If you are passionate about sharing your industry skills and knowledge with the next generation, you should think about becoming a qualified trainer and assessor!

A qualification in Training and Assessment (TAE) will provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to deliver training and assessment programs in the Australian Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector – including TAFEs and private Registered Training Organisations (RTOs), as well as secondary colleges with vocational programs.

TAE qualifications will enable you to develop the skills and knowledge you need to understand the VET sector, and design learning tasks to meet the needs of learners and enterprises, as well as deliver training, and plan and conduct assessments.

Teachers in Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Australia require currency and competency in their industry area as well as current Training and Assessment qualifications as deemed by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). This is currently TAE40116 – Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, or its equivalent. You may also hold a higher qualification in adult education and training.

Depending on your role, the full TAE40116 qualification may not be required and you might find that a skill set may be more appropriate. Skill sets may be more suitable if you are delivering and assessing non-accredited training, often in an enterprise environment.

Please note you will need to enrol in both TAE40116 and the Enterprise Trainer-Presenting Skill Set to complete the qualification.

Do you have TAE40110? Continue below for information and to apply for the TAE40116 (upgrade)

The TAE Upgrade provides a conversion of the superseded qualification TAE40110 to the current TAE40116. The tuition fee for the upgrade is $1250.

To enrol in this qualification you must be able to demonstrate vocational competency and currency in your proposed teaching and assessing area. Vocational competency is defined as broad industry knowledge and experience and may include, but is not limited to, holding a relevant unit of competency or qualification in that area.

The Upgrade pathway may be used only if you already hold TAE40110 and are conducting training and/or assessment in the workplace or for an RTO.
