New TAE40116 Training and Assessment qualification which replaces TAE40110 has been talked about in the industry for the last 18 months. The industry feedback has made recommendations as to what needs to be improved and changed to make the qualification more relevant to the training needs of the workplace.
The details of this have now been released on traning.gov.au and Auctus has now applied to extend their scope of registration to include the new TAE40116.
The scrutiny for the Certificate IV Training and Assessment qualification is more rigid than in the past to improve the profile of the qualification in the industry. Some of the key changes identified in the information provided on training.gov.au are as follows: the language literacy and numeracy becoming a core component of the qualification, the development of assessment tools, delivery of training in front of a minimum group of learners for group training, and minimum requirements for sufficiency of competency demonstration in some of the units.
As this is a critical qualification to providing training and assessment to various industries the expectations around integrity of delivery and risk it presents have been raised.
In addition to the changes to receive the qualification, the trainers and assessors delivering this qualification will need to hold a Diploma of Training and Assessment.
Only a few training providers has been approved at this stage to deliver TAE40116. There is no indication how long this process might take, as the scrutiny for this qualification is more rigid than in the past to improve the profile of the qualification in the industry.
