Focus Week: What’s changed in the revised Foundation Skill Training Package? (FSK)

2 December 2019

This webinar is one of five available during Velg Training's dedicated Focus Week - Foundation Skills.  A dedicated week of learning opportunities (one webinar per day) specifically designed to increase knowledge and skills of VET practitioners in targeted topics.

About this webinar

What’s changed in the revised Foundation Skill Training Package (FSK)
Over the last few years the Foundation Skill Training Package (FSK) has been reviewed and revised. This review was the first opportunity to reflect on the use and the content of the FSK after its initial implementation across Australia.

After much consultation and many discussions, a revised structure for the FSK was created and units were revised and updated to reflect the feedback received. This webinar will outline the major changes and enhancements to the FSK qualifications and units.

Key topics covered within webinar

  • The review process and key feedback from consultations
  • The status of the revised FSK
  • The purposes of the FSK
  • The changes to the structure of the FSK, including of the qualifications
  • Changes to the units – what has changed? New Units and the revised existing units
