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

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
A person assessed as competent against this unit standard will be able to:
  • Define a wide spectrum of physical and intellectual disabilities.
  • Describe the social and economic factors contributing to the prevalence of disability in South Africa.
  • Identify the philosophy underpinning South African legislation and policy relating to people who have a disability.
  • Reflect on practices in South African workplaces and identify the underlying values relating to people who have a disability.
  • Describe the implications for management practices of dealing with people who have a disability.

    This competence will equip learners with an understanding of issues relating to workers with disability, as well as to their own values and workplace practices in relation to such workers. It will contribute to normalising South African society and result in workplaces which better reflect the diversity of South Africa and which have a better capacity to handle such diversity. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    HTTL&G:

    A learner taking this standard is assumed to have achieved the competence outlined in the level 4 standard: `Working with People who have Special Needs`. 

    UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    HTTL&G:

    Guides to the scope and complexity of the specific outcomes and essential embedded knowledge are provided in ranges/points beneath each. These are prefaced by "for example" since they are neither comprehensive nor necessarily appropriate to all contexts. Alternatives must however be comparable in scope and complexity. These are intended only as a general guide to scope and complexity of what is required. 

    Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria: 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 1 
    A wide spectrum of physical & intellectual disabilities in South Africa are identified 
    OUTCOME NOTES 
    A wide spectrum of physical and intellectual disabilities prevalent in South Africa are identified.

    For example:
  • Definition includes naming the disabilities.
  • Definition includes outlining the physical/intellectual, social, psychological and professional implications for people with disability. 

  • ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    The assessment of a person against this standard should meet the requirements of established assessment principles.

    It will be necessary to develop assessment activities and tools which are appropriate to the contexts in which the skills will be applied. These activities and tools may include an appropriate combination of self assessment and peer assessment; formative and summative assessment; and portfolios and observations.

    When conducting assessments, assessors must ensure that they are familiar with the full text of the Unit Standards being assessed.

    They must ensure that the assessment covers the specific outcomes, critical cross-field outcomes and essential embedded knowledge.

    As each situation is different, it will be necessary to develop assessment activities and tools, which are appropriate to the contexts in which practitioners are working. These activities and tools may include self-assessment, peer assessment; formative and summative assessment.

    The specific outcomes and essential embedded knowledge must be assessed in relation to each other. If a practitioner is able to explain the essential embedded knowledge but is unable to perform the specific outcomes, they should not be assessed as competent. Similarly, if a practitioner is able to perform the specific outcomes but is unable to explain or justify their performance in terms of the essential embedded knowledge, they should not be assessed as competent.


    METHOD OF ASSESSMENT:

    Assessment should include practical demonstration of competence, either in the workplace or through work-realistic, out-of-classroom simulation.


    Integrated assessment:

    It may be more effective and efficient to assess a number of unit standards together thus reducing the overall number of assessment 'events'.
  • Consider a complete activity in the workplace (the 'whole of work' approach) and see which unit standards relate to this activity.
  • Work out how practitioners could collect evidence on a number of unit standards at the same time covering all the critical aspects of the standards
  • Ensure that commonalities that exist between a number of unit standards are captured in a way that makes sense for assessment. 
  • ASSESSMENT CRITERION RANGE 
    A range of assessment methods should be used, including:

    Direct observation - watch the practitioner carry out the task or produce a desired outcome during the course of his or her normal work under normal workplace conditions
    Product sample - examine the outcomes previously produced by the practitioner
    Simulation of a specific task - set a specific task for the practitioner to demonstrate in a simulated environment
    Questioning (verbal or written) - ask relevant questions linked to the unit standard
    Testimony - collect a portfolio of evidence from suitable people (eg: reports from a third party)
     

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 2 
    Describe the causes of the physical and intellectual disability 
    OUTCOME NOTES 
    For example:
  • Causes include the social and economic factors contributing to the prevalence of the disability in South Africa.

  • SPECIFIC OUTCOME 3
