Spotlight On assessment validation:
Validating products from the TAE package
Clause 1.25 and Schedule 2 of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations outline these additional requirements.
|Note: units of competency or other skill sets in the Training and Education package are not subject to the requirements of Clause 1.25.|
Putting Clause 1.25 into practice
The following requirements for those planning to add TAE products or those already with TAE products on your scope are in addition to your obligations under clauses 1.9, 1.10 and 1.11.
Planning to add TAE products
If your provider is considering adding TAE products to your scope of registration:
- you must demonstrate completion of an independent validation of the assessment processes for your current scope of registration, and of the tools and systems you plan to use for the TAE qualifications or assessor skill set.
Already have TAE products
If you already have TAE qualifications, or the assessor skill set on your scope of registration, then you:
- must use independent validators when validating the assessment systems for those training products
- may use a non-independent validation team for all other products on your scope of registration.
The role of independent validators
With the exception of undertaking your training product validation, an independent validator must have no association with your provider.
Having trouble finding an independent validator? Consider reaching out to another provider who has the TAE training products on scope. This could also allow you to develop mutually constructive relationships.
Remember to retain evidence and complete records of the validation process, outcomes and any action taken in relation to said outcomes.
