About CHC40213 | Certificate IV in Education Support

This qualification reflects the role of workers in a range of education settings, including public and independent schools and community education settings, who provide assistance and support to teachers and students under broad-based supervision. Some job roles may require tasks to be performed with a moderate level of autonomy and/or the provision of supervision/leadership to other staff/volunteers.


Flexible Delivery

Traxion Training currently delivers this qualification as assessment only via Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Students will be expected to complete a self assessment kit as a first step in completing the RPL kit. If gap training is required to attain this qualification, students will need to complete the gap training with another provider. This means that, in the event that gap training is identified, Traxion Training will only be able to offer students a Statement of Attainment.

Duration

Duration of the Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) process is approximately 8 weeks to 6 months. It is largely dependent on the student’s ability to respond to the assessment kit provided. The RPL Kit normally consists of the following sections (please note this is subject to change, please contact us for detailed information)

  1. Self-Assessment Questionnaire
  2. List of Evidence Documents & Workplace Portfolio
  3. One on One Competency Questioning Interview with the Trainer
  4. Observation recording sheets
  5. Third Party Verification

RPL & Credit Transfer

All courses can be completed using an assessment only pathway through RPL if the candidate possesses sufficient skills and experience as determined by the assessor.
