What is course teach out period?
Course teach out period is a process laid out by our governing body ASQA. In short, Open Door is required to finalise all students enrolled in expired versions of our programs. Namely:
- 10535NAT Certificate IV in Workplace and Business Coaching; and
- 10536NAT Diploma of Workplace and Business Coaching.
These two qualifications have been replaced by updated versions:
- 10834NAT Certificate IV in Workplace and Business Coaching; and
- 10835NAT Diploma of Organisational Coaching.
About the re-accreditation process
On 1st January 2020, our regulatory body, ASQA approved the latest version of our coaching qualifications. This was after we completed the extensive re-accreditation process. Importantly, this includes extensive industry consultation about the needs for coaching in the workplace over the next 5 years. Consequently, the programs were updated with new content. In addition, we refreshed existing content. Once the qualifications expired, we moved into the course teach out period.
What happens to the current course and my enrolment during course teach out period?
Teach Out means that you need to finish your course. Importantly, the course you are enrolled in is still valid. Furthermore we can assure you that the qualification that you are completing is still completely relevant to coaching in the workplace today.
However, it just means we have entered a phase where everyone enrolled in the program needs to complete the program. The reason for this is that we are not permitted to issue qualifications in courses that have expired, once the teach out period has finished.
Consequently, the aim it to have everyone completed by 4th December 2020.
What if I want to upgrade?
In the new programs we took the opportunity to refresh the content across the modules. As as a result, we have some new and exciting coaching tools and thinking. You can upgrade to the new qualification. Firstly, you need to complete the existing qualification. Following that, we can send you an information and workbook pack to upgrade your qualification.
Furthermore, you can read the blog about the process here.
What is the next step?
Simply, you need to continue to complete your program. Likewise, during the course teach out period we will also contact you to see how you are getting on. Especially to offer you support if you need it.
Last but not least, we hope you are enjoying your coaching.
