Our next course starts 12th February 2024
Enrolments now open!
What’s been happening with the TAE Certificate IV?
- In the new TAE40122 there are 12 units (not 10 as in the TAE40116)
- TAE40116 is equivalent to TAE40122, but the individual units are not equivalent.
- Therefore TAE40116 units cannot be credit transferred to TAE40122, but TAE40116 is still compliant
- TAE40110 qualification holders can only credit transfer and upgrade to TAE40116 until December 2024
- You cannot credit transfer from TAE40110 to TAE40122
- MHRC are no longer offering TAE40116 courses or UoC and we recommend trainers and assessors contact other RTO’s still running this course asap.
Course Overview for TAE40122
Who is the program for?
The program is for anyone who:
- aspires to train and assess within the Vocational Education Training (VET) sector and deliver and assess against nationally recognised qualifications, skillsets or units of competency
- is required as part of their job description or for compliance reasons within their workplace or on a client site.
- delivers non-accredited training and would like to elevate their skills within a nationally recognised framework for trainers and assessors
- delivers VET in Schools programs
- would like to set up their own Registered Training Organisation (RTO)
- is partnering with an RTO and needs additional skillset to complement this arrangement and further their knowledge of the VET sector and compliance requirements under the Standards for RTOs 2015
- wishes to set up a nationally accredited program within the VET sector
Those entering this program must be able to demonstrate vocational competency in their proposed teaching and assessing area. Vocational competency is defined as broad industry knowledge and experience, and may include, but is not limited to, holding a relevant unit of competency or qualification.
It is recommended that you have good computer skills, including ability to research on the internet and basic keyboard skills to complete assessment templates. You will also be working in an online environment from time to time.
For those who do not have good computer skills a foundation course is recommended prior to commencement. These courses are available via Murray House Resource Centre and are subject to minimum numbers. Please discuss this with us prior to enrolling in this qualification.
Australian Qualification Framework – learning outcomes criteria
Pre-course entry assessment
Before you attend the program, you will be asked to complete a ‘pre-course entry assessment. This is to provide evidence that you are capable of the level of comprehension and computer skills needed to successfully complete the course. Students who cannot complete this short assessment are advise to enrol in a computer/literacy short course, and then apply again when they are in a stronger position to meet the needs of the complexity of the learning outcomes required according to the Australian Qualification Framework – Level 4 (as above).
A trainer and assessor will contact you to have a discussion about your learning outcomes, training needs, special requirements and your career aspirations so that you get what you want from your studies. You will be guided to explore options that suit your individual requirements within the program and to ensure that the program is suitable for you.
You will also be asked to provide a resume or job description so that the trainer and assessor can assess your prior knowledge and existing skill set.
How is the program delivered?
The program is delivered over 15 days of face to face workshops with a highly qualified trainer and assessor who will align the program to your required outcomes. This is delivered face to face in the classroom broken down in to 3 clusters, each cluster running for 5 days consecutively:
CLUSTER 1 – DESIGN (5 days) 12th – 16th February 2024
CLUSTER 2 – DELIVERY (5 days) 18th – 22nd March 2024
CLUSTER 3 – ASSESSMENT (5 days) 29th April – 3rd May 2024
We offer student support on a request basis with a Trainer & Assessor to help guide you through any obstacles you may be facing with the assessments. Students are also encouraged to use any of our available classroom/student spaces to continue to work independently away from work or home in a quiet space if needed. Bookings are available through: [email protected]
How will you be assessed?
Assessment is competency based and evidence based, so you will be required to demonstrate evidence of your ability to perform the tasks required and the knowledge required to complete the units of competency.
You will be required to complete a series of structured activities that are relevant to the VET sector and reflect current industry practice. The evidence that you produce will be contextualised for your own workplace, or a workplace of your choice.
You will be directly observed by your assessor performing tasks that are required by a trainer and assessor, such as delivering training sessions, assessing learners, participating in validation sessions conducted by the Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
Your knowledge will be assessed by:
- Knowledge Questions
- Structured Activities
How long will it take to complete?
The group training sessions and validation sessions will be completed and observed by your assessor during the course of the 15 days. You will be required to complete structured activities to demonstrate your skills which includes the design of assessment plans and assessment tools and assessing individuals against nationally recognised units of competency.
You will commence these activities during the training but will not have sufficient time during this period to complete all the requirements. You will be required to continue with your own study time after the delivery in the face to face workshops and to complete your assessment requirements and knowledge questions over the 12 months of your enrolment period. You will be provided with access to learning resources and are encouraged to continue to collaborate with your group and engage with the learning materials from the workshops.
Depending upon your prior knowledge this may take you between 600 – 2400 hours to complete in full as recommended by the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) for a Certificate IV qualification. Experienced people with good computer skills may achieve competency in a shorter period of time.
Your learning will continue after the workshops by engaging in the learning resources, independent research and study.
