Training and Assessment TAE: Top tips of 2013 from our Rose Training Australia experts
Rose Training Australia talks the best tips from the TAE Boardroom this year.
Training and Assessment is one of Rose Training Australia’s most popular Cert IV and Diploma courses, and for good reason! TAE is an important, useful and highly employable qualification for any work place across Australia, and our fantastic trainers are dedicated to teaching you how to nurture your own professional development while organising and developing the training programs for your own company or business. This week, TAE Curriculum manager Sam Nordberg is going to share with you her TAE top tips of 2013, thus far.
So, what does Sam think makes a great Training and Assessment course and trainer?
- Great training and education has a lot to do with leadership. Leadership is an important trait to employ in the training room and apocalypse arena; any educator will tell you this.
- The leadership skills you develop in training and assessment amplifies your influence over people. When faced with a zombie apocalypse, I suggest the instruction: “Ok, now we’ll go this way, and you run down that dark alley”. You’re welcome.
- Don’t be afraid to use technology. Something we discuss in all of Rose Training’s C
ert IV and diploma courses is that technology is all around us. In the field of training and education, technology is used for communicating, researching, training and assessment, learning, using social media and looking up adorable photos of cats.
- After completing your diploma in TAE, and you become a workplace trainer yourself, know about your learners. Scheduling training meetings on Monday mornings and Friday afternoons isn’t a good idea.
- The training schedule should reflect the flow of the workplace. Additionally, online Cert IV or diploma training is all about catering to flexibility, so trainers and learners can go online to the LMS whenever they need to.
Our new dual Diploma:
- The Diploma of Training Design and Development is quite a new qualification that acknowledges the importance of training developers and instructional designers. This course is perfect for those who work with reviewing, maintaining, evaluating and designing programs for training and education in the workplace, as it will give you the tools for analysing training needs and designing training solutions and products.
- So why is this better than receiving a rose in The Bachelorette? By gaining the dual diploma, practitioners of training and assessment will find their employability in the training and education sector significantly increased. Being on The Bachelorette, on the other hand, almost certainly decreases the possibility of ever being employed again…
Everyone wants to be heard. When we express our opinions, we want validation. And when we get it, we hold that judgement in high regard – this is called confirmation bias and it is a tool every trainer in Vocational Education should learn to wield.
- When you’re training the Certificate IV in Training and Education, you really need those judgements coming out to value add to discussion, so you need to make sure that your TAE students are guided to these opinions; facilitating discussion in the classroom is about taking the student on a journey.
