All teaching staff are required to have industry experience as well as teaching qualification such as the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. Teaching staff for Bachelor programs possess post-graduate qualifications relevant to their area such as a Masters Degree (or equivalent).

The assessment will be equitable for all students, taking into account their cultural and linguistic needs.

A range of assessment practices is used by staff to assess competency for courses, including:

  • practical demonstrations
  • practical demonstrations in simulated work conditions
  • problem solving
  • documents/folios
  • critical incident reports
  • journals
  • oral presentations

  • case studies
  • log books
  • projects
  • group projects
  • group discussions
  • examinations.

Level of Qualifications

The AQF qualifications in TAFE are based on nationally endorsed units of competency developed by relevant industry groups. These units identify the skills and knowledge required to work in a specific job or occupation. The qualifications are specified in terms of learning outcomes identified as a set of competencies and may accommodate a variety of pathways to each qualification. The AQF qualifications in universities are knowledge-based rather than competency-based. Refer to the table on page 12 for training and career outcomes.
