TAE40116 Now Available

TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment


The new TAE Cert IV was released on 6 April 2016 and now we have 9 core units and one elective.

Every trainer/assessor is going to need to upgrade their TAE40110, although we have a bit of time to do so. Right now there are no RTOs with scope for the new qualification.

Application for scope is not simple. ASQA is using this opportunity to scrutinise RTOs currently delivering TAE40110 and applying for scope for TAE40116. This is because of the fully justified concern about the quality of training and assessment delivered by some RTOs.

It’s quite true that TAE40110 has been delivered in some cases in less than a week and for less than $300. Hopefully this scrutiny will correct the problem. However, the audit process will certainly take ASQA some time. ASQA has stated that RTOs should allow 6 months for their application but I think it will take longer. Currently there are 702 RTOs with scope for TAE40110. If they all apply for new scope for TAE40116 it’s going to take a lot longer than 6 months for ASQA to get through them all.

In the case of an application for scope for TAE40116, the following learning and assessment resources must be submitted:
• TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools
• TAEASS401 Plan assessment activities and processes
• TAEASS402 Assess competence
• TAEASS403 Participate in assessment validation

For this reason, I have devoted 7 days a week since the qualification was endorsed in order to develop the four Assessment Sector units needed to apply for scope.
There’s no need to develop the balance of the Cert IV units just yet, as it will take a while before RTO’s have scope to deliver them.

TAE50116 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training

TAE40116 now requires assessors of the units to hold TAE50116 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training or TAE50111 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training or be able to demonstrate equivalence.

What this means is that demand for TAE50116 will increase. So this is my next project.

ASQA requires RTOs to submit the following resources in order to apply for scope for the following TAE Diplomas:

TAE50116 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training

• TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools
• TAEASS501 Provide advanced assessment practice

TAE50216 Diploma of Training Design and Development

• TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools
• TAEDES501 Design and develop learning strategies

I’ve already developed TAEASS502, so the next step is to develop the two other units needed to apply for scope for the Diplomas.

BSB50615 Diploma of HR Management


Until the new TAE was endorsed, this was my current project, which I’ve had to put on hold. The qualification won’t appear on my web site until all of the units are developed.

So far I have developed:
• BSBHRM501 Manage human resource services
• BSBHRM506 Manage recruitment selection and induction processes
• BSBHRM512 Develop and manage performance management processes
