Why upgrade to the new TAE40116

Face to Face 1day - $395 Face to Face 2day - $790 Online/eLearning $395

Note: Please be aware all courses require blended learning and completion times will depend on the learners background, experience and TAE40110 units held. By attending our upgrade workshops does not guarantee completion.

Rather than complete one or two units to meet the updates to trainer and assessor credential requirements to come into effect from April 2019, announced by the Commonwealth Government on July 6, 2017, the TAE Training Academy has developed an upgrade program that allows trainers to complete all necessary requirements with a clustered approach to assessment.

This approach builds on trainers current knowledge and ensures trainers will complete all of the requirements in one clustered assessment and walk away with the NEW TAE40116.

By upgrading to the new TAE40116, trainers will likely be better equipped for any future legislative changes to training and assessment requirements.

Course Details

This TAE upgrade course is designed for educators to transition their existing TAE40110 to the new TAE40116 qualification and ensure TAE currency is maintained.

This course includes all of the mandatory requirements to go from the older TAE40110 to the new TAE40116 and includes the following units:

TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills
TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools
TAEASS401 Plan assessment activities and processes
TAEASS403 Participate in assessment validation

Note: If trainers hold any of the above units or their equivalent they will be eligible for credit transfer.

There is a new entry requirement for TAE40116. Trainers entering this upgrade program must be able to demonstrate vocational competency in their proposed teaching and assessing area.

All trainers as part of the TAE40116 upgrade are required to meet the TAE Training Academy's entry requirements and this includes providing a copy of their current Certificate IV in Training and Assessment TAE40110 and record of results for credit transfer purposes as well as current CV.


Updates to trainer and assessor credential requirements to come into effect from April 2019

6 July 2017

The Hon. Karen Andrews MP, Assistant Minister for Vocational Education and Skills, has released an amendment to the training and assessment credential requirements in the Standards for RTOs 2015. These have been updated to align with the Training and Education (TAE) Training Package.

The TAE Training Package was updated in April 2016, with the core units ‘Design and develop assessment tools’ and ‘Address adult language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) skills’ being added to the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. The core units of the Assessor Skill Set were updated to include the unit ‘Design and develop assessment tools’.

To ensure the VET workforce has appropriate skills in designing and developing assessment tools and identifying and evaluating LLN requirements, Skills Ministers have agreed to update the Standards to align with the changes to the TAE Training Package.

Skills Ministers agreed that trainers and assessors who do not hold the relevant units will have until 1 April 2019 to meet the new credential requirements.
