Do you have skills and experience in a vocational field and an interest in sharing your knowledge with others? A career in vocational education and training might be a great fit. In this guide, we’ll show you what steps you need to take to work in vocational education and training as a trainer or assessor.
Why should I pursue a career in vocational education and training?
If you have a background in a vocational trade, a vocational education and training career is a great way to diversify and build upon your current skillset. With this qualification, you’ll learn how to effectively teach others the vocational skills they need to build a career.
Attaining qualifications in vocational education and training – with a Diploma in Vocational Education and Training or Diploma in Training Design and Development – will greatly enhance your employability within the VET sector and enable you to help people gain valuable skills. Your work day will typically include teaching in a TAFE and building well-designed training programs that meets learners’ unique needs.
How do I start?
Here at Rose Training, we offer two nationally recognised qualifications in vocational education and training. Take a look and see which qualification suits you.
If you have current qualifications in any given field, completing the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment will allow you to become a trainer in that field!
The Certificate IV in Training and Assessment gives you everything you need to teach in a vocational setting, and is the minimum you need to qualify for vocational education teaching jobs at Australian TAFEs.
I want to learn to effectively design and deliver training, and/or upgrade my qualifications to assess TAE40110
The Dual Diploma of Vocational Education and Training/Training Design and Development is for you. This Dual Diploma combines the TAE50111 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training with the TAE50211 Diploma of Training Design and Development.
This dual diploma will teach you how to effectively design, prepare and deliver training to learners in the VET sector and crucially, how to determine the type of training that your students require. Delving into more detail than the Training and Assessment Certificate IV, this diploma will equip you with theory and practical strategies to become an effective trainer.
As of 2017, holding at least one of these diplomas will become a must for vocational trainers in Australia who wish to assess TAE40110.
