When you enter the VET sector as a trainer, you discover the many facets of the industry and refine your skills. You will set new goals in your chosen profession as a trainer and eventually set out to grow to the next level or have your current competence recognised. This is where the TAE50116 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training (Diploma of VET) and the TAE50216 Diploma of Training Design and Development (Diploma of TDD) will help you achieve this.
Often people ask what is a difference between the two qualifications.
The TAE50116 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training focuses on how you influence and lead the delivery of training and assessment within Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) in the vocational education and training (VET) sector. The diploma will help you expand your role to leading and directing other trainers and assessors while sharing your insight. You will play a key role in designing learning and assessment strategies within the RTO.
The TAE50216 Diploma of Training Design and Development is for those people in the industry who will focus on developing training materials. The core of their role involves analysing training needs, designing training solutions and products to meet workplace capability requirements. This then extends further into evaluating the effectiveness of training programs as part of a continuous improvement process. You will provide guidance and advice to trainers and assessors, promoting innovative practices and incorporating these into training and assessment programs and products.
The course works best for those trainers who already have their TAE40116 (or Currency in TAE40110) and have current or recent experience in the VET sector as a trainer and assessor, and now are looking to extend their expertise.
The training takes into account what you are currently undertaking in your practice as a VET professional and includes where possible your portfolio from your current workplace. Where gaps exist, your training will help you to gain confidence a become a VET professional with a strategic focus. You will be taken through the aspects of compliance in all areas of Design strategy, Delivery Assessment strategic leadership, Validation & Continuous Improvement, Professional practice leadership and Language Literacy and numeracy strategy.
There is significant overlapping in the packaging rules for Diploma of VET and Diploma of TDD. You can choose your elective units in such a way that it may allow you to get a Double Diploma by completing one extra unit (11 units in total).
