Unpinning the VET system is the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40116), which a VET teacher will most commonly have. Above this are the Diploma of Vocational Education and Training (TAE50116 ), Diploma of Training Design and Development (TAE50216) and the Graduate Certificate in Digital Education (TAE80316).
The Cert IV is intended for both VET and Enterprise Trainers and Assessors, the Diploma for VET Trainers and Assessors, and the Grad Cert is intended for Tertiary, secondary and primary teachers. The Dip TDD, is intended for Instructional Designers in all sectors.
The Cert IV, Dip TDD and Grad Cert appear most applicable to IT professionals.
