CHC UPDATE about the AISC submission

In the latest Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC) Meeting held last 23 February 2021, the Committee, the Case Endorsement for the Children’s Education and Care update was not fully approved.

Out of the six qualifications sent for approval only four were approved and the two will be sent back to SkillsIQ for further revisions. The last two qualifications are planned to be resubmitted to the AISC for approval. If you’re looking for the full update on the latest AISC Meeting, read more here.

For those delivering training in the Early Childhood Education and Care sector, it’s pertinent to keep abreast of the latest in the training package. Read on to learn more about what the latest CHC training package update entails.

A quick overview of the Update to the Early Childhood Education and Care qualifications

The following qualifications and their associated 65 units of competency in the Children’s Education and Care Sector were up for review:

The AISC recently announced that the following qualifications are “in-principal approved” which means the Committee has signed off on the qualifications.

However, there were two qualifications that were not approved by the Committee and are subject to resubmission. These qualifications will be reviewed again by relevant stakeholders and the Industry Reference Committees (IRC) to meet the issues raised during the meeting.

The publication of the four approved qualifications will be delayed until the CHC50121 and CHC40121 qualifications are completed.

The AISC will consider meeting out of session to discuss the Early Childhood Education and Care update if required. The goal is to approve the two remaining qualifications so the training package can be endorsed and published on training.gov.au in a timely manner.

What does this mean for RTOs?

For now, the release of the latest CHC training package is put on hold. Those with the current training materials for the qualifications mentioned above and their related units of competency are still able to deliver training and be compliant with ASQA standards.

However, a lot of students are already holding off enrolling on the affected qualifications due to future upgrades. If your RTO wants to take advantage of the growing demand for the latest courses, they must act quickly and adapt to the changes just as fast.

The best thing for RTOs to do right now is to have a transition plan ready once the new qualifications are officially published on training.gov.au. You can do this by securing your training materials as early as now.
