As some of you may be aware, the unit TAELLN401A Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills is going to become a core unit of the TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment as of July 2014.  EDIT: TAELLN411 is now a core unit of the TAE40116, along with TAEASS501.

As of July 2015 all VET practitioners will need to undertake or the unit or demonstrate equivalent competence. While changes can be frustrating for some, there's nothing wrong with ongoing professional development and the change makes a great contribution in giving our trainers and assessors the skills to best meet learner needs and improve the quality of training and assessment over all.
