Certificate IV in Training and Assessment

TAE40116 - Release 1

The TAE training package was recently updated from the TAE40110 to the TAE40116, and we are very excited to be able to offer it to you, in partnership with Fortress Learning (RTO #: 31974).

About this Course

This nationally recognised qualification is designed for those that have relevant industry skills and knowledge and are looking to actively work in the vocational education sector, or to be a trainer and assessor in their workplace, teaching accredited or non-accredited training.  The TAE40116 is the very latest Certificate IV Qualification of the TAE training package. Successful completion will equip you with the skills and knowledge to be able to effectively train and assess students in adult education in Australia, as well as teach you generic training skills that will help empower you to work with your staff in a supervisory role.

The course focuses on the real-world skills that a trainer and assessor will need for understanding the Registered Training Organisation (RTO) landscape, and how to truly be an impactful trainer and assessor within your job role.

We offer course delivery through our training locations in Hobart, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Gold Coast as well as some Queensland regional centres including Cairns, and Mackay.

Note, for international students – we are not CRICOS registered, please check your visa requirements for enrolment. We cannot accept international students who are on a student visa.

  • What is the difference between the TAE40110 and the TAE40116?

    The TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment has been superseded by TAE40116.

    The key notable differences between the TAE40110 and the TAE40116 are documented below:

    • The qualification packaging rules of the TAE40116 have changed.  There are now 9 core units, of which the TAELLN411 and the TAEASS502 are included.  There is now only 1 elective.
    • Two of the units, TAEASS401 and TAEASS403 are now not equivalent to the old TAEAS401B/TAEASS403B so, for those students upgrading from the old TAE40110 – further evidence will be required to demonstrate competency.

    Another important point to note is that the new TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment places greater emphasis on the candidate’s ability to design and conduct effective assessment.

    With these new additions come more practical tasks and candidates will get a lot more practice designing, developing, using and reviewing assessment tools, participants will also graduate with a far greater understanding of the assessment process, and be more confident in the workplace in this area.

  • Completion Timeframes

    The Australian Qualifications Framework advises what they believe is a good indication of how long different courses should take.  These are called the Volume of Learning Indicators, and they suggest that a Certificate 4 level qualification should take 600-1200 hours.

    In our experience, every person is different, and so the time it takes one person to complete is different to the next person.  This largely depends on each person’s experience, dedication to their studies, and their other personal commitments.

    Students will have up to 18 months to complete the TAE40116 course, however students may be able to complete within 6 months, dependent on their individual schedules and commitment to completing assessment tasks.

    Our suggested Volume of Learning for this qualification is 6 months – 2 years   (600 – 2400 hours).

    As a component of this, the average amount of training provided in this instance is:

    Hours of supervised instruction (40 hrs per week):  80 hours
    Hours of tutorials (40 hrs per week):  80 hours
    Hours of unsupervised activities (46 hrs per unit):  460 hours
    Hours of assessment (20 hrs per unit):  200 hours
    Total hours: 820 hours

  • Delivery Methods

    Blended Face to Face Course

    The TAE40116 will encompass two 5-day face to face workshops (Part 1 and Part 2).  All workshops run from 8.30am to 4.30pm.

    Upon enrolment, you will book into both the Part 1 and Part 2 workshops (it is recommended that Part 2 be no earlier than 1 month following Part 1).

    There will be self-paced reading, research, presentation preparation, and answering of short-answer questions, required outside of the face to face component.

    For details of which units are covered during the above Workshops, please see the Units of Competency tab on our website.

    In between each Workshop, and following the course, you will also have trainer support to guide you along your journey.


    Distance Learning

    This course is also offered by distance learning.  Participants will need to be working in an RTO environment, with access to a Diploma qualified TAE individual for supervision.  You will also need to film 3 presentations (one presentation will need to be in front of a group of 8 participants).  Conducting of assessments must be observed by a Diploma qualified Assessor within your workplace, or can be completed via live video link with a RAM Trainer and Assessor.

    Alternatively to filming the presentations and assessment of candidates, participants can complete the work from home, and then book in to do the major presentation and final assessment-conducting which will be held during one of our full course Workshops.  You will still have 2 presentations that will need to be filmed from home, and submitted prior to your attendance at this Workshop.


    Upgrades

    Upgrade is NOT required until April 2019, however naturally it is recommended.  Many employers will now be encouraging their employees to attain the latest TAE40116 qualification to meet workplace demands.

    Key things to note: 2 units have been added to the TAE40116 (TAELLN411 and Assessment Diploma unit TAEASS502), and another 2 assessment units are NOT equivalent.

    Please see the Upgrade tabs below for further information on this option.

  • Full TAE40110 to TAE40116 Upgrade

    If you already hold a TAE40110, and wish to upgrade to obtain a TAE40116 qualification, the following will apply.


    Units Covered

    • TAELLN411
    • TAEASS502
    • TAEASS401
    • TAEASS403


    Method

    There will be pre-course short answer questions to answer prior to a 2-day face to face Workshop.

    If a student already has their LLN unit, they will be able to submit their Statement of Attainment/TAE40110 and get Credit Transfer for this unit.

    Students will gain competency in the non-equivalent units through gap training conducted in this Workshop.

    This option cannot be done by distance learning.


    Documentation Required

    • Resume
    • TAE40110 certificate
    • TAE40110 transcript
  • Partial Upgrade

    This option will NOT give participants the TAE40116, however will allow you to continue to work in a Trainer and Assessor role from April 2019 onwards.  Upon successful completion, you will receive a Statement of Attainment for the units completed.


    Units Covered

    • TAELLN411
    • TAEASS502


    Method

    This option can be completed as 1 day of our full Workshop, or can be done by distance learning – however it is highly recommended that people undertaking this option are working in a training and assessing environment, and are working under supervision of a Diploma-qualified individual.

  • RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) Upgrade

    This option is similar to the Full Upgrade option, however is for those individuals that have been ACTIVELY working in an RTO, and can provide evidence to substantiate that they would meet the criteria of the units below.


    Units Covered

    • TAELLN411
    • TAEASS502
    • TAEASS401
    • TAEASS403


    Method

    Upon enrolment, students will be required to complete a questionnaire detailing their proposed industry that they are looking to train and assess in, as well as providing evidence of industry experience.

    Participants will be sent an RPL Checklist prior to enrolment, to enable them to ascertain if they have the evidence required for RPL.  If so, this method will require them to provide the evidence for RPL.

  • Teacher's Upgrade

    This method is available for secondary school teachers who have current teaching experience of 12 months or more.

    This face to face course runs for 3 days.  There will be pre-course work required, and homework on the nights of the course.
