The process of reform of training packages will begin in earnest when a report is delivered to the federal government by the end of the year, Assistant Minister for Vocational Education and Skills Karen Andrews has said.
A Training Product Reform Joint Working Party is currently examining the structure of training packages.
"It will determine whether there are alternative approaches to qualification design more suited to the changing nature of work into the future," Ms Andrews said.
She said the working party will deliver a report by the end of the year on the case for change to the design of qualifications.
"This is likely to be followed by a consultation process to seek feedback on any proposed changes," Ms Andrews said.
