Course information in detail
- Course detail, course structure and units of study.
To meet today’s needs in industry you will need:
- Nationally recognised training - the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE) is essential for working in the vocational education and training (VET/TAFE) sector, and is also required by many private training organisations
- Great trainers - our teachers are highly skilled and qualified, and teach a variety of courses (not just TAE), so they understand your ‘real-world’ challenges
- Access to current training technologies and ‘best practice’ techniques - we revise the course delivery every year to ensure you learn the best ways to deal with new technologies and adult learner expectations
- Practice face to face - our TAE course happens in the classroom, so you get to hone your skills delivering training in person, assessing competency and designing training programs with in-person support. We additionally offer practice in online delivery
- Support sessions - studying with us gives you weekly online support from a qualified TAE trainer (in addition to the classroom support), so you have more chance of understanding the activities and assessments you’re undertaking
- Enhancing your employability - while it is a desirable qualification, possession of the TAE alone does not guarantee you will work in training, assessing or instructional design – you must also have vocational currency (broad industry knowledge and experience and possibly another qualification). Swinburne has a careers team that will provide individual advice on how you can capitalise on your training
Students have 8 hours of timetabled classes one day per week for a duration of 12 months, at either Hawthorn or Croydon.
Training is offered during the week and on a Saturday.
There are three teaching periods and each of these teaching periods will vary between 8 and 12 weeks.
Students will need to undertake an average of 2.5 hours further study per week outside of the timetabled classes.
