On 19 April 2017, the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) will host a webcast to provide information and clarification on how ASQA is considering applications for the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
The webcast will discuss ASQA’s approach to assessing applications for TAE40116 and what RTOs need to do when preparing their applications.
About the TAE40116
In April 2016, the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) announced the introduction of an updated Training and Education (TAE) Training Package, including a new Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40116).
The AISC set an 18-month transition period to allow providers to fully develop their strategies for training and assessment, lodge their applications, and transition students to the new qualification.
The transition period ends on 5 October 2017. To date, ASQA has received just over 60 applications to add the new qualification to scope.
About applications for the TAE40116
It is critical that TAE training products are delivered to the highest levels of quality, so that trainers and assessors in the VET sector have all the skills and knowledge they need.
As such, ASQA requires RTOs to submit additional evidence when applying for TAE qualifications.
To help training providers take up this important market opportunity, ASQA is hosting a webcast to provide information and clarification on the TAE application process.
The webcast will focus on key areas where some applicants are having trouble meeting the required standard and how you can complete a quality application.
