11 January 2016
A friendly reminder that from 1 January 2016 new clauses in the ASQA standards come into effect that impact trainers and assessors and RTOs. A quick overview:
From 1 January 2016, all trainers and assessors must hold one or more of:
  • TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (or its successor)
  • A Diploma or higher level qualification in adult education.
From 1 January 2016, anyone who provides assessment only (i.e. does not deliver training) must hold one or more of:
  • TAESS00001 Assessor Skill Set (or its successor)
  • TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (or its successor)
  • A Diploma or higher level qualification in adult education.
From 1 January 2016, demonstrating equivalence of competencies will not be sufficient. Trainers and assessors must hold the TAE40110 or its successor.

Your RTO must also ensure that all trainers and assessors undertake professional development in the fields of:
  • knowledge and practice of vocational training, and
  • learning and assessment, including competency-based training and assessment.
