VAC 7.7

VET accredited courses identify exit points from the course which provide for vocational or educational outcomes where applicable.

Where an early ‘exit point’ provides for a vocational or educational outcome, you must identify this in the course structure at Section B: 5.1. Exit points are also referred to as skill sets. Students exiting at this point receive a Statement of Attainment for the unit/s of competency they have successfully completed.

An example of a skill set is the TAESS00011 Assessor Skill Set. This identified skill set comprises the following units:

  • TAEASS401 Plan assessment activities and processes
  • TAEASS402 Assess competence
  • TAEASS403 Participate in assessment validation
  • TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools.

These units are included in the bank of nine core units within the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. This qualification includes the following information regarding the skill set in the ‘Description’ field:
‘This qualification (or the skill sets derived from units of competency within it) is also suitable preparation for those engaged in the delivery of training and assessment of competence in a workplace context, as a component of a structured VET program’.
