Course Overview

This course is for:

  • Trainers and assessors who deliver non accredited training
  • Trainers and assessors who work with other trainers in delivering nationally recognised training (for example under supervision)
  • Enterprise trainers and assessors working in an enterprise RTO or in an enterprise that works together with an RTO in an auspicing arrangement (i.e. a business with an internal RTO or one that has a partnership with an external RTO).

The TAESS00015 Enterprise Trainer and Assessor Skill Set is a minimum qualification required for those seeking to work as trainers at Registered Training Organisations (RTOs), TAFEs and private training organisations. This skill set is designed to provide the necessary skills and knowledge for people training under supervision in the VET sector, who work mainly in classroom situations.

The course is based on (and can provide credit towards) the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.

Course Outline

This Skill Set will enable you to:

  • Develop training sessions for delivery in a range of workplace and formal learning contexts. This includes individual and group instruction, planning the presentation and reviewing the presentation
  • Assess the competence of candidates using different assessment pathways
  • Participate in the assessment validation process
  • These competencies are completed in the context of a competency-based assessment system.

Course Structure:

There are four online modules to complete. Two of the modules require additional practical assessments to be conducted in your workplace: TAEASS402 is to be completed under the supervision of a qualified assessor (in your workplace) and TAEASS403 is to be conducted with an alternate audience such as work colleagues. For those unable to undertake assessments in the workplace, these elements may be completed with our qualified assessors by attending one of our Virtual Classrooms.

How does this course differ from the Certificate IV Training and Assessment (TAE)?

All four units in this skill set are included in the ten units required in the full Certificate IV. So once complete, you’re almost halfway to getting the full qualification. This course can stand alone or be used as a gateway to the full Certificate IV TAE qualification.

What are the benefits of doing this course?

This course is cheaper, quicker and easier than the full Certificate IV program. And once completed, you can start training under supervision, and then complete the rest of the Cert IV at your own pace (either in-person or online). The fact that you can then work in a real training environment means you’ll have access to things that make getting a Certificate IV much easier, such as real students to train and real trainer/assessor colleagues to collaborate with on things like validation.

This course is a great option for someone wanting to kick off their training career as soon as possible, without having to commit to the full Cert IV TAE program upfront.

In addition to this, the skill set is also suitable for those who are looking to provide on-the-job instruction in a workplace environment, conduct workplace assessments and skill audits, as well as coaching and mentoring of staff.

Assessment Sessions

Module 1 - TAEASS401 Plan assessment activities and processes
Students are required to complete a quiz and two written assessments

Module 2 - TAEDEL301 Provide work skill instruction
Students are to carry out a minimum of three training sessions, demonstrating and instructing particular work skills for at least two different individuals or small groups

Virtual Classrooms

We recommend that all students who have the ability to perform their practical assessments under the supervision of a qualified assessor in their workplace do so. However, this option may not be available for all students, and that’s where our Virtual Classrooms come in.

Pinnacle’s virtual classrooms enable students to attend live facilitated assessment sessions online with other students studying the same subject. Students are able to demonstrate their competence in “Assess competence” and “Participate in assessment validation” modules in a facilitated session with an experienced and qualified Trainer and Assessor.
