TAE Upgrade/Upskill Programs

Important Update!

Extension of implementation date for new trainer and assessor credential requirements to 1 July 2019

Updated credential requirements for trainers and assessors set out in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015 were due to take effect on 1 April 2019, bringing the requirements in line with 2016 changes to the Training and Education Training Package.

Recent feedback from the vocational education and training (VET) sector showed that trainers and assessors at some RTOs may not have met the new requirements by 1 April 2019, due to the increased number of trainers and assessors accessing gap training. This resulted in some RTOs being unable to keep up with demand to assess and issue relevant documentation by that date.

In response to this feedback, Skills Ministers agreed to delay the introduction of these requirements to 1 July 2019, so that trainers and assessors can continue to train while undertaking gap training for a further three months. The Standards for RTOs have been amended accordingly. Please note that no further extensions to the new credential requirements will be made.

Am I up to date with my Training and Assessment qualification?

To be entitled to work as a trainer in the VET sector a trainer must hold a minimum of the TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment from the TAE10 Training and Education Training Package (or its successor – the TAE40116) (or) be able to demonstrate equivalence of competencies as a minimum. See below section taken from the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) Amendment & www.education.gov.au website. This also means now that before an individual can commence or continue training activities they must complete (or) upgrade their previous training qualification(s) if they currently hold the superseded BSZ40198 (or) TAE40104 qualifications.

Q: What are the requirements from 1 July 2019 for trainers and assessors?

This means that anyone wishing (or) currently delivering training and assessment (formally) must ensure that;

From 1 July 2019, to be compliant with the Standards all trainers and assessors must have:

  • the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, OR
  • the TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, plus:
  • either TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills, or its successor, or TAELLN401A Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills, and
  • either TAEASS502 Design and Develop Assessment Tools, or its successor, or TAEASS502A Design and Develop Assessment Tools, or TAEASS502B Design and Develop Assessment Tools, OR
  • a diploma or higher level qualification in adult education.

Some trainers and assessors who hold the TAE40110 may have completed one or more of the relevant units as electives or as part of ongoing professional development. If trainers and assessors do not currently hold the relevant units, they will need to complete them before 1 July 2019 to meet the new requirements.

In light of its meeting on the 26 October 2011 the NSSC (The National Skills Standards Council) as the successor of the National Quality Council agreed that the Determination of Trainer and Assessor Competencies be amended to state that:Trainers must at a minimum hold TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment or demonstrate equivalence of competencies.

This outcome originated from the AQTF 2010 which stated that the NQC (National Quality Council) has agreed to a transition period of two years to allow RTO’s time to adopt a planned approach to ensuring all trainers and assessors meet the new requirements of Standard 1.4(a) as agreed by the Council on 17 June 2010. “By June 2012 all Trainers & Assessors should hold the TAE40110 to be deemed compliant in VET assessment practice”.
