To help RTOs prepare for and implement revised training packages, the student transition period for training products endorsed by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) between September 2015 and March 2016 has been extended.
RTOs will now have 18 months instead of 12 months from the date the superseding training product was released on the National Register (training.gov.au) to transition students to the updated training package qualifications or complete their studies and issue the appropriate certification.
The revised TAE Training Package was endorsed by the AISC on 18 February 2016 and was released on 6 April 2016. As such, the transition period for Training and Education (TAE) Training Package products has been extended from 12 months to 18 months. The transition period applies from the date the training products were released on training.gov.au. The transition period for TAE training package products therefore ends on 5 October 2017.
The period to transition to the TAE-Training and Education Training Package (Release 2.0) has been extended from 12 months to 18 months. The transition period applies from the date the training products were released on training.gov.au. The revised TAE Training Package was endorsed by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) on 18 February 2016 and was released on 6 April 2016.
As such, the transition period for TAE Training Package products ends on 5 October 2017.
RTOs that have the relevant superseded training products on scope of registration and are transitioning to the new, non-equivalent training products are required to meet the additional evidence requirements outlined on ASQA’s website.
Where TAE Training package units of competency are named core or elective units in a qualification from other training packages, RTOs are not required to independently validate the TAE units of competency when validating the qualification.
The Standards for RTOs require to deliver any AQF qualification or assessor skill set from the TAE training package, the RTO must have undergone an independent validation.
RTOs can apply to add the TAE Training Package products to their scope of registration when they have not issued AQF qualifications or statements of attainments in the last six months.
However, the change to scope application must include an explanation of the reason why the RTO is unable to supply the details of the issuance of any AQF qualifications or statements of attainment in the last six months and the application must still include all the remaining evidence outlined on ASQA’s website.
The revised asqanet has an upload limit of 10MB per file. You will need to break up files that exceed this limit into multiple files. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are unable to meet this limit.
Applicants must provide evidence that all resources are available to deliver the training products for which they have applied. The resources used must comply with all specific requirements of the TAE Training Package. Any gaps in the resources purchased must be addressed. Applicants must provide all resources—whether developed in-house or commercially purchased—for any of the requested units of competency as outlined in item 3 of the evidence requirements.
If your RTO has had the superseded TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment or TAE50111 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training on scope in the previous 12 months, it must provide evidence of independent validation of these TAE Training Package products.
