Developing Training and Assessment Strategies

 
 
Budget, nominal hours, funded hours

Where the delivery of training is government funded, state training authorities decide on the nominal hours of qualifications and individual units, and these form part of purchasing agreements. You will learn in TAA40104 Certificate IV Training and Assessment that it is important to know the suggested nominal hours for a qualification, as it is around these that many courses will be structured. When funding is tied to delivery of nominal hours, there are clear links between nominal hours, budgets and staffing.

Nominal hours are listed on state training authority websites. You can access your state training authority website by following the links from the DEST website.
Activity: TAA40104 Certificate IV Training and Assessment Nominal Hours

What are the nominal hours for each unit of competency in TAA40104 Certificate IV Training and Assessment?

Other strategies are based on funding that workplace training and assessment organisations tender for. These programs are tendered out at $ per student contact hour (SCH). In order to calculate the $ per SCH, workplace training and assessment organisations have to be careful to calculate all costs involved in delivering the program.

To what extent does funding determine how the services of your TAA40104 Certificate IV Training and Assessment practice environment are offered? Have you ever significantly changed an aspect of your services because of changes in funding? Discuss with your colleagues.
