Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Continuous Improvement

SIT Continuous Improvement and Transition to the Standards for Training Packages

Service Skills Australia has commenced transition of the SIT12 Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package to the Standards for Training Packages, and is currently in the development phase. First draft consultation will occur in the second half of 2014.

Alongside the transition of the SIT Training Package, SSA will be undertaking clearly defined continuous improvement projects to ensure that the Training Package continues to reflect the needs of 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 Service Skills Australia Environmental Scan, as well as general feedback received on the 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.
