Training component changes
Many packages had at least a few significant changes.
There was a focus on the arts and animals this month. Note that the numbers indicate how many units were shuffled around within the qualifications (and how often) and not just the number of unique qualifications impacted. These figures provide an indication of the level of activity. Performing Arts (2027), Visual Arts (263), Resources (240), Animals (179), Health (60), Music (60), Media (49), Metalliferous Mining (39), Business (29), Dentistry (26), Technology (15), Logistics (12), Power Generation (12)
Again a focus on the arts and animals: Performing Arts (113), Animals (17), Retail (5), Dentistry (4), Health (4), Sustainability (3)
There was a continuing focus on employment-focused courses: Business (26), Welfare (23), Alternative Therapy (14), Religion (12), Foundation Skills (11), Sport (10).
As usual, the inclusion of counts for units moving in and out of qualifications means that unit change volumes follow the qualification changes. Again the focus on arts and animals can be seen. Note that First Aid features again because of the updates to embed the re-coded first aid units into many qualifications: Performing Arts (553), Visual Arts (260), Media (209), Animals (199), Music (167), Health (86), Business (60), Dentistry (33), Meat (20), Building (14), First Aid (13)
This month, we saw the tail of the surge in the funded providers last month, with 200 added in April compared to 500 in March). Again, this has been due to the uptake in new funding schemes to provide job retaining options following the end of JobKeeper. There are too many to list here. If you’re not already signed up for the new funding schemes, maybe your main competitors are! The full list can be found below.
