PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Persons accredited with this unit standard are able to plan and facilitate Technical/Practical skills learning to adult learners by systematically planning and implementing learning and teaching strategies.Candidates will be able to facilitate and assess learning within meaningful contexts, relate the learning to other learning or operational areas and manage resources needed.
