In order to be assessed as Competent (C) you need to provide evidence that supports your underpinning knowledge and that demonstrates you can perform the required competencies, to the required standard. Competency depends on consistently demonstrating the skills, attitude and knowledge that enable you to complete workplace tasks, confidently and in a variety of situations, relating directly to the learning outcomes and performance criteria described in this particular study unit.
Final assessment and submission of evidence
To attain competence in this unit you must submit online to your assessor:
- the completed activities
- the completed final assessment questions and projects
In addition you must submit if necessary:
- verification of practical tasks – your workplace supervisor or manager should complete the supervisor/ third party assessment sheet (contained within the Sign Off document)
- any other assessment activities as determined by your assessor
Other assessment might include:
- observation by an assessor, of your workplace performance
- provision of any other evidence you have or have been asked to gather by your facilitator or assessor – for instance, work documents or copies of policy and procedure manuals to which you have made a major contribution; the use of such documentation should be checked with your manager/ supervisor
- participation in simulations and role-plays
It is up to the assessor to design and use the appropriate tools and to collect sufficient evidence to justify a judgment of competence.
When undertaking the projects which make up the final assessment activities, timeframes and submission dates should be negotiated with your facilitator/ assessor.
When using materials from published authors to support your assignment work, remember to cite and reference the works correctly, using the Harvard Referencing System. Remember that material downloaded or accessed via the internet also requires correct referencing.
If you have any questions regarding copyright and plagiarism discuss these with your facilitator or assessor.
You are completing a formal qualification so make the evidence and assignments you submit a reflection of the quality of work you would want to produce in a workplace.
Competency assessment map
The activities, assessment questions and projects in this unit have been mapped against the learning outcomes and performance criteria for the unit. They are not intended to provide, alone, a complete assessment.
The learning objectives at the beginning of each section outline the performance criteria that describe the competencies you need to demonstrate. If you believe that you can already demonstrate these skills, please talk with your facilitator/ assessor about applying for recognition of your skills.
