The TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment is not entirely the same as the older TAE40110 Certificate IV TAE.
Yes, 8 of the 10 units are equivalent but don’t be fooled into thinking that a TAE40116 Upgrade can just be a matter of showing your old certificate and showing a resume or job description.
Knowing what is involved first requires knowledge of what has changed. Here, we will go through the differences between TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and TAE40110, and what it means for your Upgrade with Fortress Learning.
Unlike TAE40110 Certificate IV, the TAE40116 requires that you demonstrate vocational competency in your proposed teaching and assessing area. Vocational competency is defined as broad industry knowledge and experience.
Evidence of your current vocational competency. This may include, but is not limited to, holding a relevant unit of competency or qualification, or working as Trainer and Assessor in your chosen vocational industry area.
Details of how you have gained skills and knowledge in Vocational Education through your completion of VET Qualifications or work that you do in a specific industry relevant to Vocational Education.
Documentation can include such items as:
There are two new Core units in TAE40116 that were electives in TAE40110:
Evidence that you are competent in both of these units.
For TAEASS401 you are required to show that you have planned assessment for 5 different Units of Competency (2 for RPL).
Because you already hold the TAEASS401A or TAEASS401B, then we take this into account and you simply need to provide evidence of planning for assessment for 3 different Units of Competency.
Some of the Knowledge Evidence has also changed, so you’re also required to answer some Knowledge Questions.
We provide you with the Templates required to plan for your Assessments, which include:
For TAEASS403, you are required to show that you have planned and participated in 3 assessment validations.
While some of the Knowledge Evidence has also changed, we have incorporated this into the actual performance evidence.
You are required to plan, prepare for and participate and contribute to 3 Assessment Validations.
Not everyone is the same.
The units you completed as part of your TAE40110 will not be the same as the next person. Likewise, the experience you have had since completing your initial Cert IV TAE will also be different.
For that reason, we offer 4 different ways to upgrade from TAE40110 Cert 4 TAE to the TAE40116 Cert IV TAE. Click here for a detailed article we have written.
