At Short NoticeThanks for all your efforts with the ACSF workshops for the taxi industry. Your flexible approach to the project and your ability to develop and deliver the workshops at short notice was really appreciated. The workshop learning environment was positive and supportive. The workshop provided a useful overview of the ACSF. Activities involved in determining ACSF levels helped to develop the concept of the progression of skill levels. Thanks again for the work you have done.
FunThe workshop was lots of fun (I mean work) and very worthwhile.
Tailored DeliveryThank you for tailoring your delivery to meet the diverse needs of our company. I found your flexible and holistic approach motivating. Your wealth of knowledge and innovative ideas to implement ACSF was well received as one year later we have actively embedded the ACSF into much of our processes across our entities – we recognised the value to our staff and clients and we implemented it. Thanks again for your support and guidance.
So TAELLN411 is now a core TAE40116 unit—what are the implications for trainers and assessors?
Must trainers and assessors attain TAELLN411?
The answer is, 'no'. In fact, it has never been—nor is it now (as yet)—mandatory for qualified trainers and assessors to add TAELLN401 or 411 to their list of units held.
Currently the VET world is waiting for an announcement from COAG with information about whether or not trainers and assessors who are already qualified will need to 'upgrade' their qualification to meet requirements of the new—and tougher—TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
But if your question is: Should trainers and assessors attain TAELLN411?
In our opinion, the answer is a resounding 'yes'! This unit—if delivered by a reputable RTO—is fabulous professional development for trainers and assessors working in any industry. I know that completing this unit has certainly made me a better trainer, because:
· I am now far more aware of the foundation skills (including LLN) that my students need if they are to successfully complete my programs
· I'm better at being able to uncover and isolate foundation skills and explicitly teach these as I teach workplace skills
· It exposed me to endless possibilities and opportunities to keep learning how to address LLN skills in my vocational training... and I'm still learning!
Completing TAELLN411 is a fabulous way to get started building a realisation that LLN is everyone's challenge, and we can make a positive difference to our students' lives, even if we only work with them for a short time.
Training completion rate declines for young people
Media release : 27 August 2015
Lower proportions of training qualifications are being completed by young people, with the overall completion rate of students aged 25 years and under declining 5.9 percentage points, according to the latest data. Published annually by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER), The likelihood of completing a government-funded VET program 2009-13 shows the completion rate for all government-funded training programs started in 2013 decreased to 34%, down from 36% for programs started in 2012.
At MW Training our student completion rate is 88 Percent!!! Nearly 3 times better than the national average!!!
Why not travel and work at the same time the MW Tesol course (teaching english to speakers of other languages) might be for you. The course can be completed in under 12 months and off you go!
