Any organisation that conducts accredited training in the workplace must have trainers qualified with the new Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40116) before 1st April 2019.
This includes if you plan on bringing international staff to Australia on Type 407 Training Visas.
We are currently delivering the full version and upgrades of the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40116) in Brisbane to businesses, in the workplace. We can also deliver to other areas, anywhere in Australia.
The training is done in association with ASC Training in Adelaide, an accredited RTO.
At present, we are delivering the course to hospitality and retail chains, but the training requirement applies to all industries.
Minimum group size is 12, and will comprise 3 weeks face to face classroom training and then workplace visits. Minimum study period, according to ASQA requirements, is 6 months.
There are currently only about 90 RTOs accredited to deliver this award, down from almost 400 with the outdated TAE40110.
With over 150,000 trainers accredited with the current TAE40110, the waiting lists for the new TAE40116 at these 90 RTOs are quite lengthy. Many of the RTOs are smaller, localised organisations, so have little capacity to deliver outside their immediate local area.
This means that many current trainers are going to miss the deadline for re-accreditation on 1st April 2019, so you should start planning now.
The shortage has occurred because ASQA have made it far more difficult for RTOs to get accredited to deliver the new award. RTOs must have a suitably qualified trainer and assessor before they can get accreditation. Additionally, they must satisfy far higher standards before being accredited.
It is also no longer sufficient for trainers to simply have the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment to deliver the new qualification. Trainers must have a minimum of either a Diploma in Vocational Education and Training or a Diploma in Adult Education.
The large majority of trainers don’t have these qualifications, so there is a shortage of trainers to deliver the award.
I am qualified to deliver and assess this training, as I have an Advanced Diploma in Adult Education and a degree in Training and Development. I also have twenty years experience as a trainer and assessor.
