Our recommendations about the TAE50111 Units of Competency

View this professional meeting of training professionals
talking about the future of training and online delivery

  • We recommend that you study the TAE50111 units of competency electives in the order of Design, then Delivery, then Assessment.  This seems to be a more logical approach to studying since it closely matches the natural process of training in the workplace.
  • Consider adding additional elective units to your Diploma of Vocational Education and Training content.  You are not restricted to just 10 units of competency–they are the minimum requirement.  Whilst you will be required to make an additional payment (and remember that we are extremely affordable), the investment you make could well be a powerful asset to your future career.  For example, if you are already competent in E-learning and online course delivery modes, consider asking for RPL for the *TAEDEL501A Facilitate e-learning.  Interest in E-learning, online courses and open learning is growing at a phenomenal rate.  There is little doubt that the online mode of delivery will eventually match or even surpass the more restrictive and inaccessible face-to-face classroom–this is particularly true for the vocational training sector.

Additional options for selecting TAE50111 Units of Competency electives 

The Diploma of Vocational Education and Training qualification was designed to be as flexible and as inclusive as possible.  

Therefore, professional trainers who have specific workplace requirements or career needs, are able to choose up to 2 electives from another training package: for example the Business Services Training Package.

The electives you choose must:

  • be from a currently endorsed Training Package or accredited course at the time the
    certificate is issued by Safecity; and
  • be relevant to the work outcome, local industry requirements and qualification level (and generally this is not just because it is the topic of your training!!!!); and
  • be from a qualification or course at a Diploma level or above; and
  • contribute towards the vocational outcome of the program.


The importance of selecting the right TAE50111 units of competency elective when you enrol

The TAE50111 Units of Competency elective you choose for your course will greatly increase or diminish the effectiveness and value of your Diploma qualification.

Prospective employers will closely scrutinise the units of competency that you have achieved to make sure they match their job descriptors.

When choosing your electives take into consideration your current employment or interests as well as any possible future opportunities that may occur or that you desire.

For example, if you are currently involved in researching vocational training, assessing training, and closely working and cooperating and partnering with community groups, you would choose all the electives from the  “Research” “Assessment” and “Industry and community relations” clusters a total of 5 elective units.
