Change RTO scope | TAE Training Package evidence
It is critical that training products from a Training and Education (TAE) Training Package are delivered to the highest levels of quality, so that trainers and assessors hold all the skills and knowledge required.
Training products that make up this package underpin the quality of VET delivery as graduates in these qualifications are responsible for training much of the Australian workforce.
TAE training products with additional evidence requirements
Only registered training organisations (RTOs) that have been registered for 2 years or more can apply to add the following training products from the TAE Training Package:
- TAE40122 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment
- TAE50122 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training
- TAE80316 Graduate Certificate in Digital Education
- TAESS00019 Assessor Skill Set

Your assessment systems’ validation should cover the assessment system:

If you have less than 5 qualifications on scope, you’ll need to provide assessment validation for all of your training products.
You also need to provide evidence of the training and assessment strategies that informed your training and assessment practice, for the previous 12 months.

This needs to include the:
