Articulation and pathways

For more information about qualifications and pathways contact Innovation and Business Industry Skills Council (http://www.ibsa.org.au).

The TAE10 Training Package, which includes the Certificate IV Training and Assessment,  does not mandate particular pathways for the qualifications provided. Entry points and progression rely heavily on the background, experience and qualifications currently held by the learner. Choices in the individual qualification routes associated with language, literacy and numeracy, management or international education services will depend on the preferences and needs of the learner.

The Certificate IV Training and Assessment (TAE40110) qualification can lead to the Diploma of Vocational Education and Training (Dip VET TAE50111) or the Diploma of Training Design and Development (Dip TD & D TAE50211).  If though it is not a pre-requisite for both Diploma's, its advantageous to have the Cert IV prior to commencing Diploma studies.
