The lately released Manufacturing and Design training plan (MEM 2.0) is not only inadequate for the demands of sector, but imposes substantial restrictions and also concerns on apprentices, companies, as well as TAFEs.

Therefore, Weld Australia calls on the Federal government to undertake an in-depth evaluation of the TAFE welding educational program.

According to Weld Australia’s Ceo, Geoff Crittenden, “The latest variation of the MEM training package differs really little from the 1998 and 2005 variations. As a matter of fact, most of the devices as well as much of the material continues to be similar.”

” Not remarkably then, MEM 2.0 births no relation to what is actually called for by industry. It neglects the significant technical advancements as well as changes that will remain to happen in Australia’s engineering and also manufacturing sectors.”

” The course still dedicates time and energy to oxy-acetylene welding, which sector has not been made use of for around two decades. Young welding pupils get in the workforce without the requisite abilities or understanding. Generally talking, TAFE graduates can not review a welding treatment, set up a welding equipment, or weld according to Australian Requirements.”
” The future of Australian industry in a post-COVID-19 world can not count on spewing an educational program that is 20 years old,” said Crittenden.

The only real distinctions in the MEM 2.0 training bundle are a significant rise in requirements, and the addition of over 2,000 hours of mandated office method. Both of which will certainly impose considerable limitations and also problems on pupils, sector as well as TAFE.

” With prolonged training courses, conclusion rates are most likely to go down, with pupils expected to complete a majority of theory-based, non-practical units prior to having the possibility to learn the hands-on useful abilities in which they are most interested,” stated Crittenden.

” MEM 2.0 mandates a work environment technique component of over 2,000 hours. This will place significant burden on companies that need to ensure that pupils have the ability to satisfy this demand. Over 90% of production companies in Australia are Little to Medium Enterprises (SMEs), with fewer than 19 employees. These services are unlikely to have the ability to monitor the office technique demands. They simply won’t employ apprentices.”

” Australia’s welding curriculum must focus on the skills that will certainly be important to the future of market. These skills must be focused on developments such as automation, robotics, expert system, large information, and progressed production procedures. It is these skills that will see Australian sector continue its press right into premium, complicated, small-batch production.”

” The Federal Government need to change MEM to ensure that the educational program educates skills such as programs, operating and keeping robots, co-bots as well as welding makers integrated with expert system. It needs to include units that instruct students exactly how to analyse and also utilize huge data. It should explore principles such as Industry 4.0 and additive production.”

” The TAFE welding curriculum need to be revised to ensure that satisfies sector demand now, and into the future. It can not be slowed down by extreme prerequisites, mandated workplace practice that employers simply can’t deliver, as well as training in skills that simply aren’t pertinent to industry anymore.”

“Our youths need to obtain facility, high order technical knowledge as well as abilities. They require durable, deep and also transferrable qualifications that offer a strong base for life-long knowing and also ability growth. They require a TAFE system with educational program concentrated on the future,” stated Crittenden.
