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.
You will notice a very apparent theme running through the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment – particularly in the first few units – is Vocational Education and Training (otherwise referred to as VET).
Understanding the structures and workings of VET is an important part of the Cert IV course.
That said, for those with no intention of training and assessing in the VET sector, while learning this material can be a little frustrating, it is best to just accept that it’s necessary. For the majority of people, working effectively in the VET sector is a key skill component.
Here is a glossary of VET acronyms and terminology which is useful to have on hand throughout this course. Don’t worry, it is certainly not expected that you learn all of these!
Vocational Education and Training is education and training for work.
The VET sector exists to develop the skills and knowledge of learners to help them gain meaningful employment, develop within or change their career. In turn, a skilled workforce provides the basis for industry and enterprise to remain viable and competitive.
A big strength of VET in Australia is that it’s industry-led. The Training Packages that courses come from are developed by industry professionals. The connection between VET and Industry is emphasised in the regulatory system too, mandating that all nationally recognised training is developed in close consultation with industry, and delivered by industry professionals.
After all, who would know better about what to teach people in retail, than the people who are going to be employing graduates?
