service Skills Australia’s process of continuous improvement the SIT12 Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package is currently undergoing the development phase of the transition to the Standards for Training Packages. First draft consultation will occur in the second half of 2014. The process will consist of nine phases as outlined in the diagram below:
Alongside the transition to the SIT Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package, Service Skills Australia will be undertaking clearly defined continuous improvement projects to ensure that the SIT Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package continues to reflect the needs of industry.
The continuous improvement of the SIT Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package provides the opportunity for the industry, employers and employees and training organisation, to provide input into the current and future skills and knowledge requirements of the industry. The scope of this work has emerged out of the SIT Recommended Actions Report.
The SIT Recommended Actions Report responds to key themes identified in the 2014 Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Environmental Scan, as well as general feedback received on the SIT12 Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package over the past 18 months. The 17 recommendations that are outlined in this report were approved for further scoping and development by Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Industry Advisory Committee at the 15 April 2014 committee meeting.
SIT12 Version 2 Additional Mapping - Effective 4 December 2013
Service Skills Australia has recently released additional mapping information for qualifications that were endorsed as part of SIT12 Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package Version 2.
The mapping outlines the equivalency of qualifications between SIT07 Version 3 and SIT12 Version 1, as well as the equivalency between SIT07 Version 3 qualifications and the newly released SIT12 Version 2 qualifications. Outlining the relationship between various versions of the Training Package will allow RTOs who are about to transition from SIT07 Version 3, or who are currently in the process of transitioning to the latest release of the Training Package; SIT12 Version 2.
Timelines for the submission of the SIT Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package will be determined by the release of endorsement meeting dates.
Further information will be provided upon the release of endorsement meeting dates.
