    Let’s Explore Units of Competence (UOC)

    • How do we make sure that what we ask of our candidates is truly the skill set they will need to attain competencies?

    • Where do we find this information out,

      • Is it readily available information?

      • Is this hidden in a jargon jungle?

      • Is there a simple answer?

    Unpacking taades401b
    Unpacking TAADES401B

    • Why choose this unit to unpack

      • I consider this unit to be the TAA dictionary, most of the common terms used with training packages are explained in the document

      • This unit forms the basis (underpinning skills) for the learning that occurs when planning, delivering, assessing and validating.

    Presented by Karen Holmes at the VPN Network - July 2008


    The elements
    The Elements

    • Elements describe the essential outcomes of a unit of competency.

      • There are 6 listed for TAADES401B

    Presented by Karen Holmes at the VPN Network - July 2008


    Performance criteria
    Performance Criteria

    • Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the required skills and knowledge section and the range statement. Assessment of performance is to be consistent with the evidence guide.

      • There are 27 listed for TAADES401B

    Presented by Karen Holmes at the VPN Network - July 2008


    Range statement
    Range Statement

    • The range statement relates to the unit of competency as a whole. It allows for different work environments and situations that may affect performance. Bold italicised wording, if used in the performance criteria, is detailed in the UOC.

    • Essential operating conditions that may be present with training and assessment (depending on the work situation, needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts) may also be included.

      • There are 19 listed for TAADES401B

    Presented by Karen Holmes at the VPN Network - July 2008

    Employability skills1
    Employability Skills

    • What do these really mean:

      • There are skills in 8 categories

      • The categories summarise the type of skills that will be required of a person who holds this UOC

    • So what does this mean:

      • Our candidates must be able to perform their work tasks at an acceptable level for the type of work they are undertaking

      • Our candidates holding this UOC will be able to conduct the associated work requirements appropriately

    Presented by Karen Holmes at the VPN Network - July 2008


    Wow information overload
    WOW !! – Information Overload!!

    • Now we’ve looked at the basics of what is required, how do we get there?

    • While retaining our sanity!

    Presented by Karen Holmes at the VPN Network - July 2008


    Plan a
    Plan A

    • Start at the beginning and step out from (a) to (z) what your learners candidates must achieve:-

      • Where do they start?

      • What path will they travel?

      • What is the definitive end?

    Presented by Karen Holmes at the VPN Network - July 2008


    Plan b
    Plan B

    • Start at the point your candidates have to achieve,

      • Then work backwards in establishing a process of how to get there

      • Setting an end goal can be how you can work out the processes/steps you need to take

    Presented by Karen Holmes at the VPN Network - July 2008


    Plan c
    Plan C

    • Look at your own personal learning preference

      • Do you like knowing the outcome needed and working towards it?

      • Do you like to find out where you start and be pragmatic about how to reach the end?

    • Once you’ve identified how you like to do things, then set up your assessments to ensure that you cover all information required.

    Presented by Karen Holmes at the VPN Network - July 2008


    Taa understanding the specific evidence criteria
    Tips

    • Remember for Trainers/Assessors we too must embrace how we like to learn/travel/explore, then we can truly plan the journey

    • How you choose to put together your plans isn’t the outcome, the outcome is that you have a set of plans that meet all the requirements your candidates need from you.
