Extension of TAE upgrade requirements to 1 July 2019! 

If you were trying to complete the new assessor requirements by the April 1st deadline, or have been waiting for your assessments to be assessed and documentation issued – you now have a three-month extension, until 1 July 2019.

Recent feedback from the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector to the Department of Education and Training showed that trainers and assessors at some RTOs may not have met the new requirements by 1 April 2019, due to the increased number of trainers and assessors accessing gap training. This resulted in some RTOs being unable to keep up with demand to assess and issue relevant documentation by that date.

In response to this feedback, Skills Ministers agreed to delay the introduction of these requirements to 1 July 2019, so that trainers and assessors can continue to train while undertaking gap training for a further three months. The Standards for RTOs have been amended accordingly. 

What does this mean for you?

If you’re a trainer and assessor with the TAE40110 Training and Assessment qualification you can continue to design, deliver and assess while undertaking gap training for a further three months. There will be no further extensions, so if you don’t have your Statement of Attainment by July 1st, you will no longer be compliant as a trainer and assessor.

Haven’t completed your assessment for TAEASS502 Design and Develop Assessment Tools yet?

Note that once you submit your assessment to us, it takes a minimum of 30 days for our assessors to assess your work and the Statement of Attainment / Certificate to be issued.

Looking forward to your success,

The team at Workplace Dimensions


Need help with your assessment?

Here’s some F.A.Q’s from our RTO Manager, Frances Hou.

1. What documents do I need to provide for my assessment?
All the assessment requirements are listed at the back of the learner guide, however here’s a list of the documents you’ll need to provide in your assessment in a visual format. Click below to view the requirements.

2. There’s so many learner resources, can you just give the fill-in for the assessment?
Sure! We’ve put them in one zip file document for you here:
Password: Check your learner guide on page 21.

3. What’s the biggest errors people have made with their assessment submissions?

  • The report on the ‘Trial of Assessment Tool’ requires two people to be reviewers. You will be one of them and the other person can be your supervisor or someone familiar with the content.
  • Follow the folder and file name for the assessment documents instructions under Section D. For example, the file name should start with unit code, document name, version number and date, which will look like TAEASS502 Assessment Plan version 1 01042019.

What’s the TAE Upgrade?

Changes to the Standards mean all TAE40110 Certificate IV Training and Assessment qualified trainers and assessors need to meet new credential requirements by 1 July, 2019. If you haven’t completed them already, you’ll need to add 2 new units to your existing qualification to stay compliant:

  • TAELLN411 Address Adult Language Literacy and Numeracy and

  • TAEASS502 Design and Develop Assessment Tools.

We still have dates left to undertake this program before the July 1st deadline.
