This unit contains employability skills.

Evidence Required

List the assessment methods to be used and the context and resources required for assessment. Copy and paste the relevant sections from the evidence guide below and then re-write these in plain English.

The evidence guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Overview of assessment

This unit of competency could be assessed in the workplace or a close simulation of the workplace environment, provided that simulated or project-based assessment techniques fully replicate construction workplace conditions, materials, activities, responsibilities and procedures.

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit

A person who demonstrates competency in this unit must be able to prepare materials and components for manufacture and assembly of at least one of the manufactured units or products listed in the range statement, providing evidence of the ability to:

comply with OHS regulations applicable to workplace operations

comply with organisational policies and procedures, including quality assurance requirements within the context of preparation of materials

indicate a clear understanding of construction requirements of maximum and minimum dimension standards and governing authority, where applicable

adopt and use sound techniques to identify material requirements, including allowances for joints

indicate a clear understanding of joining methods and method of assembly of unit

select and use appropriate processes, tools and equipment to carry out tasks

demonstrate sound techniques in the selection and handling of material for components

demonstrate sound techniques in handling and storing materials to ensure surfaces and edges are protected

demonstrate sound and safe techniques to prepare material for manufacturing process

communicate with others to ensure safe and effective workplace operations.

Context of and specific resources for assessment

This competency is to be assessed using standard and authorised work practices, safety requirements and environmental constraints.

Assessment of essential underpinning knowledge will usually be conducted in an off-site context.

Assessment is to comply with relevant regulatory or Australian standards' requirements.

Resource implications for assessment include:

work area appropriate to task

working drawings and specifications relevant to task

procedure documents appropriate to manufacturing processes

tools, plant and equipment relevant to manufacture process

materials appropriate to proposed project activity.

Reasonable adjustments for people with disabilities must be made to assessment processes where required. This could include access to modified equipment and other physical resources, and the provision of appropriate assessment support.

Method of assessment

Assessment methods must:

satisfy the endorsed Assessment Guidelines of the Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package

include direct observation of tasks in real or simulated work conditions, with questioning to confirm the ability to consistently identify and correctly interpret the essential underpinning knowledge required for practical application

reinforce the integration of employability skills with workplace tasks and job roles

confirm a reasonable inference that competency is not only verified under the particular assessment circumstance, but is able to be transferred to other circumstances and environments.

Validity and sufficiency of evidence requires that:

competency will need to be demonstrated over a period of time reflecting the scope of the role and practical requirements of the workplace

where the assessment is part of a structured learning experience the evidence collected must relate to a number of performances assessed at different points in time and separated by further learning and practice with a decision on competency only taken at the point when the assessor has complete confidence in the person's demonstrated ability and applied knowledge

all assessment that is part of a structured learning experience must include a combination of direct, indirect and supplementary evidence.

Assessment processes and techniques should, as far as is practical, take into account the language, literacy and numeracy capacity of the candidate in relation to the competency being assessed.

Supplementary evidence of competency may be obtained from relevant authenticated documentation from third parties, such as existing supervisors, team leaders or specialist training staff.

Assessment Tasks

Copy and paste from the following data to produce each assessment task. Write these in plain English and spell out how, when and where the task is to be carried out, under what conditions, and what resources are needed. Include guidelines about how well the candidate has to perform a task for it to be judged satisfactory.

Required skills

Required skills for this unit are:

ability to recognise procedures, respond to change and contribute to workplace responsibilities, such as current work site environmental or sustainability frameworks or management systems

communication skills to:

enable clear and direct communication, using questioning to identify and confirm requirements, share information, listen and understand

follow instructions

read and interpret drawings

use and interpret non-verbal communication

use language and concepts appropriate to cultural differences

innovation skills to select appropriate tools and equipment, respond to workplace challenges and put ideas into action

numeracy skills to apply measurements

planning and organisational skills to identify requirements, apply relevant resources and sequence tasks

problem solving skills to recognise and take action to rectify minor faults and problems

teamwork skills to be able to work with others to action tasks and relate to people from a range of cultural, social, ethnic backgrounds and with varying physical and mental abilities.

Required knowledge

Required knowledge for this unit is:

Building Code of Australia (BCA) and relevant Australian standards (e.g. AS1657 Fixed platforms, walkways, stairways and ladders - Design, construction and installation)
