    UNIT STANDARD NOTES 
    Recommendations and Exemplars for the design of:

    Learning / Curriculum
  • This unit deals with the skills and knowledge required to manage one`s own development within any relevant context.
  • Learning should include research on available development activities (internal and external) within the organisation.
  • The learner must know how to write up a development plan with realistic, measurable goals and objectives.
  • The learner must understand the importance of development plans. Special emphasis should be placed on the review of development plans as well as getting feedback from other relevant people within the organisation.
  • Learner could evaluate and document own skills.
  • Learner could document development activities relevant to the learner`s current position.
  • Learner could formulate a development plan based on the above information. The learner should implement this plan over a period of time. All feedback should be documented together with reviews and updates of the development plan.
  • A portfolio of evidence could be collected of the exercises and project that have been completed. Testimony from other managers/ supervisors would be relevant together with any records of achievement. This unit should be assessed over a period of time so that issues of ongoing implementation and monitoring can be addressed.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: 
    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.
