Select your course option
The online program is recommended for Teachers and Trainers in remote or regional locations, or those who simply cannot attend face to face training. If you possess a high degree of self-direction and self-sufficiency, this learning option may be suitable for you.
The online option allows self-driven participants to work through the learning and assessment activities in a self-paced way, at a time and in a location that is convenient to them.
Having said all that, you don't have to go it alone!.....all TAE Academy online learners are supported by an assigned trainer/assessor, who will be available to aid in the clarification of content and assessment tasks as required.
TAE Academy also offers flexible options regarding additional assistance required by individuals undertaking its online programs, including but not limited to:
- Open study days, where online participants can drop in for some one on one support at very affordable rates
- The option to switch to a face to face program at any time
6 Months* (Nominal)
*This is a rough estimation. The amount of time required will vary depending on individual, depending on multiple factors such as previous experience, level of skill and knowledge, and ability to integrate assessment tasks with normal work activities. Assuming no prior skills or knowledge, we encourage participants to allow up to this estimated amount of time for all program commitments.
NEW Face to Face (3 Days)
Note. All TAE Academy Face to Face programs are delivered as a blended model - i.e. a combination of F2F workshops and online activities to be completed post-workshops.
The three day upgrade program includes delivery of content for the units: TAEASS502 - Design and develop assessment tools and; TAELLN411 - Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills
It also includes a refresher and a thorough explanation of the assessment tasks required to be completed to address the gap in the revised units: TAEASS401 - Plan assessment activities and processes and; TAEASS403 - Participate in assessment validation
Participants will learn how to identify and respond to specific individual and group LLN needs and how to design and develop full assessment tools; assessment instruments, candidate and assessor instructions, marking guides and validating mappings.
After noting the excessive out-of-class time and number of re-submissions often required by inexperienced assessment writers undertaking shorter versions, we designed this 3-day program for those with little-to-no experience, to ensure the extra in-class time sets participants up for success out-of-class.
2-4 Months* (Nominal)
3 Full Days
*This is a rough estimate only.
