There’s a lot of mixed advice out there about upgrading your TAE40110 to meet the new trainer and assessor credential requirements which came in on 1st July 2019. We have prepared this easy to follow information to help answer these questions:
Let’s keep this as plain English as possible.
We’ve detailed these options below.
This could be considered the “simplest” way to meet the minimum requirements. To do it this way, go through all of your existing certificates and transcripts for TAE (including the transcript that came with your TAE40110) and answer these questions:
1. Do I already hold either of the following units?
2. Do I already hold one of the following?
What are all the letters at the end? What’s the difference between TAEASS502, 502A and 502B, and TAELLN401A and 411?
The As and Bs at the end of the codes signify older units. The new units don’t have any letter on the end. You can only do the new unit versions without any letter on the end now.
Doing it this way will get you both TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills and TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools. It also updates two other superseded units and gives you the latest versions of everything, and a fresh new qualification, all together.
It depends on your motivations. The below comparison chart compares the most common factors people consider when making a decision (click to download as a PDF).
For an experienced trainer and assessor, we have the following guideline. Although you may take less time it’s better to over-estimate rather than give false hope.
Remember this is time purely for completing the assessment items as an experienced VET assessor and doesn’t take into account time for learning how to design and develop assessment tools.
TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools is the bulk of the work and it requires the full, top-down, start to finish design of three sets of assessment tools (not just rejigging existing ones). For an experienced designer we have found one assessment tool might take the following timeframe to develop (assuming a basic unit around AQF level 2 – 4, add more if designing for Diplomas and beyond):
As there are three units to develop assessment tools for, it’s 3 x 15 so 45 hours of development work in the assessments.
TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills can really range depending on how you apply the unit but here’s an example:
This is to be applied to two learners so you’re looking at around 7 hours lead in time, then however long it takes to support the learner with their LLN needs.
