What units I am required to complete?

TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills

This unit describes the skills and knowledge a vocational trainer or assessor requires to identify language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) skill requirements of training and the work environment, and to use resources and strategies that meet the needs of the learner group.

The unit applies to individuals who teach, train, assess and develop resources.

Competence in this unit does not indicate that a person is a qualified specialist adult language, literacy or numeracy practitioner.

TAEASS502B Design and develop assessment tools

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to design and develop assessment tools, including tools used in formative, summative and recognition of prior learning (RPL) assessment.

An assessment tool is used to guide the collection of quality evidence in the assessment process. It includes the specific instruments for collecting evidence, as well as information about assessment methods and the procedures to be followed in conducting the assessment.

This unit typically applies to those involved in training and assessment or in the development of learning resources or products, assessors, learning resource or product developers, and training and assessment consultants.

Pathways to further study and university

After successfully completing the two units (in addition to holding the CIV TAE40110), graduates have several pathways options:

  • Entry into TAE50111 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training and/or TAE50211 Diploma of Training Design and Development
  • Entry into TAE80113 Graduate Diploma of Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy Practice
  • With vocational experience and qualifications, there are a number of advanced standing pathways into university programs such as the Bachelor of Adult Vocational Education and Training at Charles Sturt University (CSU) and other higher education providers

How do these units fit with the new TAE40116?

Originally training providers were informed that the only change to the upcoming TAE40116 would be the addition of the LLN unit, however, since the release of the qualification the diploma level assessment unit has been added. Consequently the vast majority of TAE40110 holders with have to complete both TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills & TAEASS502B Design and develop assessment tools. There is no requirement for current TAE40110 holders to upgrade if and when the TAE40116 is widely available. Read our article on the implications of the new TAE40116. While some training providers and TAFE have insisted that CIV TAE40110 holders must have the LLN or Assessment units, these are not mandatory and is at the discretion of each training provider.
