- Students enrolled from July 2019 will be able to progress through levels and receive a pay increase with Victorian TAFE.
- Charles Sturt amended subjects to include content to meet standards set by Victorian TAFE.
- Accreditation applies to online students in Associate Degree and Bachelor of Adult and Vocational Education.
Charles Sturt University (Charles Sturt) has amended course content to offer a degree that allows teachers to progress a pay level in Victorian TAFE.
Victorian TAFE requires teachers to obtain four elements to progress above Level 2.
As of late 2018, the institute requires teachers to hold an approved Australian Qualifications Framework Level 5 or Level 6 that meets four key criteria to allow for progression, according to the Victorian TAFE Teaching Staff Agreement 2018.
The courses are now approved by Victorian TAFE and students enrolled from July 2019 will automatically meet the requirements.
Charles Sturt University worked with the Victorian TAFE Association to ensure the requirements would be met to become an approved course.
“We haven’t been able to promise them that the course meets the requirements but now we can,” Course Director Adult and Vocational Education/Bachelor of Educational Studies, Daryl South, said.
