The Public Sector Commission has supported an expedited variation of the existing Government (Level 4) traineeship which will align it to the new PSC40122 Certificate IV in Government qualification. While the superseded and new qualifications are deemed non-equivalent, the occupational outcomes for a student completing either qualification would be very similar and can be considered practically equivalent.
The traineeship is currently attached to the superseded PSC40116 Certificate IV in Government. For the traineeship to continue being available in Western Australia it needs to align to the updated qualification PSC40122 Certificate IV in Government.
The recommendation for an expedited variation of the existing Government (Level 4) traineeship has been submitted for consideration by the State Training Board.
