TAE40110 – Certificate IV in Training and Assessment Pathways Learning pathways individuals navigate their learning and life experiences through education and training, work, community and personal life. transitions that individuals make both within and between educational sectors Occupational pathways movements and progression within a particular vocational area, and these are often promoted by particular industries keen to attract and retain workers industry-specific training does not necessarily lead to individuals gaining work in that industry. Career pathways more broadly conceived and concern the way individuals move between jobs, vocational areas and roles, as well as through education and training programs, both formal and informal. The career pathway is a lifelong journey.
TAE40110 – Certificate IV in Training and Assessment Pathways A recent NCVER report (Martin 2007) Ideally, pathways might be conceived of as ordered with known destinations and with routes to them clearly marked out. Martin’s study suggests that many people follow conventional life-course pathways. In a predictable order and at predictable ages, they complete school, possibly undertake post-secondary education, enter paid work, partner, have children (and, if they are women, withdraw from paid work permanently or temporarily), and so on. Martin suggests that increased acquisition of post-secondary qualifications is probably more marked in non-degree qualifications than in degrees and above, and occurring after many—particularly women—are into their 30s. Martin also notes that patterns of participation are different for different occupations.
TAE40110 – Certificate IV in Training and Assessment Pathways Harris, Rainey and Sumner (2006) describe a number of different types of learner groups. They include: Career developers: those who show consistent interest in a particular area or occupation Career mergers: who, having explored interests in other areas, draw these together to move into a more focused course of study. Pathways are usually non-linear but may be complementary. Two trackers: attempt to develop an alternative career as insurance for a time when their current career is no longer possible. Often occurs when students are trying to improve their chances of earning an income while studying
TAE40110 – Certificate IV in Training and Assessment Pathways Forced learners: undertake what appears to be a completely different course of study for professional development reasons some practical factor obliges them to undertake a particular course, such as affordability, location or entry requirements. Interest chasers: follow various personal fields of interest, bouncing between them. Bridges between pathways Credit transfers Traffic Restrictions for specific pathways Certificates for specific purposes/work (eg. Working at height, etc)
TAE40110 – Certificate IV in Training and Assessment Major Pathways from school into VET, higher education or work within VET, as people move through a range of qualifications in the same or related training packages or to other qualifications. They may also change providers and move up, down or across in the level of qualification undertaken to do this from VET to work; their work may be in a related or different area from their qualification from VET to higher education; this may involve studies in the same area, or a different one within the higher education sector to other courses or institutions
TAE40110 – Certificate IV in Training and Assessment Major Pathways from higher education to VET, possibly in the same but—more likely—a different field of education (Curtis 2009) from higher education and into work. At a later stage they may return to university or to VET for further study from unemployment (whether short- or long-term) or absence from the workforce and into adult education, VET or higher education from retrenchment, workers’ compensation or a disability or supporting parents pension into study to gain new skills to re-enter the workforce. Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is the system’s way of trying to formalise the informal, and increasing the level of recognition of prior learning as a path to more quickly obtaining qualifications is a policy objective. In some cases recognising previous learning may be the predominant mechanism by which qualifications are gained.

TAE40110 – Certificate IV in Training and Assessment Major Pathways About VET students in 2009 already had a higher education qualification. The largest numbers are enrolled in management and commerce, society and culture, mixed field studies (perhaps curiously) and education. Most probably those in Education are undertaking the Certificate IV in Training and Education!
TAE40110 – Certificate IV in Training and Assessment Summary of major pathways Quite substantial numbers of VET graduates go on to university-level study A substantial proportion of students going on to further study, including at certificate III level and above, do so at the same or lower level. the main pathway to higher education would seem to be Year 12 completion. Substantial numbers of VET students already have VET qualifications. Substantial numbers of VET students already had higher education qualifications. about 90% of the possible training package qualifications are active in Australia. little or no data are gathered about the wide range of programs and pathways offered by private providers, industry, suppliers and other groups.
TAE40110 – Certificate IV in Training and Assessment Issues of articulation all registered training organisations (RTOs) recognise a qualification or Statement of Attainment issued by another registered training organisation. providers in both the VET and higher education sectors are responsible for meeting the outcomes required of each qualification, the process needs to ensure the integrity of the particular awards provided. the take-up and use of articulation arrangements is affected when institutions are mistrustful of the quality of outcomes of prior programs of study. VET providers may mistrust the quality of what has been done by schools and, likewise, higher education with VET. universities have been more receptive to TAFE graduates, treating private VET graduates less favourably The issue of grading in VET is contested ground (Guthrie 2009), but it denies universities and employers alike any information of the relative merit of individuals. (NQC is developing the concept of “levels of Competency”) Institutions issuing credit have certain obligations in this regard, which include, for example, recognition of learning, regardless of when, how and where it was acquired (provided of course that it is relevant and current).
TAE40110 – Certificate IV in Training and Assessment National Goals for Schooling New Framework for Vocational Education in Schools – Policy Directions, 2001 (MCEETA) p. 11 Vocational education is an essential and valid element of the education of all students. Vocational education will improve the transition of young people from school to work by acknowledging the importance of lifelong learning. Vocational education will help young people learn in a variety of settings, including the classroom, workplace and the wider community.

TAE40110 – Certificate IV in Training and Assessment Clustering Units “Clustering units of competence for learning and assessment can assist RTOs to produce strategies that address the above points as well as realising significant efficiency benefits for the organisation.” Units of competency can be clustered to provide training and/or assessment solutions for particular needs. A cluster can be defined as a grouping of units which together represent a particular work focus, area of competency development or other need that is relevant to the client. The cluster may form the basis of a specific training or learning program. It is different from the qualification outcome but may contribute to the outcome where the unit cluster is drawn from the package of units in the qualification.
