Assessments for this course won’t be intended for the full units but to assess your competency in the added element of TAEASS401 Plan assessment activities and processes and the added performance criteria of TAEASS403 Participate in assessment validation. A “Take home” assessment task will be assigned, which you can submit after the workshop. You will have two weeks to complete the gap assessments; however you may apply for more time if you have a compassionate or compelling reason.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

We understand some learners may have already participated in assessment validation and planning for assessment activities and processes as part of their role. If you believe you can demonstrate current experience and/or relevant qualifications that match the competency requirements of these two units in this course, please consult with your trainer to apply for recognition.

Pre-requisite for this course

As this course is a gap training, it is expected that you already have TAEASS401B and TAEASS403B units from the superseded TAE40110 qualification. If you didn’t complete these units as part of your TAE40110 qualification, please contact the Education Manager of the college on 02 96872072 or send an email to admin@parramattacollege.com.au to discuss your option.

Is this course for me?

You may be thinkging why you should do this course as you may not be even teaching training package qualifications or skill sets. As a general rule, you don’t have to have a TAE qualification if you are delivering only non-accredited components and not involved in assessing competency. However, some employers such as TAFE still wants their trainers to have the TAE qualification. If so, please consult with your employer to understand their requiremens before you enrol.
