PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Learners who are assessed as competent against this unit standard will be able to procure labour, monitor the performance of team members including disciplinary action and provide on-job training and coaching

This competence complements the other generic supervisory competencies and underpins the Elective learning.

It contributes to the development of a professional community of Building Construction Supervisors. The contribution to The National Skills Development Strategy is the key developmental interface between learners and new competencies to be achieved.

Its contribution to socio-economic transformation is that learners would be able to undergo RPL-assessment and thereby receive recognition for previous learning and experience. The employability and career prospects of learners can therefore be enhanced by this qualification.
