Trainer and Assessor Competence and Currency

Delivery of quality vocational training relies on having properly qualified educators with relevant experience. Specific requirements for trainers and assessors are mandated by the Standards.

Working Under Supervision

When a Registered Training Organisation employs someone who is not a trainer and assessor to deliver and assess training, specific working arrangements, qualifications and other compliance requirements must be considered and applied. This is part of ‘Working Under Supervision’.

Skill Sets and Microcredentials

Skill Sets are a single Unit of Competency or combinations of Units of Competency from an endorsed Training Package, which link to a licensing or regulatory requirement, or a defined industry need or job role. Micro-credentials are small, certification-style courses that focus on a particular area of study to hone proficiency over the shortest possible time.

Qualifications

As one part of the endorsed component of a Training Package, qualifications are a group of Units of Competency ‘packaged’ together as the requirement for working in a particular industry role at a specific level. A qualification is also the official documentation recognising competency in all of the units specific to a particular grouping of units.

Accredited Courses

Accredited courses supplement the national training package framework by delivering unique training outcomes in industry required skills that are not covered by relevant Training Packages or endorsed Units of Competency.

Apprenticeships and Traineeships

Collectively known as ‘Australian Apprenticeships’, both apprenticeships and traineeships offer the opportunity and benefit of being trained and working towards a nationally recognised qualification, whilst working in industry and earning a wage.

Education Services for Overseas Students Framework (ESOS)

The ESOS Framework performs a number of functions with respect to organisations offering courses to international students studying in Australia on a student visa.

Training and Accreditation Council (TAC)

The Training Accreditation Council (TAC) is the body responsible for regulating RTOs in Western Australia.

Mapping

Assessment needs to adequately cover all aspects of a unit of competency and its associated assessment requirements. Mapping is the process of checking and recording all necessary information is addressed.

Delivery of Training

Delivering training takes planning and preparation to ensure all resources, rooms and content is accounted for.

Recruitment

Recruitment is about finding the right people with the right experience, qualifications and attitude to help the business succeed.

VET Quality Framework (VQF) - Australia wide

The VET Quality Framework (VQF) is a set of standards and conditions used by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), the national VET regulator, to assess whether registered training organisations (RTOs) under its jurisdiction meet the requirements for registration. To obtain and retain registration, RTOs must comply with each of the elements and their associated components.
