Gain a competitive edge in the lucrative VET sector with the highly sought-after TAE50116!
Improve your marketability by holding TWO TAE Diplomas! 

Do you hold the TAE50211 / TAE50216 Diploma of Training Design and Development and would like to improve your marketability with the highly sought-after TAE50116 Diploma of Vocational Education & Training

With limited providers certified to deliver both TAE Diplomas, we have been assisting many of Australia's trainers and assessors to gain a second TAE Diploma by adding the TAE50116 to their resume. 

This process is most suited to individuals who only require full unit gap training for one or two units, most commonly the TAELLN501 Support the Development of Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy Skills unit

These qualifications satisfy the prerequisite to deliver and assess the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment or any assessor skill set from the TAE training package.

We are rated 4.4 / 5 on Facebook Reviews
by our past students!

Advantages of attaining the TAE50116?

There are good reasons to attain the new TAE50116 qualification:

  • Quickly gain a new and up-to-date TAE diploma qualification to maintain your marketability and currency.
  • Gain access to your digital transcripts from the Commonwealth's new national training register using the Unique Student Identifier (USI) scheme. (Only available for post-2014 qualifications). This links all of your student information in one place.
  • We charge a one-off fee to verify your USI, recent experience and current Diploma, and then issue your new Diploma and load your results to the USI database.

How does it work? 

Our streamlined process is based upon National Recognition Principals and the completion of required full unit training. 

To attain this additional Diploma you must hold all six core units for the TAE50116 Diploma of Vocational Education & Training. Required full unit training will vary based upon the elective units that you possess (based on your TAE50211 / TAE50216 Diploma transcript). Full unit training may be required for up to four units, however you may already hold all core units of the TAE50116 resulting in no full unit training being required.  

This pathway is most suited to individuals who only require one or two units of full unit training, most commonly the TAELLN501 Support the Development of Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy Skills unit
