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

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This unit standard is aimed at ensuring that learners are able to generate the resources required to implement arts and culture projects. Many arts and culture projects are never implemented due to a lack of resources, which is often a direct result of the inability to motivate for such resources. Improved resource generation competence will improve access to resources for the arts and culture field, and will allow credited learners to improve their employability and ability to generate their own income. Learners credited against the unit standard know where to find resources for projects, how to access these resources, and how to leverage lessons learnt for future resource generation.

Qualifying learners are capable of:
  • Developing resourcing strategies and plans for project implementation that are appropriate for and relevant to the organisation and project goals.
  • Motivating for resources to implement specific projects that meet the objectives of the relevant organisation.
  • Recording the results of resource generation for future reference using accepted recording and storage systems. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    The credits assigned to this unit standard is based on the assumption that the following competencies have already been attained, at NQF Level 4:
  • Engage in sustained oral communication and evaluate spoken texts (8974).
  • Read, analyse and respond to a variety of texts (8975).
  • Write for a wide range of contexts (8976).
  • Use language and communication in occupational learning programmes (8979).
  • Represent, analyse and calculate shape and motion in 2-and 3-dimensional space in different contexts (9016).
  • Apply knowledge of statistics and probability to critically interrogate and effectively communicate findings on life related problems (9015).
  • Use mathematics to investigate and monitor the financial aspects of personal, business, and national issues (9014).
  • Fulfil procurement activities and supervise procurement administration (10142).
  • Schedule project activities to facilitate effective project execution (10133).
  • Monitor, evaluate and communicate project schedules (10143).
  • Participate in the estimation and preparation of cost budgets for an element of work and monitor and control actual cost against budget (10134).

    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
