Course Description

Skill Sets are defined as single units of competency, or combinations of units of competency, from an endorsed training package/s that link to a licensing or regulatory requirement, or a defined industry need.

The TAE Training and Education Training Package include one skill set: Address Foundation Skills in Vocational Practice. This skill set is designed to build the capacity of vocational trainers and assessors to address the foundation skills development needs of learners within their vocational practice.

These units are elective units in the TAE Training and Assessment Training Package. They may be used to provide credit towards TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. These units may also be used as elective units within the flexibility provisions of a range of other vocational qualifications.

These units meet industry requirements for vocational trainers and assessors integrating foundation skills into their own vocational practice.

Volume of learning is typically 0.5 – 2 years. There may be variations between short learning duration specialist qualifications that build on knowledge and skills already acquired and longer duration qualifications that are designed as entry level requirements for work.

Distance: $2000
RPL: $1500

There are no specific entry requirements for this qualification, although it is expected that candidates will demonstrate the potential to undertake study at ACSF Level 3. A Pre-Training Assessment is conducted with enrolment to determine the Foundation Skills of the learner in relation to the requirements of the course.

There are three units of competency in this Skillset.
