What is Vocational Placement?
Is the daunting prospect of vocational placement on your mind?
The good news is, when you ask the right questions and carefully choose your TAE provider, vocational placement should not be on your mind at all!
All Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) are not created equal, and the requirement for vocational placement is a big reason why.
What is vocational placement?
Simply put, vocational placement is the requirement for a student who is completing a course to undertake practical training and gain experience in a real-life workplace.
Undertaking vocational placement for the TAE eats into your valuable time and can also be difficult to organise. Can you imagine trying to organise your own vocational placement in a busy RTO on any given day, let alone in a COVID 19- affected area right now?
If yes, why are these requirements not covered in your TAE40116 in-house resources?
As we briefly mentioned before, we have designed and created a range of resources and all-encompassing assessment tasks to ensure our students are not required to undertake vocational placement.
So what does that mean? To put it simply, our academic team has ensured that our students have the resources they need at their fingertips. Some examples include:
- One-day assessment workshops which cover the stringent requirements of the TAEASS402 Assess Competence unit (included in course fees)
- Optional delivery workshops to assist students who want or need assistance with the requirement to deliver three major presentations (additional fees apply)
- Access to other learners via our face-to-face classes or via our Facebook Student Community Group
We hope all your questions surrounding vocational placement have been answered and you feel confident in Plenty Training as an innovative and student orientated provider. As a soon-to-be trainer and assessor you need to be armed with the right knowledge to make the best decisions for your upcoming study journey.
