Updates to trainer and assessor credential requirements explained
The TAE Training Package was updated in April 2016, with the core units ‘Design and develop assessment tools’ and ‘Address adult language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) skills’ being added to the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. The core units of the Assessor Skill Set were updated to include the unit ‘Design and develop assessment tools’.
To ensure the VET workforce has appropriate skills in designing and developing assessment tools and identifying and evaluating LLN requirements, Skills Ministers have agreed to update the Standards to align with the changes to the TAE Training Package.
Trainers and assessors who do not hold the relevant units will have until 1 April 2019 to meet the new credential requirements.
As an approved provider of the new TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, Tamworth Community College has developed a clear and practical Recognition of Prior Learning Process for trainers and assessors to upgrade their credentials.
