Accellier is the provider of choice for thousands of people and hundreds of organisations in Australia and around the world. Under our former name SAVE Training, we built a solid foundation on which Accellier now stands, embodying almost 10 years of service to Australia’s Tertiary and Vocational Education Sector. As a testament to this, since our inception in 2010 we have spent only a few thousand dollars on advertising. Our clients are almost entirely referred from our happy graduates and business customers.
Accellier is the trading name of SAVE Training Pty Ltd and is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO 32395) that offers a range of nationally recognised courses in education and business Australia wide through our online and face to face courses.
Our mission is to enhance people’s value through excellence in service and learning outcomes.
If you want to gain employment as a Trainer and Assessor at any of the following, the answer is yes:
The legislation that requires people to have a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment is the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015.
In simplified terms it says in Clause 1.13, 1.14 and 1.15 that an RTO’s training and assessment can only be delivered by a person who has:
If your qualification’s focus is primarily on Adult Education, you venture into the murky waters of Item 3, Schedule 1.
In Clause 1.14 of those standards mentioned above, they refer to people being allowed to teach in a Registered Training Organisation, if they have “the credential specified in Item 2 or Item 3 of Schedule 1.”
Decoding that translates to “you must have a Cert IV in Training and Assessment OR a diploma or higher level qualification in adult education.”
ASQA are the ones who regulate the vocational education sector, including making sure trainers have the right qualifications for the job. So this is an important bit of information to go off.
They give examples such as:
If your higher level qualification is not one of the above, it may come down to the opinion of the ASQA auditor, should your staff file ever be reviewed at an audit.
If you’re considering making a career out of being a vocational education teacher, it makes sense to go and do the TAE40116 Cert IV in Training and Assessment, regardless of your qualifications and experience. It makes you more desirable as an employee and it’s easier for the institution you teach for to demonstrate you meet the requirements of those standards mentioned above.
There are some situations where you may be able to get away with a subset of units from the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, called a Skill Set. We address that situation in this article.
