    1. 1
      TAEASS401B Plan assessment activities and processes

      Are you able to develop assessments?

      The key outcomes of this unit are to be able to determine purpose and benchmarks for assessment, preparing a plan and developing the assessment tools.

      1. Determining the purpose of the assessment includes identifying the candidate’s reason for being assessed; will this be to identify competency as part of training or to recognise prior learning (RPL)?
      2. Identifying the benchmarks includes; detailing all the requirements which the candidate will be required to demonstrate. This may include competency requirements, knowledge, skills as well as ability to perform in accordance to their organisational standards
      3. Preparing the assessment plan involves working out the what kind of evidence will be suitable for the candidate to use in demonstrating their skills.
      4. Creating a plan of what will be assessed as well as when, where and how the assessment will take place
      5. Developing the actual assessment tool; that could be the questions, observation checklists, etc. which can be used to assess the candidate
      6. Testing the assessment tool in a mock environment to make sure it will be suitable
    2. 2
      TAEASS402B Assess competence

      Are you able to conduct assessments?


      The key outcomes for this unit are: prepare for an assessment, support the candidate in gathering the evidence you will need in making a judgement as to whether or not they meet the requirements, then recording and reviewing the process.

      1. Preparing for an assessment includes reviewing, confirming and implementing the assessment plan (normally the one created in the unit TAEASS401B – Plan assessment activities and processes)
      2. Supporting the candidate in providing the required evidence; this involves working with the candidate in identifying the most suitable methods to demonstrate they are competent against the requirements. It also involves understanding the candidate’s individual situation and determining if any adjustments are required to the plan on a case by case basis.  This will include actually conducting an assessment as well as a RPL.
      3. Making the judgement; based upon the evidence provided you will make a decision on whether the candidates performance meets the requirements.
      4. Recording the decision in line with the required record keeping requirements as well as providing feedback to the candidate on their performance and your decision.
      5. Reviewing the process to identify any opportunities for improvement
    3. 3
      TAEASS403B Participate in assessment validation

      Can you audit assessment plans, processes, tools and decisions to ensure compliance?


      The key outcomes for this unit include; preparing for validation, conducting validation and reviewing validation. 

      1. Preparing for validation is focussed around; establishing the purpose of the session, the relevant benchmarks as well as the required materials.
      2. Conducting validation requires active participation in the review, communication and accuracy check of documentation
      3. Reviewing validation involves keeping accurate records of the session, discussing opportunities for improvements within assessment practice and making the required changes.
    4. 4
      TAEASS301B Contribute to assessment

      Are you a subject matter expert working with a qualified assessor?

      This unit assumes that you have access to an assessment plan and tools which have already been validated (in essence it follows on from TAEASS401B – Plan assessment activities and processes and TAEASS403B – Participate in assessment validation).  The key components of this unit identify your ability to; clarify the roles of each party, confirm any specific organisational requirements, collect evidence and report on findings.

      1. Clarify the roles of the responsible parties includes working with the candidates and qualified assessors to establish the purpose of the assessment, benchmarks and have a shared understanding of the assessment plan.
      2. Confirming the organisation’s arrangements in relation to the required resources and the process of gathering evidence to ensure that the plan is able to be followed in line with any relevant systems, processes, polies and standards which an organisation may have. This may include the identification of reasonable adjustments.
      3. Gathering evidence requires the explanation of the process, the roles and responsibilities as well as clear guidance as to the assessment tool to the candidate. It is also a requirement to actually conduct an assessment.
      4. Recording and reporting of results requires the provision of results in a format which can be provided to a qualified assessor to make a judgement. It also involves an aspect of continuous improvement in seeking feedback for future benefit.

      TAEDEL401A Plan, organise and deliver group-based learning

      Do you deliver training to groups of 6 or more people?

      This unit requires you to develop and facilitate at least two consecutive sessions to a group of 6 of more individuals.  Each session should be roughly 40-60 minutes, to show that you are able to deliver a session of “substantive duration” as defined by industry.

      The key components of this unit are to identify the environment for delivery and take actions to resolve risks, preparing session plans and resources, facilitating your session(s) and supporting your learners.

      1. Identifying the environment requires an identification of the scope of delivery as per your learning program (normally the qualification or unit you are delivering), then understanding the variables for your particular session; specifically, where learning will take place, who your learners are, the risks as well as the roles of involved parties.
      2. Preparing sessions plans requires you to refine the objectives of learning based upon the environment, this may include changing the duration, delivery style, visual aids, activities etc. Then creating a plan which will enable effective delivery of the materials to your audience.
      3. Gathering resources will be driven by the requirements of your session plan and may include developing resources for the learners as well as the organisation of technology and other visual aids.
      4. Facilitating the session requires you to follow your plan, but with a degree of flexibility to accommodate changes within your learning environment. This will require the use of appropriate delivery methods, such as adult learning principles to optimise the learner experience
      5. Supporting learning requires you to work with your learners to ensure they are progressing as planned, making adjustments where required and managing behaviour within the learning environment.
    6. 6
      TAEDEL402A Plan, organise and facilitate learning in the workplace

      Do you deliver training to individuals in the workplace?

       The key outcomes for this unit are; establishing an effective learning environment, planning the learning journey, contextualising the training, working with the learner as well as monitoring the effectiveness of the training.

      1. Creating an effective environment requires setting clear goals as well as the scope of the learning. Identifying current work practices and any health and safety implications.
      2. Planning the learning journey requires the establishment of responsibilities, mechanisms to capture factors such as on the job performance as well as ensuring that relevant stakeholders have provided approval
      3. Contextualising the training requires the training to be delivered to suit the needs of the individual learner. This will require the identification of their learning style, the best techniques as well as a plan which will suit their specific situation.
      4. Working with the learner will require the implementation of the learning plan. This will focus upon explaining the outcomes and providing the learner the opportunity to take ownership of their development through learning, practicing and reflection.  You will need to show at least two sessions where you have prepared for the session, delivered and monitored progress.
      5. Monitoring and review requires you to close the pathway, hopefully at the conclusion of the learning plan. Then applying continuous improvement principles. This will also require you to demonstrate that you are keeping records in line with organisational requirements.

      TAEDES401A Design and develop learning programs

      Do you design training programs?

      The key outcomes of this unit are to define the scope of a training program, work within the VET framework, develop content as well as structuring the program.

      1. Defining the scope of the program requires you to identify the purpose, standards as well as the target group.
      2. Working within the Vocational education and training (VET) framework requires you to understand specific policies and how they apply to work practices, identify changes to qualifications and units.
      3. Develop content requires you, as the subject matter expert to develop content to be used in the delivery of the program
      4. Designing the structure requires you to develop a plan to optimise the delivery of the content, this can be demonstrated through well-developed sessions plans
    8. 8
      TAEDES402A Use training packages and accredited courses to meet client needs

      Do you work with nationally recognised training?

      The key outcomes of this unit are the understanding of training packages, understanding qualifications, understanding units and knowing what can be reasonably adjusted to suit specific client needs.

      Understanding of training packages will require the identification of suitable nationally recognised training to suit client needs

      Understanding qualifications will require the interpretation of packaging rules, pre-requites and understanding how to identify electives to meet job roles and requirements

      Understanding units of competency will require matching the client with the correct unit as well as interpreting each component of a unit.  This will also require the application of assessment guidance.

      Making changes and reasonable adjustments will require you to know what can and can’t be altered and under which situations adjustments can be made to meet client needs.

      • Hi Bruce,

        Thanks for the *. I will contact you for more information on the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. We don’t have a Melbourne course scheduled at the moment, but for an individual we can offer online as well as RPL or we can organise to run a Melbourne-based workshop if you have a group.
        Have a great day

    1. Hi Scope,

      Thanks again for a great course, I have used the Cert IV TAE to get my managers, job- ha ha…

      Just one thing, at the course I was told if I referred a friend I would get some kind of kick-back- I have a couple of guys here at work who need to complete and I’m sending them to scope either way, but if I can score something I will.

      Enjoy your day

      • Hi Jamie,

        I’m glad you enjoyed the course and it’s helped you with your career.

        In terms of the refer a friend deal, for each person you refer you receive a $50 voucher of your choice as does the person you have referred, obviously they could just ask for $50 off the course fee instead- but it’s their call.

        So you both win- just make sure they mention you when they enrol.

    4. Hi, I believe the Training and Assessment course can be completed online. If this is the case, when can I commence? Kind regards

      • Afternoon Elke,

        Great to hear from you. You can commence at any time and you have up to 12 months to complete. I will send through an email with more specific details.

        Speak to you soon,

    5. Hey guys i got reffered from my supervisor at woodside who did the cert iv tae with scope a while back. He said it was super practical and relevant to our industry. He was able to use the training plans and other workplace docs for his assignments. Can i do the same?

    6. Hi Scope
      I have the previous Cert IV TAA and am keen to update. I also have a grad cert in uni teaching. Is there an RPL process and am I able to start anytime plus do the relevant units online?

      • Hi Julie,

        I’ve just sent you an email. The upgrade from the TAA to TAE is pretty straightforward. The main thing we need to address is currency, as a whole, there a few other bits an pieces but relatively small in nature. Currently the TAE40110 which we have on scope is being replaced by the TAE40116, we are in the process of applying for this, so should be up soon. In the current Certificate IV Training and Assessment TAE40110 you don’t have to use the Language, Literacy and Numeracy unit, however the new one requires it as a core. Our recommendation is to include that in your unit choice when doing the upgrade.

        Thanks for your comment,
        Student Support

    7. Hi Scope, can you confirm that you do a block of study for a week at a time only, and not weekly study days over the 10 units? Bit confused, how can you obtain the certificate within a week, whereas online you are given up to 12 months??

      • Hi Paula,

        Now problems at all,

        I’m one of the consultants for the TAE, feel free to contact me directly if you like: nic@scopetraining.com.au

        But in short our qualifications are based upon pre-defined industry outcomes, not duration.

        The workshops are designed are aimed to cover the major aspects of the TAE, divided into 3 blocks; how to design training, how to facilitate training and lastly how to assess training. We also utilise the workshops to assist participants in the demonstration of practical skills. Our courses are pitched at a practicing and practical level and generally participants have an existing degree of experience in training and assessment.

        We do have participants who complete the qualification at the end of the course, historically these are people who have substantial existing experience in the field and chose the workshop model over skills recognition to get more value. This is the minority, you are given 12 months post workshop to gather the evidence required to complete the course. During that time you are fully supported by your consultant in both assisting you with the assessments, training, coaching as well as applying it to your workplace.

        The question of how long a program should be is pretty well answered in this article: https://scopetraining.com.au/training-and-assessment/how-long-should-a-training-course-be-part-1-of-3/ or for the quick version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5g_Qo8yDcw.

        Hope that helps,

        Cheers Nic
