Summary of review and consultation process

The qualification review was led by the External Working Group (EWG) which comprised of key industry personnel who were representative of the wider dairy processing industry, the provider who currently delivers a programme of study leading to the qualification, and the Primary ITO Dairy Processing Sector Manager.

EWG members met in November 2018. Discussion included the changes that had occurred in the industry over the last five years; any future changes likely to impact on the qualification; and how well the qualification was meeting industry need. Changes required to the qualification were discussed and the qualification was revised.

 

Main changes resulting from the review

         Minor changes to graduate profile outcome (GPO) statements for clarity

         Minor change to Employment/Cultural/Community Pathway to clarify expectations of industry for this role.
