Transport & Logistics Training Package Update

The Transport and Logistics Training Package Release 1.0, containing eleven qualifications in the Warehousing, Logistics and Road Transport sectors, has now been submitted for endorsement by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC). The final 25 qualifications in the current Transport and Logistics Training Package will be submitted for endorsement in November.

The process of transitioning training package products to the Standards for Training Packages has provided an opportunity to review all qualifications and units with stakeholders to ensure currency. This review has resulted in a number of improvements to TLI Training Package.

TLISC greatly appreciates the time that all stakeholders have dedicated to the transition process to ensure the development of a high quality Training Package that meets the skills needs of industry, enterprises and individuals.

Should you require any further information about the Transport and Logistics Training Package, please contact Judy Green on 03 9604 7214 or by email: judy.green@tlisc.org.au.

Training Packages progress accelerates

Training Package progress accelerates

The first week of September has been very significant with a number of milestone achievements for industry stakeholders and the TLISC Training Package team. We’ve seen the endorsement of two Training Packages, the AVI Aviation Training Package and the MAR Maritime Training Package along with the submission of the TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package for endorsement.

MAR Maritime Training Package Release 3.0 – Endorsement

The MAR Maritime Training Package Release 3.0 was endorsed on 1 September 2015. Release 3.0 includes 5 Qualifications and 20 Units of Competency.

Further information can be found on the TLISC website.

AVI Aviation Training Package Release 1.0 – Endorsement

The AVI Aviation Training Package Release 1.0 was endorsed on 1 September 2015. Release 1.0 includes 1 Qualification, 12 Units of Competency and 2 Skill Sets.

Further information can be found on the TLISC website.

TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package Release 1.0 – Submission:

The TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package Release 1.0 was submitted for endorsement to the Department of Education and Training on the 1st September 2015. The Case for Endorsement includes 37 qualifications, 63 skill sets and 439 units of competency and which have been aligned to the Standards for Training Packages.

The materials can be found on the TLISC website.

While the two Training Package endorsements and the submission of TLI were significant, there is still more to be done to get all of our Training Packages transitioned to the Standards for Training Packages. It’s pleasing to say that we remain on track to complete all transition and review work across our three Training Packages by November. The industry led improvements to our Training Package products will provide enhanced opportunities to meet the current and future skills demands of workplaces across the Supply Chain in the Aviation, Maritime, Rail, Road Transport, Warehousing, Logistics and Ports sectors.

Transport and Logistics Update

Warehousing and Logistics

As part of our ongoing process to move the Warehousing and Logistics qualifications and units of competency to the new standards, the first round of changes were available for comment on the TLISC website. Thank you to all of the people that provided feedback and comment in this important process.

The feedback we have received will now be taken to our next Warehousing and Logistics steering committee on the 18th September, to discuss the changes, as well as to discuss the possible inclusion of Chain of Responsibility units into the qualifications. These units have now been given the ‘sign off’, following a review of feedback received during the public validation stage. The units will now undergo the required QA prior to being distributed to STA’s.

Feedback is also being sought on a new qualification for Schedulers. This draft qualification was developed out of a need raised in the Rail sector but it can equally sit within the Warehousing and Logistics sector, so we will be presenting this qualification at the next Warehousing and Logistics steering committee for comment as well.

If you require any further information about the Transport and Logistics Training Package please contact Judy Green on 03 9604 7214 or judy.green@tlisc.0rg.au.

Stevedoring Review

TLISC has commenced the alignment of the following stevedoring qualifications in the TLI10 Transport and Logistics Training Package with the Standards for Training Packages.

  • TLI21413 Certificate II in Stevedoring
  • TLI33513 Certificate III in Stevedoring
  • TLI41710 Certificate IV in Stevedoring Operations

At the first meeting of the Stevedoring Steering Committee, held on 27 August 2014, it was concluded that the structure and content of the current qualifications would remain the same.   The units of competency will undergo minor changes, with the main change being the strengthening of the assessment conditions.   The draft qualifications and units of competency will be available on the TLISC website throughout October and early November 2014. Further information can be found on: http://tlisc.org.au/stevedoring-qualifications or by contacting Eddie Hardman on 03 9604 7234 or eddie.hardman@tlisc.org.au.

Learning About Logistics

PUBLICATIONS | 23 Sep 2014

Learn about Logistics

Business on the Move is a business education board game developed by teachers in the United Kingdom to teach young people, and adults, the basics about running a business. Based on logistics, the game can be played at seven different levels with increasing complexity. While mainly intended as a teaching resource in secondary schools, the game is also being used by industry for inducting new employees and training employees about what their organisation does.

The UK version of the game was launched in London on 27 June with the help of 50 organisations that have supported the game as sponsors including UK Warehousing Association, GB Railfreight, Tesco, Marks & Spencer, Unilever, Jaguar Land Rover, DHL, Chep (Brambles), the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport and DP World London Gateway.

An Australian version of the game is now being considered with students in Year 9 and 10 at Ocean View College in Adelaide playing the game as a pilot linked to two recently introduced subjects: Logi Biz and Logistical Strategies.

Although some of the Australian students recognised a number of the UK business names on the game board, many commented they would like to have Australian business names on the game so they have a better idea of the link between the container contents and the customer order deliveries as they play the game.

If your organisation would like to find out about sponsorship opportunities with an Australian version of Business on the Move, please contact Dr Lindsay Ryan: Lindsay@corpedadvisers.com.au. To learn more about Business on the move: http://www.businessonthemove.org.

Work is nearing completion on the review of the Dangerous Goods tankers units of competency. This work includes the development of Skill Sets for Chemical, LP Gas and Fuel tanker drivers.

Chain of Responsibility Project

The three Chain of Responsibility (CoR) units of competency have now been through the industry validation stage, and the feedback received will be referred to the CoR Steering Committee for consideration.

Warehousing and Logistics Project

The Steering Committee for the review of the Warehousing & Logistics qualifications met in late July. The main focus of this work is to align the qualifications and units to the Standards for Training Packages. Draft materials have been developed for feedback and are currently available on the Warehousing & Logistics Project page.

Stevedoring Qualifications Project

TLISC has commenced the alignment of the Certificate II and III in Stevedoring to the Standards for Training Packages. In addition to the development of the Certificate II and III, the Certificate IV Stevedoring Operations will be fully reviewed. The current units of competency and qualifications will be aligned to the Standards for Training Packages and will be amended as required to better address the current and future needs of the industry. The review will be an opportunity to address any issues that have been raised since the endorsement of the qualifications.   For more information, please visit the Stevedoring Qualifications project page.
