  • I have the industry experience, but no training qualifications
    • There are a few options to consider when looking to become an Educator at CIT.

      1. To commence work as a VET Educator you will need to complete the Work Instructor Skill Set (TAESS00028). This is an 8 week course completed part time, and will allow you to commence your teaching journey. Please register your interest by emailing the Humanresouces@cit.edu.au email address, outlining your area of industry experience, and we will forward your application to the applicable area. When an opportunity arises, they will reach out and explain the enrolment process.

      Once your Skill Set is complete we can look at engaging you as a Trainer Under Supervision, and you will have 12 months to complete your Cert IV in Training and Assessment whilst you are working as an Educator.

      2. Teach in the future

      Commence your Certificate IV in Training and Assessment TAE40116 while you remain in your current employment. Once you have completed the qualification you will be able to start teaching unsupervised. This option can be taken for either full-time, part-time, or casual teaching arrangements.
