Diploma of Vocational Education and Training Information

The current Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015 (Clause 1.23) states words to the effect of (and I paraphrase by inserting the actual outlines from Schedule 1 of the document):

From 1 January 2017, to deliver the TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment or its successor, or any assessor skill set from the TAE10 or TAE or any other Training Package that comes after it), the RTO must ensure all trainers and assessors delivering the training and assessment hold EITHER :
a. TAE50111 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training or its successor or
b. TAE50211 Diploma of Training Design and Development or it successor or
c. A higher level qualification in adult education.

What does this mean for trainers and assessors – particularly those that deliver training and assessment in Training and Assessment?

It means you don’t have to wait to get your Diploma of Vocational Education and Training qualification!

January 2017 will be upon us in no time, and these qualifications are not quick to get (unless you are very experienced and get full RPL with the appropriate evidence).

Now, Volume of Learning is an indicator of how complex a qualification is … and includes the time a candidate would spend on EVERYTHING that would give them competency in the skills included in a qualification – expressed in equivalent full-time years. This is everything including practice, research, reading, discussions, professional development, attending forums, online research, as well as learning in the traditional sense doing courses (whether self-paced or in a classroom)

The AQF (Australian Qualifications Framework) states that a Diploma level qualification should take between 1 and 2 years in Volume of Learning hours.

They average it out to 20 hours a week … so 1-2 years is between 1200 and 2400 hours of anything related to obtaining the skills outlined in the qualification.

That’s a substantial amount of time!

So, even if you believe you will get RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning), or need to actually do the work toward obtaining a Diploma of VET, it is highly advisable to START doing something about it very very soon. That will give you the time you need to get the Diploma of VET under your belt before the required time is upon us all!
