This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Persons credited with this unit standard will be able to facilitate a well-structured and varied programme of learning, implement the principles of OBE, use a range of teaching methods and techniques and encourage learners to participate actively and confidently in the learning process. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
  • FETC or RPL equivalent;
  • Unit Standard: 'Facilitate an adult learning event';
  • Unit Standard: 'Evaluate own facilitation practice';
  • Both from the level 4 qualification, core unit standards. 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    For the purposes of this standard, a 'programme of learning' is a structured sequence of learning events or activities designed to lead to the demonstration by learners of prescribed or defined exit outcomes.
    The term 'programme of learning' is used rather than 'learning programme' as this often refers to the overall ETD programme of an organisation.
