Training Packages

training package, in Australia, is a set of nationally endorsed standards, qualifications and guidelines used to recognise and assess the skills and knowledge people need to perform effectively in the workplace. Training packages are developed by Service Skills Organisations or by enterprises to meet the training needs of an industry or group of industries. Training packages prescribe outcomes required by the workplace, not training or education.

Training packages can be difficult to understand by those not in the educational field. They can include educational pathways from the AQF, Competency descriptors and performance criteria, and qualification requirements (which mix of competencies can be used for a qualification and the Training Plan for getting there).
