Why update to the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment?

1. Compliance. The revised Standards for RTOs 2015 have changed the minimum qualifications required of trainers and assessors within the vocational education and training sector from 1 July 2019:

Note: If you hold a higher level qualification in adult education you should contact ASQA directly to ensure that your qualification will meet industry standards.

2. Competitive advantage! Gain a competitive advantage by possessing the most current training and assessment qualification.

3. Prepare! Remember when the TAA40104 was replaced by the TAE40110 back in 2010? It wasn’t long before employers became reluctant to accept trainers with the superseded qualification. Be prepared for the inevitable!

4. Professionalism! Holding the most current TAE40116 qualification shows your commitment to ongoing professional development and ensures you remain at the forefront of the industry.

In summary:

  • Unit TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools and TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills have been added as new core (mandatory) units.
  • Unit TAEASS401B is superseded by TAEASS401 Plan assessment activities and processes. These units are not equivalent, and the new unit requires evidence of having planned and organised five assessments including two RPL assessments.
  • Unit TAEASS403B is superseded by TAEASS403 Participate in assessment validation. These units are not equivalent, and the new unit requires participation in three validation sessions.

2. Is it compulsory to update to the TAE40116?  No, it is not compulsory to update to the TAE40116. The TAE40110 plus the units TAEASS502 and TAELLN411 is still a valid qualification to work as a trainer and assessor. However, by updating to the latest qualification you will be setting yourself apart from your peers, and showing a commitment to continual professional development that is valued so highly in training and assessment roles.  Also, you may recall when the TAA40104 was replaced by the TAE40110 back in 2010, it wasn’t long before employers became reluctant to accept trainers with the superseded qualification.  Be prepared for the inevitable!

3. How long do I have to update to the TAE40116 once enrolled?  Once we have confirmed your eligibility, you have six months from the enrolment date to complete the update process.

Assessment

Discover the assessment requirements for each of the units included in the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training & Assessment course. The resources provided to students will vary depending on their selected pathway. Find out how your selected pathway compares:

Gap training for this unit involves students updating their skills in the area of planning and organising assessment including contextualising and adjusting the assessment process and instruments ready to carry this out.

We ensure you understand the latest expectations and requirements for assessment tools and processes under the Standards for RTOs 2015.

You will need to plan and adjust the assessment process and tools on five different occasions, each occasion for a different and complete unit of competency.

NOTE: We provide students with some scenarios they can use for this if they do not currently plan and contextualise assessment against five different units of competency in their current role

Students enrolled in the iClass+ course pathway will complete their five assessment plans in class time over the two-day iClass+. Students who only attend one-day will not have the opportunity to complete all five plans.

Gap training for this unit involves students updating their validation skills by participating in at least three validation sessions where they will validate assessment tools and processes to ensure they meet the latest standards required by RTO’s.

Please be aware of the below interaction requirements for Distance+ course students:

  • Organise at least one other person to participate in three validation sessions if you do not already participate in these sessions within your current role  

Note: We can provide you with assessment tools and validation templates to use if you do not have your own to use for these validations.

Students enrolled in the iClass+ course pathway will complete their three validation sessions in class time over the two-day iClass+. Students who only attend one-day will not have the opportunity to complete all three sessions.

As part of this unit students need to understand and use the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) to identify and assist with LLN challenges. Students will analyse the LLN requirements and levels for training specifications, the levels of real vocational learners, adapt and contextualise resources to suit the LLN levels of your learners and deliver the training to those real vocational learners.

Please be aware of the below interaction requirements for Distance+ course students:

  • Access to two real vocational learners
  • Presentations must be recorded and submitted for assessment

Students enrolled in the iClass+ course pathway will complete their presentation in class time and are not required to submit a recording.

Note: A ‘real vocational learner’ is defined as a learner undertaking training required for their employment and directly related to the specific skills needed for that employment or enrolled with an RTO.

As part of this unit students will design and develop three assessment tools, each tool must cover an entire unit of competency.  Once you have developed your tools you will validate and trial these tools, making any required adjustments.

Please be aware of the below interaction requirements for Distance+ course students:

  • Access to one or more individuals to hold a meeting (can be friends, colleagues or fellow students)
  • Meeting must be recorded and submitted for assessment

Students enrolled in the iClass+ course pathway will complete their meeting in class time and are not required to submit a recording.

Duration: Students undertaking training have six months from their enrolment date to complete their studies and submit all assessment workbooks for this course. RPL candidates have six months from their enrolment date to complete their RPL interview and submit all required evidence. (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. The time frame can vary depending on the number of assessment submissions being received at any given time.

Workload: Assessment candidates typically take between one and 12 hours to complete the credit transfer / RPL gap assessment workbooks, dependent upon the exact number of units for which full or partial RPL is required, and the nature of the gap knowledge and evidence that is required.
