This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The rationale for this unit standard is based on the importance of disseminating relevant information to the different role-players with the purpose of informing them with reliable and valid information. The role-players in turn will utilise the information in ways specific to their needs, which may range from monitoring, evaluating and implementing plans and strategy. The dissemination of the information will take the form of written documents and contributions to documents such as annual reports, as well as oral and visual presentations during planning seminars, conferences and meetings.

The unit standard will be useful to learners who plan a career in academia and/or direct service delivery, and who will be required to disseminate information. Learners credited with this unit standard are able to:
  • Analyse the different sources of information.
  • Prepare written documents or contributions to documents on information.
  • Distribute information to role-players. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    Communication, and language competencies should be in place before an attempt is made to attain the outcomes of this unit standard. Learners should already be able to engage in sustained oral communication and evaluate spoken text; read, analyse and respond to a variety of text; write for a wide range of contexts. In addition the learner should have attained the competencies of conducting research. 

    UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
  • Role-players refer to any person or group or organisation that has specific need for information.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: 
    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
