Responsible partner This course has been designed for people who have a real ambition to enter the industry as a trainer and assessor. Our course will focus on providing you with the skills, knowledge and confidence required to become successful in the education industry.

If you want to create a long-lasting, successful, financially rewarding career as a trainer and assessor then this is the course for you!

During our course you will:

  • Be part of a mass online TAE course
  • Receive a material and assessment dump of information and be expected to succeed.

Unlike cheaper, shorter TAE courses, we have a high completion rate with our students making use of their TAE qualification by moving straight into employment.

How does the Part Time / Blended Delivery course work?

Blended delivery explained

Blended LearningWhat is blended delivery?

Blended delivery is a flexible, technology-based approach to teaching and learning that uses a combination on online and face to face classes.

What are the benefits of blended delivery?

There are a number of benefits to the blended delivery approach to education and training both in the workplace and for individuals.

Blended delivery improves access to training for individuals by giving them the flexibility and freedom to learn anytime, anywhere. Blended delivery also provides students with control over the pace of their learning so that difficult concepts can be reviewed as often as required.

The benefits for employers are also many. Employers are able to save time, money and more importantly human resources allow them to up skill their staff without huge amounts of down time in productivity.

Who should use a blended delivery approach?

Those who will benefit the most from a blended delivery approach are:

  • Employers that want to ensure they are meeting their obligations under the new workplace health and safety regulations;
  • Any individual that requires “gap training” following changes to industry standards that might mean they would no longer be deemed competent;
  • Any individual that wants to up-skill or demonstrate their skill level  and competency to a prospective employer.
  • Any individual that wants to change careers but can not afford to take time from paid employment

When can I enrol into a blended delivery course?

The TAE blended delivery course takes enrolments 3 times a year. Please see the ‘enrolment options’ section of this web page for our next intake.
