We would like to thank all the stakeholders that worked with us for over a decade in the development and maintenance of the RII Training Package for the Resources and Infrastructure Industries in Australia.
Where can I purchase SkillsDMC learning and assessment resources?
Over two decades of activity, SkillDMC developed a number of training and assessment materials for the Resources and Civil Construction industries for Australian and International contexts. These products have been used by training providers and operating companies to meet the training and assessment needs of current and future workers of these industries. At Sustainable Skills, we believe that these resources form an important asset for the industry and we have decided to make them available through our new e-shop. During the transition our online shop was fully renovated. We hope you enjoy the new customer experience.
What is Sustainable Skills?
Sustainable Skills brand is born as a result of the transition that SkillsDMC has undertaken over the year 2016, with the aim to enhance our consultancy experience in building effective TVET systems worldwide.
Between 2003 and 2016, SkillsDMC was engaged by the Australian government as the Industry Skills Council for the Resources and Infrastructure Industries (RII). Over the years, SkillsDMC has connected industry, government and training organisations to develop and maintain the RII Training Package, which specifies the skills and knowledge required for workers to perform safely and effectively in the civil infrastructure, coal mining, construction materials (quarrying), drilling and metalliferous mining industry sectors. With almost fifteen years’ experience shaping and maintaining TVET systems and frameworks, we have learned how to:
- build Industry-led TVET systems,
- establish industry committees able to identify the right skills needed by the labour market, and
- set up effective training programs able to form highly skilled workforces
Five years ago, SkillsDMC decided to extend this expertise to the development of vocational education and training (TVET) systems worldwide. Since then, we have helped a number of countries to improve their TVET systems including Mozambique, Zambia, Vietnam, The Philippines, and Timor Leste.
SkillsDMC brand has now evolved to Sustainable Skills and we want to continue following our course of applying our proven methodology across a broader range of sectors. We believe that our expertise together with the Australian TVET best practice can support the development of successful vocational education systems, particularly in emerging countries, to ensure equal access to quality education, lifelong learning, and employment opportunities for all.
