VISA Guide 2019 - TAFE SA
Introduction
This document details a TAFE SA state-wide approved approach for SA secondary schools wishing to deliver
and assess units of competency or qualifications from Training Packages:

TAFE SA is only offering the units and/or qualification(s) listed in this document to schools under a VET in
Schools Arrangement (VISA). – Refer to page 10 for other options.
TAFE SA as the Registered Training Organisation (RTO) requires that you use the enclosed information as a
self-assessment checklist activity to ensure all physical and human resources are in place prior to application
for a VISA schedule.
Teachers and VET Co-ordinators will need to have a thorough understanding of the requirements as
presented in this booklet and must have attended the annual mandatory VISA Preparedness Training.
For further information regarding the obligations of the School and TAFE SA involved in the proposed
arrangement, please refer to the overarching VISA Memorandum of Administrative Arrangement (MAA) or
Head Agreement (HA) held with your school.
Please note TAFE SA is required to report all auspice arrangements to ASQA in full.

How to go about setting up a VET in Schools Agreement
The following list provides a guide to get started.

   1. Read through this booklet and ascertain if you and your school are willing to enter an auspice
      agreement

   2. If the answer to item 1 is YES, then refer to the Annual Self-Assessment Checklist and commence
      completion of the required information that demonstrates that your school is ready to apply for a VISA
      schedule.

   3. With your Annual Self-Assessment Checklist completed, contact TAFE SA with the details of the
      course and/or units you wish to deliver

   4. Your TAFE SA contact will make a time with you to go through the requirements.

       a.   Evidence as stipulated on the Annual Self Assessment Checklist are to be provided to TAFE SA
            and through to the VISA@tafesa.edu.au

   5. A time will be made for TAFE SA to visit your school in 2018 to ensure you’re ready for delivery in
      2019. On successful demonstration that you and your school are ready for a VISA you will receive an
      approval advice from TAFE SA – you must wait for this VISA official letter advice before you can
      commence marketing or delivery with students. At the beginning of the academic year, or on
      confirmation of the agreement, you will need to work with your students to set up their profiles through
      myTAFESA (online system). See section on School Obligations.

                                                                                                 P a g e 3 | 79

VISA Guide 2019 - TAFE SA
Educational Currency Requirements
TAFE SA Educational Currency Requirements

TAFE SA have determined that all Trainers engaged in training and assessment will undertake a minimum of 9
hours of activity in relation to “educational currency” annually to ensure compliance.

As an extension of TAFE SA, Teachers delivering under an auspice agreement are required to meet the same,
as previously advised during the mandatory VISA Preparedness Sessions.

Under Auspice agreements, such as those held with Secondary Schools in the form of VET in Schools
Agreements, ASQA states the following:

Clause 1.16

The RTO ensures that all trainers and assessors undertake professional development in the fields of the
knowledge and practice of vocational training, learning and assessment including competency based training
and assessment.

What this Standard means for your RTO

Your RTO must ensure that all trainers and assessors undertake professional development in VET, and
specifically in competency based training and assessment. (This includes trainers and assessors employed or
contracted by your RTO and those engaged by a third party delivering training and assessment on behalf of
your RTO. However, arrangements about how this is paid for are a matter of negotiation between your RTO
and the people concerned.) The Standards do not prescribe how often professional development must occur,
but it must be sufficient to ensure they have current knowledge and skills in vocational training, learning and
assessment. Simply delivering training and assessment does not constitute professional development.

A guide to compliance

RTOs must retain evidence that all trainers and assessors have undertaken relevant professional development
in VET. The Standards do not prescribe what format this evidence takes, but you may choose to include
registers of development activities undertaken.

Examples of activities that contribute towards evidencing Educational Currency are:
   1. Undertaking Diploma of Vocational Training or other similar VET focussed qualifications
   2. Completion of TAE40116 and/or upgrades
   3. Assessment Mapping and/or Validation refresher courses
   4. Moderation of VET competency assessment - within school site or cross sector clusters - with an
      experienced VET Practitioner (someone external to the school/s) present
   5. Industry Pathways Programs Networks where content is focussed on competency based training and
      assessment practices
   6. Professional Reading and activities related to competency based training and assessment
      methodologies eg webinars, workshops, reading
   7. Collaboration between TAFE SA trainer and School teacher/trainer
   8. Educational Currency Certificates issued by TAFE SA for courses taken under the Educational
      Currency

Evidence of activities undertaken is required to be maintained with TAFE SA.

Teachers are required to send scanned copies of their evidence through to the visa@tafesa.edu.au email
account.

TAFE SA will validate the evidence and confirm this through a return email.

                                                                                                  P a g e 8 | 79

Job Roles / Employment Outcomes

There are no specific job outcomes to the CPC10111 Certificate I in Construction, but the skills achieved will
assist in successfully undertaking a Certificate II pre-vocational program or job outcome qualification, or will
facilitate entry into an Australian Apprenticeship.

Application

This Certificate I in Construction provides an introduction to the construction industry, its culture, occupations,
job roles and workplace expectations. The units of competency cover essential work health and safety
requirements, the industrial and work organisation structure, communication skills, work planning, and basic use
of tools and materials. The qualification is built around a basic construction project unit that integrates the skills
and embeds the facets of employability skills in context. The qualification is suited to VET in Schools programs
or learners with no previous connection to the construction industry or relevant employment history.

The construction industry strongly affirms that training and assessment leading to recognition of skills must be
undertaken in a real or very closely simulated workplace environment and this qualification requires all units of
competency to be delivered in this context. A substantial period of work placement is recommended to ensure
the unit outcomes are met.

Licensing/regulatory considerations

*Completion of the general induction training program specified by the National Code of Practice for Induction
Training for Construction Work (ASCC 2007) is required before entering a construction work site. Achievement
of unit CPCCWHS1001 covers this regulatory OHS requirement before access to any building and construction
work site.
