Is it Time for a Career Change?

It’s a new year! After almost two years living through a pandemic, is it time for a career change?

Have you burnt yourself out trying to juggle family and work commitments and want a work-life balance? Have you been working on the tools for so long you’ve broken your body and need a break? Do you want to share your work experience with the next generation of workers? Do you want to improve your work options and gain extra skills for your current job?

Have you Thought About Becoming a Trainer and Assessor?

The average trainer assessor salary in Australia is $98,037 per year or $50.28 per hour. Entry-level positions start at $81,000 per year, while most experienced trainer assessors make up to $117,000 per year. Talent.com

Many people who become Trainer and Assessors have qualifications in their chosen field and are looking for further education to future-proof their careers.

Imagine a nurse who has been working in an emergency department for 20 years and no longer wants to work night shifts as they’ve injured their back and are exhausted. Or a builder who has been on the tools for 30 years and is nearing retirement. They want to pass on their years of experience and skills to the next generation of builders.

There are plenty of reasons why our students want to become a Trainer and Assessor.

Steve Supel, TAE Trainer at Inspire, loves working in the VET sector.

“Working in the VET sector is great if you love your industry and genuinely want to make a difference to how your industry evolves. It can be quite exhausting working as a teacher/trainer but so is running a marathon.”

“The reward comes when you can see positive results for your effort and determination. In my present role, I am lucky enough to meet people from all walks of life and to assist them in achieving the next milestone in their lives.”
