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

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This Unit Standard is intended for a range of people, including managers, supervisors, mentors, operators who may not be Education, Training and Development (ETD) specialists, but who are able to help people who have been on training to move from a generic skill to a particular application within the workplace.

People credited with this Unit Standard are capable of:
  • Orientating a learner into the application of their skills within a workplace context.
  • Guiding learners towards competent application of their skills within a workplace context.
  • Assessing learner performance in the workplace context.
  • Reviewing facilitation processes in the workplace context. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is assumed that learners are already competent in terms of the learning area in which they will facilitate transfer of skills. 

    UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    This Unit Standard is intended to define the competencies of those who work with learners after training/facilitation, and possibly assessment, has happened. This Unit Standard is intended to deal with that kind of training/facilitation that moves a person from a relatively generic skill in their area of learning, to direct application within a particular context or work environment. This Unit Standard is intended for a range of people, including managers, supervisors, mentors, operators who may not be ETD specialists, but who know the job/application, and are able to help people move from a generic skill to a particular application within the workplace.

    This Unit Standard is not meant to be just about inducting a person into their job, rather, it is about actual training in the particular application after a person has already developed the core skills involved. This process might or might not be used to generate assessment evidence, depending on whether the person has already been assessed or not.

    The nature of the learning will be different from on-the-job training in that on-the-job training is at a lower level and focuses on tasks with discreet and well-defined steps. This Unit Standard focuses on more substantial, integrative applications of learning, including the applications of principles and theories, but within a particular workplace context. This Unit Standard also allows for the application of enterprise standards.

    Note: the existence of this Unit Standard should not be taken to suggest that a person who has been trained or assessed is not competent. However in certain contexts, after a person has been trained, they might still need more directed training in a particular workplace context to learn about particular procedures, drills, processes, systems and applications.
