Employability Skills
Learning Outcomes and Application This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to organise and facilitate rehearsals across a range of productions – live, in film, television or events.It applies to individuals who set up logistics and communication channels so rehearsals run smoothly. They prepare documentation, liaise with cast and crew, and locate and prepare rehearsal venues. Coordinating rehearsals is typically the role of a production manager or stage manager in conjunction with a producer or director.No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
Duration and Setting X weeks, nominally xx hours, delivered in a classroom/online/blended learning setting.

Assessment must be conducted in a safe environment where evidence gathered demonstrates consistent performance of typical activities experienced in creative arts industry environments. The assessment environment must include access to:

venues where rehearsals could realistically take place

interaction with others

rehearsal and organisational documentation

physical production elements

information about relevant awards and WHS regulations.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational educational and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
