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

Velg Training


Recorded on 02/12/2019 and forming part of Velg Training's Focus Week on Foundation Skills, this webinar outlined the major changes and enhancements to the FSK qualifications and units.

Topic Overview

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 outlined the major changes and enhancements to the FSK qualifications and units.
