Certificate II in Workplace Practices

Alert:
Accreditation of course 30981QLD Certificate II in Workplace Practices expires on 28 November 2016. There is no replacement qualification. The course was accredited by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) from 29 November 2011 to 28 November 2016.

Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) should transition from this qualification in accordance with the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015 External Link (Clause 1.26). Therefore, no new students should be enrolled in this course after the expiration date of 28 November 2016. Accredited courses that have become non-current will remain on an RTO's scope of registration for a period of two years. RTOs are therefore able to train and assess in these courses until the end date of the accredited course.

School registered training organisations were reminded of the accredited course expiry through a Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) VET Memo Adobe PDF document External Link in July 2015.

Certificate II in Workplace Practices is designed to give students the knowledge and skills they will need to 'hit the ground running' and to make a positive impression when they first enter employment.

Accreditation

The three Work Education Certificate courses, Certificate I in Work Education, Certificate I in Work Readiness and Certificate II in Workplace Practices were first developed for Education Queensland, the Association of Independent Schools Queensland Inc. and the Queensland Catholic Education Commission with the assistance of funding provided by the Commonwealth Government. They were accredited as training products under the Australian Recognition Framework in 1999. Extensions of accreditation were granted to 31 December 2006. Following a review in 2005, the three courses were updated in 2006 and reaccredited, for the period 13 September 2006 to 13 September 2011.

The courses were reaccredited in 2011 by ASQA as the delegate for the Queensland Training and Employment Recognition Council. Accreditation for the Certificate I courses was valid from 13 September 2011 until 31 December 2013 and the Certificate II in Workplace Practices is registered from 29 November 2011 to 28 November 2016.

The courses have been assessed in accordance with the Standards for VET Accredited Courses External Link.

The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority External Link as an approved delegate of Australian Skills Quality Authority External Link, registers and audits Queensland school RTOs.
