TAE Structure Drop Down

The course duration is 6 months of learning and assessment, with up to 12 months to complete the course from the day your course commences, giving you time to fulfil all necessary training requirements (see below).

We understand that life can sometimes get in the way of your studies, so to help keep you on track, we will provide you with a comprehensive Training Plan.

The amount of training required to complete this course comprises three items:

  1. Self-paced study hours
  2. Pre-recorded webinar sessions
  3. Assessment hours

1. Self-paced study hours

Theory before practice! Self-paced study refers to the time required to read and understand the course content before tackling the formal assessments. Note that some modules will require more self-paced study due to the nominal hours and volume of learning required. To complete activities within your assessments, you will be required to undertake additional independent research. This includes researching training and assessment websites, government websites, and published articles relating to the VET sector.

For a comprehensive breakdown of the amount of self-paced study hours, please refer to the Information Pack.

2. Pre-recorded webinar sessions

All students will have access to all 8 pre-recorded webinar sessions via the online portal. The webinars act as additional study material aimed at exploring training and assessment concepts in further detail.

3. Assessment hours

Assessment hours refers to the expected time you should allocate towards completing the assessment activities in each module, such as written questions, case studies, and projects. Every module is different, and some modules will take longer to complete than others. The overall time taken to complete these assessments will also depend on other factors, such as time commitment and familiarity with the course content. If you would like a breakdown of the estimated assessment hours, please refer to the Information Pack.

Every good trainer and assessor needs to demonstrate good oral communication and interpersonal skills, and the projects in your course are where you can showcase these skills! As such, each project will require the assistance of participants, who can be friends, family members, work colleagues, etc. Refer to the below table for more details.

iLearn eCollege specialises in quality delivery for TAE40116 Certificate IV Training and Assessment and this course is the minimum requirement for all VET practitioners as per the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015.

Completing this course requires research, independent study and some practical tasks for particular units. Assessment of many units of competency from the TAE Training and Education Training Package requires access to a ‘practice environment’ where students have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and knowledge with learners in real learning contexts. For many of the units and qualifications in the package this includes having access to a suitable practice environment where students have access to a learner cohort and time to develop their practice with learners. The practice environment should be as realistic as possible and should reflect the environment in which students will be practising in future. However, iLearn eCollege is able to provide students with access to simulated scenarios that gives them the opportunity to meet the following critical criteria:

  1. Quality – The work is of the standard required for entry into the industry.
  2. Productivity – The work is performed within a timeframe appropriate for entry to the industry.
  3. Safety – The work is completed in a manner that meets industry safety standards.

Assessment activities are realistic and reasonable in terms of scale. Assessment conducted under simulated conditions reflect those typically found in the workplace.
