Training and Education (TAE) training package delivery
If your RTO has had the superseded TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment or TAE50111 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training on scope in the previous 12 months, it must provide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.
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.
All RTOs must meet additional evidence requirements when applying to add any of the following Training and Education (TAE) Training Package products to their registration:
- TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment
- TAE50216 Diploma of Training Design and Development
- TAE50116 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training
- TAESS00011 Assessor Skill Set*
- TAESS00010 Advanced Assessor Skill Set*
* ASQA does not register RTOs for skill sets. RTOs must register for individual units explicitly if they don’t have implicit unit registration courtesy of qualifications on scope.
RTOs must meet and provide the additional evidence requirements when applying to add a unit from the TAE training package to your scope of registration.
Item 2 of ASQA’s evidence requirements requires you to provide evidence relating to the training and assessment strategies for each TAE Training Package products applied for.
This evidence must identify:
- where training and/or assessment is—or will be—provided by a third party, and
- how your RTO ensures training and assessment provided by the third party meets the requirements of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015.
When applying for the TAE Training Package products for the first time you must provide evidence that:
- trainers and assessors are available to the organisation to deliver the training products applied for, and
- these trainers and assessors have the skills and qualifications required by the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015.
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 us if you are unable to meet this limit.
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.
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.
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.
After two years of RTO registration, you may apply to add TAE Training Package products to your RTO’s scope of registration.
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.
