There is no mandated structured work placement in the Training Package. However, students must gather evidence over time in a real VET environment to demonstrate the student’s consistent performance in conditions reflective of this environment. Where the student does not have a VET environment, the university will support the student to find a suitable VET environment in which they can embed and reflect the range of activities and assessment required for this qualification. This will be managed through the VET work placement procedure.

Entry requirements (year 12)

Entry requirements (non year 12)

The TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment provides learners with the skills and knowledge to train and assess within the VET system, but it does not provide them with an area of vocational expertise in which to train or assess. The requirement for entry into the TAE40116 qualification stipulates that applicants must demonstrate vocational competency in their proposed training and assessing area. Vocational competency is defined as ‘broad industry knowledge and experience, and may include, but is not limited to, holding a relevant unit of competency or qualification’. The Pre Training Review which includes a literacy and numeracy review, will determine whether each applicant satisfies this program entry requirement.

For information in relation to the University and students rights and responsibilities please refer to the VET Information Guide.

Applicants need to demonstrate the literacy and numeracy skills required to undertake this course through a test as part of the application process. The test will be conducted through Federation College prior to commencement of training. Feedback will be provided to the applicant on their results and types of support, if necessary, available to them.
