PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Practitioners who have achieved this unit standard will be able to identify and provide structured and targeted skills development opportunities in the workplace.

This unit standard will therefore provide recognition for individuals who are competent coaches and enhance their employability.

The quality of education and training will be enhanced, thus contributing to the full personal development of each learner. In addition, organisations will achieve rising levels of productivity and competitiveness. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
Practitioners applying to enter a learning programme for this ETD standard -or applying to be assessed against this ETD standard -are assumed to have a qualification or equivalent competence in an occupation in which they will practice this ETD competence.

This standard describes the ETD competence which will be needed for them to coach learners in their occupational competence. 

UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
The following statement provides a general guide to the scope and complexity of a coach:
1. The specific outcomes should be performed in line with an established methodology for coaching learner`s -and the choice of the methodology should be explained. At this level the practitioner is not expected to know more than one methodology. 

Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria: 

SPECIFIC OUTCOME 1 
Demonstrate a task in a practical manner. 
OUTCOME NOTES 
Demonstrate a task in a practical manner by, e.g.:
  • explaining the task in appropriate language whilst demonstrating it;
  • pacing the demonstration to match learners' needs; and
  • ensuring the demonstration of the task complies with health and safety regulations. 

  • ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    The assessment of practitioners 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 practitioners are working. These activities and tools may include an appropriate combination of self assessment and peer assessment; formative and summative assessment; portfolios and observations; etc.

    The assessment should ensure that all the specific outcomes, critical cross-field outcomes, and essential embedded knowledges are assessed.

    1. The specific outcomes must be assessed through observation of performance. Supporting evidence should be used to prove competence of specific outcomes only when they are not clearly seen in the actual performance.

    2. Essential embedded knowledge must be assessed in its own right, through oral and written evidence. It cannot be assessed only through seeing the knowledge being applied.

    3. 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 also not be assessed as competent.

    4. Evidence of the specified critical cross-field outcomes should be found both in performance and in the essential embedded knowledge.

    5. Performance of the specific outcomes must actively affirm target groups of learners and not unfairly discriminate against any learners. Practitioners should also be able to justify their performance in terms of these values.

    6. As occupation-directed ETD practice is intended to contribute to the goals outlined in the skills plans of the workplace, enterprise or sector, practitioners should explain how their performance does this. 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 2 
    Provide appropriate opportunities for a learner to practice skill and knowledge. 
    OUTCOME NOTES 
    Provide appropriate opportunities for a learner to practice skill and knowledge by, e.g.:
  • ensuring tasks are sequenced in a logical manner;
  • ensuring tasks are appropriate to learners' needs;
  • checking learners' understanding of the task;
  • modifying task instructions according to learners' needs;
  • providing supplementary information to learners to reinforce key learning points; and
  • orientating learners to the availability of resources.

    6. As occupation-directed ETD practice is intended to contribute to the goals outlined in the skills plans of the workplace, enterprise or sector, practitioners should explain how their performance does this. 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 3 
    Assess the learners' competence. 
    OUTCOME NOTES 
    Assess the learners' competence by, e.g.:
  • evaluating learners' competence by means of progress evaluation and remedial actions;
  • assessing learners' competence to perform tasks unaided; and
  • providing feedback on progress to the learners.
