IRC membership details are updated each quarter.

The Education IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to Training and Education and Foundation Skills.

These qualifications are included in the TAE Training and Education Training Package and the FSK Foundation Skills Training Package.

The IRC will consult widely during any future training package development process providing opportunity for any interested parties to make a contribution.

Technical Advisory Committees may also be established to inform future work, utilising a broad range of stakeholders with technical and specific industry knowledge.

The Education IRC is currently supported by the Skills Service Organisation, PWC Skills for Australia.

Further information about the role of IRCs and how they operate can be found in the IRC Operating Framework.
