The National Quality Council (NQC) endorsed the TAE10 Training and Education Training Package on 12 May 2010. The new Training Package was accredited by the NSW Vocational Education and Training Accreditation Board (VETAB) on 7 June 2010.
The new Training Package includes the revised TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment which replaces the TAA40104 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment as the qualification required by all trainers and assessors in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector by 17 June 2012.
In NSW the 12-month transition period for the implementation of the new Training Package, commences on 7 June 2010. This means that RTOs can continue to enrol students into the TAA40104 qualification until 6 June 2011.
TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment
The TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment reflects the roles of individuals delivering training and assessment services in the VET sector. The revision process has focussed on presenting shorter, simplified, more user-friendly units which are no less comprehensive than the previous qualifications. The TAE40110 qualification comprises a total of 10 units of competency – 7 core units plus 3 elective units.
The Industry Skills Council, Innovation and Business Skills Australia (IBSA), has developed a Transition Guide which provides guidance on best practice delivery and assessment.
As the registering body, NSW VETAB has been liaising with IBSA in relation to the transition arrangements and has participated in all consultative forums in order to ensure that training package requirements will be met by RTOs and to support RTOs in the transition process.
