TAE40116 to TAE40122

Whilst the TAE40122 qualification is deemed equivalent to the TAE40116 many of the individual units of competency are not equivalent.

This means that to upgrade to the new TAE40122 qualification there is a need to show competence in a number of skills and knowledge areas.

As the unit codes are no longer the same there is no opportunity for credit transfer, however RPL can be granted for:

TAEDEL301 is equivalent to TAEDEL311 Provide work skill instruction

TAEDEL402 is equivalent to TAEDEL412 Facilitate work-based learning

A core unit TAEASS401 Plan assessment activities and processes from the TAE40116 has been delete from the TAE40122. This means that there are only 9 units of competence that are applicable for the upgrade.

TAE Packaging Rules

TAE40116 has 9 core and 1 elective unit making a total of 10 units of competency. TAE40122 has 6 core and 6 elective units making a total of 12 units of competency.

Therefore any applicant will need to undertake training and assessment or RPL for 1 core unit TAEPDD401 Work effectively in the VET Sector and 3 elective units of competency.

Application for TAE40116 Upgrade

Considerable evidence is required to upgrade from the TAE40116 to the TAE40122.

The applicant will need to be aware that the gathering, collation and assessing of gap evidence could be quite time consuming and almost equivalent to a full RPL application.
