Supply chains are all around us and affect how we live, as well as the movement of products, people and data. The food we eat, clothes we wear, buildings we inhabit, and transport we use are all examples of how we benefit from multiple supply chains.
The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) recently commissioned the development of 10 cross-sector supply chain skill sets and 16 units of competency for use by multiple industry sectors. These products address many core skills that are common across industries, improving the efficiency of the national training system and supporting individuals to move more easily from one related occupation to another.
The cross-sector products cover issues of growing importance to industry and the Australian economy more broadly, such as sustainability, ethics, traceability, blockchain and digital supply chains. They were developed with input from representatives of key industries.

Resources for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs)
RTOs can access a cross-sector supply chain compendium for guidance on delivering the cross-sector products. The compendium includes resources such as case studies and links to reports, articles, blogs and videos that support the skill sets and units of competency which are housed in the TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package. This is intended to support high quality training delivery and assessment of supply chain skills.
Supply Chain Career Paths
Supply chain career paths are changing, with plenty of new and exciting opportunities. New or existing workers can use the cross-sector products to upskill or reskill to pursue diverse job opportunities.
