Welcome to Plenty Training. We work with everyday people who have a wealth of knowledge and experience and are ready to share their gift with the world with the TAESS00021 Facilitation Skill Set.

We leave our graduates feeling empowered by and proud of their achievements as they begin their journey into the world of TAE. The TAESS00021 is a life-changing qualification available via a range of pathways to suit your needs and we are excited to share our passion and years of experience of working with the TAE with you.

The Standards for RTOs 2015 clauses 1.17 & 1.18 allow those who possess this TAESS00021 Facilitation Skill Set to deliver training under the general supervision of a trainer. However, you must also have vocational competencies at least to the level being delivered and assessed (e.g., if you are delivering a hairdressing unit you must have suitable hairdressing competencies); and have current industry skills directly relevant to the training and assessment being provided. This skill set does not allow you to determine formal assessment outcomes. (Refer to the TAESS00019 Assessor Skill Set.)

The TAESS00021 Facilitation Skill Set supersedes and is equivalent to TAESS00015 Enterprise Trainer and Assessor Skill Set.

RPL is an assessment only process that is designed for those who possess substantial existing skills and knowledge in a specific industry. It allows people to demonstrate their competence in these skills without first having to be trained. Our RPL kit is based on a combination of evidence submission and a competency interview conducted via phone.
