Training and assessment is a fulfilling career that helps you make a difference in the development of skills in vocational education. You’ll learn how to facilitate training, and conduct assessments in a range of settings no matter the number of learners. You’ll also develop the skill to assess competency in the workplace, which will go a long way in ensuring that your students come out of their training job-ready and suitably qualified.
Central Regional TAFE training and assessment courses are designed to help you create and develop effective and efficient learning programs and assessments for students, as well as facilitate classes through competency-based assessments. This practical focus ensures that once you complete your Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, you’ll be ready to start a meaningful career as an assessor, lecturer, or vocational trainer, no matter if you choose to go into the private or public sector.
If this sounds like the right path for you, you will need to complete a Learner Needs Questionnaire prior to enrollment. You’ll be required to provide information on what your current or proposed area for teaching and assessment is, evidence of a relevant vocational unit of competency or qualification, details of industry knowledge and experience if applicable, and access to a group of at least eight individuals to deliver training. This is to ensure that you’ll get the most out of the training program.
The completion of this qualification is required to become a trainer, as stated in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015. You’ll find yourself training and assessing groups of learners from both private to public training organisations, opening up doors to rewarding career progressions.
