Heath et al’s Education Discipline Threshold Learning Outcomes model (ALTC/ACDE 2011)

  • Aligns to AQF levels and dimensions of learning outcomes

  • Provides a rich picture of the body of knowledge and skills underpinning teachers’ work

  • Can be customised to reflect the knowledge and skills specific to VET teachers (as revealed in the ACDEVEG mapping work)


Next steps

Next steps

  • Build on the ALTC/ACDE TLO model to produce a statement of the VET teacher and trainer body of knowledge and skills

  • Used in future development and refinement of ACDEVEG qualifications

  • Used to represent VET teacher knowledge and skills at higher AQF levels for prospective students and stakeholders
