Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (for Registered Secondary Teachers)

This Certificate IV in Training and Assessment is designed for registered secondary teachers involved with the design, delivery and assessment of VET competencies.

This course is designed for registered secondary teachers and takes into account current their experience as educators in the secondary high school context.

As of 1 March 2024, secondary school teachers with relevant qualifications may train and assess within the VET sector, providing they complete either the TAESS00019 Assessor Skill Set or the TAESS00024 VET Delivered to School Students Teacher Enhancement Skill Set. 

In simple terms, this means that registered secondary teachers are no longer required to complete the full Certificate IV in Training and Assessment to train and assess in VET.
