Four new Flexible Learning Toolboxes (Toolboxes) have been released by the Australian Flexible Learning Framework (Framework), with another three coming soon!
The Series 13 Toolboxes have been developed in consultation with Industry Skills Councils to support the delivery of nationally endorsed training packages.
Series 13 focuses on supporting skills shortages in the trades and aligns with the Australian Government’s National Green Skills Agreement, which aims to embed sustainability skills in all training packages over the next few years.
Debbie Soccio, Toolboxes Business Manager, said Toolboxes provide cost-effective, hands-on training that can be customised to suit individual needs.
“Toolboxes are highly visual and interactive education and training products, with the scenarios, images and activities designed to reflect a real life workplace.
“They can be cheaply and easily customised to form complete training packages and meet individual training requirements.”
The four newly released Series 13 Toolboxes are:
Plumbing: Licensed to Plumb 2 extends the Series 12 Licensed to Plumb Toolbox by supporting an additional three units from the Certificate IV in Plumbing and Services (eight units in total). It focuses on core skills and knowledge for licensed plumbers in the mechanical services, sanitary and roofing streams.
Electrotechnology: Harness the Sun addresses three units from the Certificate IV in Electrical (Photovoltaic Systems) and provides timely support for training in a high growth industry - namely rooftop solar panels that generate clean electricity.
Music: Music Box supports the Certificate II in Music, which includes working with new technologies for producing, performing and distributing music as well as musical industry knowledge.
Manufacturing: Sustainable Manufacturing supports Certificate II and Certificate III qualifications in the Manufacturing Training Package. It introduces experienced workers to a formal learning environment engaging them in structured sustainability training.
The other three Series 13 Toolboxes cover the Electrotechnology, Forestry and Asset Maintenance industries and will be released shortly.
The Series 13 Toolboxes add to a collection of more than 120 Toolboxes across a diverse range of educational and industry areas, helping deliver over 190 qualifications and supporting more than 1,000 units of competency.
