Business is business, right? Compliance is an ongoing process of catch-up to ivory tower academics with no real-world experience of business. They don’t understand the necessity for prioritisation in an increasingly competitive environment. It’s good enough for us if we get it right 80% of the time, so it should be good enough for them.
If you buy into such corporate whining and self-serving justification well, it’s your soul, right? Allegedly, you’ve got the right to sell it, so what the hell?
ASQA another one
- Fail an ASQA audit and carry right on, no problem
- Get seriously non-compliant and hit the [DON’T PANIC] button to scramble mop-up crews and designated officers to put out the bush fires.
- Really screw up and you’re shut down as the auditor walks out the door. Unless you are a monolithic state run body that gives TAC the finger and calls upon ministerial ire to rain fire until, well, just until!
Your Trainers and Assessors had better be qualified..
In 2017 the Standards for RTOs 2015 were updated. Changes were made to Clauses 1.11, 1.14, 1.15, 1.18, 1.23 and 1.24 that from 31 March 2019, trainers and assessors MUST hold:
have the TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment AND one of the following:
- TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills or its successor (or the superceded TAELLN401A)
Avoid the thinking
that your trainers and assessors can operate unqualified when supervised.
The supervisor must ensure that trainers and assessors under their supervision must have current industry experience and vocational skills. Apparently such aren’t imputed by local gravitational farces. Go figure…
- Table in Schedule 1 of the 2015 Standards and amendments
- Comparison of TAE40116 with TAE40110 and earlier qualifications
- RTO’s that deliver TAE40116
This amendment has also seen some changes to the requirements for those participating in validation, to reflect these qualification requirements.
