The Council works like this:
The JTC is made up of the Manufacturing Jewellery Industry as a whole. Divide into three independent industry clusters as follows:
Training Council and Assessment Review Panel, TCARP: This panel is made up of Manufactures and has the explicit obligation to review all apprentice work in each state to maintain valid and independent oversite of training outcomes for the Manufacturing Jewellery Industry. They are also responsible for Training Package review and development. The council members are chosen from the industry community and must be qualified Manufacturers who have had apprentices and who’s business are still currently producing on a commercial basis.
Independent Suppliers and Educators: These members have a financial obligation to the JTC. They pay a regular membership which allows them to engage with the training delivery of courses that they deliver to the Training Package requirements, with a Valid committment to Industry standards. All documentation will be done through the AJMD and final processing via MinRes..
Industry Community of Manufactures: This group is the core community and is made up of Manufacturing Jewellers. Their membership is free, and the Training Council Assessment and Review Panel is chosen from this group. Often communication is derived from social media interactions, industry meetings and one on one engagement with manufactures.
All participants are both consumers of education and industry participants. The TCARP is the final stop for education implementation and standards. The TCARP members are not paid for their work.
The Validation Process
Each Year in November all students wishing to progress into the industry will have their work independently assessed by a JTC industry panel of Manufacturers for competency. If successful they will progress to the next stage of their training or be provided their parchment.
