MINTRAC Meat Industry Training Network 2012-13

The MINTRAC Training Networks provide the means of ensuring that R&D outcomes, innovation, new regulatory requirements and industry requirements become embedded into the meat industry training system and are delivered and assessed in a manner which is consistent across the industry. The networks also provide the means of ensuring that meat industry training requirements and priorities are communicated to State and Federal Training Authorities. 

Twelve training network meetings were held during 2012-2013, in the states of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia. The National Training Conference and Meat industry training awards were also held. 

A wide range of issues were raised, discussed and actioned through the Training Network meetings during 2012-2013, for example: Requests for professional development programs; EU training requirements; and Continuous Improvement consultations. Numerous negotiations and issues were raised with State and Federal Training Authorities in relation to funding and training priorities. 

The MINTRAC Meat Industry Training Networks continue to play a vital role in facilitating the transfer of knowledge from research outcomes to training programs as part of the uptake of innovation in the meat processing industry; and ensuring that the meat industry training system meets the business and strategic requirements of the industry. The Networks ensure that the training personnel of the meat industry have currency of knowledge and skills and that training for the meat industry continues to address industry priorities and requirements. 

Six recommendations are made in this report.
