06 Aug How long will it take me to complete TAE50216 Diploma of Training Design and Development?
As we have released a date to facilitate a Blended delivery of this qualification we are receiving quite a few telephone calls asking the above question. The first thing to consider is there are 2 distinct pathway; the Training and Assessment pathway and the Quality Auditing pathway. Each of these pathway’s shares the same core units, however there are 3 elective which differ. These different elective units will change the amount of time required to complete the qualification.
Click on the tabs below to see each pathway.
This pathway includes 3 units which would be extremely difficult to complete unless you are currently working in an RTO. The following units are included in the training and assessment pathway:
- TAEDEL502 – Provide advanced facilitation practice – In this unit you must complete 100 hours of group facilitation,
- TAEASS501 – Provide advanced assessment practice – In this unit you must assess a total of 50 units of competency for at least 20 individuals,
- TAEPDD501 – Maintain and enhance professional practice – In this unit you are required to document, reflect and discuss with peers evidence of feedback from at least 10 hours of facilitation practice & interviews with assessors covering at least the assessment of 10 candidates enrolled in VET programs.
This pathway will take the average learner 8 to 10 months to complete although this is only a guideline as some will complete quicker and others will take longer.
It should be remembered this is a Diploma (AQF level 5) qualification and as such it has a Volume of Learning in excess of 1,500 hours and you are given 18 months to complete. The qualification is highly regarded by employers in the VET environment as very few people undertake it, most relying on a Certificate IV level qualification.
