The NSW Government has released a policy for the use of Smart and Skilled funding for the delivery of the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40116).
Smart and Skilled funding for TAE40116 Policy Detail
The policy says Smart and Skilled funding cannot be used for the upskilling of currently qualified trainers and assessors (i.e. individuals who hold the previous minimum qualification requirement under the Standards (TAE40110)).
Nor can funding upskill current assessors who hold the previous minimum skill set requirement under the Standards (i.e. TAESS00001, to meet the new minimum skill set requirements under the Standards, i.e. TAESS00011).
Providers (RTOs) must not enrol individuals, who hold the TAE40110, into TAE40116 or grant credit transfer and/or recognition of prior learning (RPL) under the Smart and Skilled Targeted Priorities Full Qualification Program.
