The Community Sector and Development IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to Chaplaincy and/or Pastoral care, Community Services and Development, Indigenous and Environmental Health/Population Health, Volunteering, and Youth Services. These qualifications are included in the CHC 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 Community Sector and Development IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation, SkillsIQ. For more information visit SkillsIQ.
