• Gain employment in the lucrative Australian vocational education sector!
• Increase your value with Australia’s most popular training qualification!!
Have you worked within the last two years as a qualified teacher, as a lecturer within higher education or as an enterprise trainer, and now want to move into adult vocational education? This pathway is based upon recognition of prior learning (RPL) for suitably experienced training facilitators, plus gap unit training delivered via face-to-face class or via live and interactive webinars. This option is restricted to experienced school teachers, trainers and presenters who are looking to expand their abilities, or who desire a ‘sea change’ into the world of adult education within the vocational education and training (VET) sector.
The TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment qualification allows you to train and assess all nationally-recognised qualifications (i.e., from Certificate I through to Advanced Diploma) and units of competency within your vocational areas of competence.
This RPL plus gap training process was designed specifically for teachers and experienced trainers. It incorporates RPL to cover the skills and knowledge already possessed by experienced teachers (there’s no wasting time learning things you already know!) and provides training only for the gap knowledge and gap skills. This allows you to receive your TAE40116 qualification with the least amount of hassle.
You must first check your eligibility for the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment via the Teachers’ RPL and gap training course by submitting our online eligibility form.
There are many advantages in completing your TAE40116 via this program:
The TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment consists of the following units of competency.
|Qualifications||TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment|
|Duration||Students undertaking training have 12 months (except our 6-month TAE40116 Teachers' Distance+ course) from their enrolment date to complete their studies and submit all assessment workbooks for this course. (Students may extend the duration of their enrolment on a month-by-month basis – extra fees apply as detailed in our schedule of fees.) Students may complete and submit their assessment workbooks at any time during their enrolment.|
|Assessment Turnaround||The turnaround time for assessment submissions received by Plenty Training is approximately 20 working days from the date it is received. This time frame can vary depending on the number of assessment submissions being received at any given time. Once a student is deemed competent in all units they will be issued with their qualification within 30 calendar days.|
|Workload||The Course Workload & Assessment table available in the Units Tab above summarises the anticipated student workload as per our Training and Assessment Strategy for this qualification. Note that it excludes the hours associated with the units of competence for which you are eligible for RPL. This represents the notional duration of all activities required for the achievement of the learning outcomes. These figures represent a combination of all formal training delivered in this course (however students are not obligated to avail themselves of all offered training and resources), and the anticipated self-study and assessment workload for a student who has no knowledge or skills in any of the content of the delivered units.|
|Assessment||Assessment methods include:
All students receive learner's guides and assessment workbooks via our online portal. You can either work through the assessment workbooks on your computer or complete a printed version by hand.

*RPL is not automatically granted. There is a requirement to complete short answer questions for all three units of competency. Some of these questions will relate to Adult Learning Theories and Principles and may require some research. If RPL for TAEDEL402 cannot be achieved, it can be trained via webinar from within the student portal.
^A practical assessment activity is defined as an assessment task where you must have access to other individuals, groups or a qualified trainer and assessor to meet the task requirements. For example short answer questions are not considered a practical activity.
