    UNIT STANDARD NOTES 
    Recommendations and exemplars for the design of:

    Learning / Curriculum
    This unit deals with the skills and knowledge required to manage workplace relations, from an industrial relations perspective. The unit focuses on the skills needed by all managers to manage work place relations within the requirements of the law.
  • Learning should include research on current industrial relations issues, legislation and regulations
  • The learner should familiarise him/ her self with the requirements of the legislation and understand the importance of keeping abreast of the legislation.
  • Case studies could form the basis of role-plays until the learner has gained more experience in this field.
  • Learners could prepare discussion topics on counselling, disciplining staff, grievances and resolving disputes. These could be presented to the group as discussion topics.
  • Learner could conduct a hearing/grievance procedure in the workplace under close supervision from management
  • A portfolio of evidence could be collected of procedures that have occurred in the workplace. This should be collected over a period of time to ensure the learner`s ability to manage workplace relations and maintenance of agreed processes.

    Performance systems
  • Ongoing measurement of the learner`s ability to meet this standard is recommended.
  • A new employee should be able to achieve this unit within 2 months of being trained.

    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.
