PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
A practitioner who has achieved this unit standard will be able to manage and oversee the logistical support for learning programmes/learner ships, either in a single context or across contexts.

This competence will allow practitioners to better manage their own contribution to workplace skills development environments and plans.

The competence prepares a practitioner for broader managerial learning and roles. 

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 manage learner ships or learning programmes related to their occupational competence. 

UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
The following statements provide a general guide to the scope and complexity of the competence expected of a practitioner:
1. Practitioners are required to demonstrate that they can perform the specific outcomes with understanding and reflexivity. However, at this level they will have internalised the "rules" or principles, which inform what they do, and will not longer be operating consciously with such rules.
2. The practitioner is required to demonstrate the competence described in this standard in the context of learning programmes/learner ships.
3. The specific outcomes should be performed in line with an established methodology for managing learner ships/learning programmes. At this level the practitioner should be able to describe two alternative methodologies; to explain how their performance would differ if they used them and to justify their choice of methodology.
4. At this level, practitioners should be able to relate knowledge beyond their occupational and ETD competences to the performance of the ETD competence described in this standard. 

Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria: 

SPECIFIC OUTCOME 1 
Design and develop a management system for a learnership/learning programme. 
OUTCOME NOTES 
Design and develop a management system for a learnership/learning programme
by, e.g.:
  • ensuring that the management system provides the support required for the learning to occur; and
  • understanding management systems for the implementation of learnerships within an enterprise as well as across various contexts. 

  • ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    See Notes. 
    ASSESSMENT CRITERION NOTES 
    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 knowledge's 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 
    Co-ordinate the management of a learnership/learning programme. 
    OUTCOME NOTES 
    Co-ordinate the management of a learnership/learning programme by, e.g.:
  • ensuring alignment with the educational aims and supporting the needs of the learnership/learning programme; and
  • taking resources and educational management trends into account; and
  • keeping the management open to reflection and adaptation.
