When was the new training package endorsed?
It was endorsed on the 12th May 2010.
Why was the TAE10 training package introduced?
The NVR (or AQTF depending on your State) is strongly dedicated to a policy of continuous improvement. This means that, in order to maintain excellence, training standards must be reviewed on a regular basis, and the contents altered and improved to meet new challenges in the workplace.
What does "endorsed" mean?
Endorsed is the term used when a training package has been "approved".
When a new Training Package is endorsed, it supersedes the previous one.
What do the codes refer to?
The code TAE10 refers to the whole training package.
The "10" refers to the year 2010, the year of endorsement.
What is the difference between TAA40 the TAE10?
There is very little difference between the two qualifications. According to IBSA: "these qualifications are equivalent in broad content and outcomes".
What has changed?
Quite simply the new TAE10 training package has replaced the previous training package (TAA04) governing all aspects of vocational training.
Fundamental differences between the two qualifications.
Why are there less units?
A lot of repetition has been removed, and the content has been reorganised a little.
Three TAA04 units were deleted, and their content was included within other units in the package. So, it LOOKS less, but it is really the same material reorganised!
There is direct mapping for the core and common elective units to TAE. To find out more about our TAE Upgrade process please click the banner
If I completed units in TAA04, do I get any credits for that with TAE10?
Yes; if the units directly map across. Some do, and some don't. Please discuss your options with our friendly staff.
If you have already completed some of the TAA04 units, then the credits will depend on what units you completed.
So what happens to all the previously qualified trainers and their student's qualifications? Are all the previous certificates they issued no longer valid?
All previous nationally recognised qualifications remain valid qualifications. However, if you are delivering nationally recognised courses you must upgrade to the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment before the 1st of July 2013.
Safecity offers a streamlined and ethical online TAA to TAE upgrade and a dedicated TAE40110 upgrade website. You can start your upgrade process with us by simply E-mailing us a copy of your TAA40104 certificate and a list of of the elective units you completed for a free review.
Will I be restricted in delivering training if I don't have the most recent qualification?
From the 1st of July 2013, you must hold the
TAE40110 in order to deliver nationally
How do I keep my skills current? Is simply teaching enough?
Simply teaching and / or assessing is not enough to maintain current skills and knowledge.
