The Premier announced formation of an LNG Jobs Taskforce at the 2018 AOG Conference and Exhibition. This Taskforce aim is to establish WA as an LNG hub with government and industry working collaboratively to maximize the benefits that will flow from an expansion in the State’s LNG industry. A key focus will be harnessing job opportunities, opportunities for the introduction of new technology, greater collaboration across education/training programs and maintenance services.
The RITC Manager is a member of the Education, Training and Innovation Working Group addressing the following items:
- LNG Operator Skills Framework (RITC Manager is the Action Plan lead and Project Manager)
- First-time Supervisor Leadership Competency Program
- Standardised Apprenticeship and Traineeship Program
- LNG Talent Pipeline – Future Skills Framework
After extensive consultation 15 new units of competency and 7 occupational specialisations have been developed under the LNG Operator Skills Frameowrk item which specifically link nationally recognised qualification streams to job roles in the industry. Round of one for public consultation for these units and specialisations has now closed. It is expected endorsement of the new units and qualification streams will occur late in 2020.
