    UNIT STANDARD ACCREDITATION AND MODERATION OPTIONS 
    1. Anyone assessing a learner against this unit standard must be registered as an assessor with the relevant ETQA.

    2. Any institution offering learning that will enable achievement of this unit standard must be registered with the FE/HE Registrar.

    3. Any institution wishing to receive skill development grants must be accredited with the relevant ETQA. Such an institution will also be registered with the relevant SETA.

    4. Moderation of assessment will be done by the relevant ETQA at its discretion. 

    UNIT STANDARD ESSENTIAL EMBEDDED KNOWLEDGE 
    Embedded knowledge and Critical cross-field outcomes have been included within the specific outcomes category.
    This has been done as it was deemed necessary to ensure holistic assessment occurred.

    The specific outcomes can be applied in a range of contexts.

    Many of the outcomes have been written in such a way that competence must be demonstrated in the context as opposed to in isolation from a context.

    The specific outcomes are comparable to outcomes used internationally.

    We therefore structured outcomes using the format noun + verb + condition (modifying phrase)Specific outcomes have been split into three categoriesa) knowledge and understanding (what the learner must know and understand)b) decision-making and acting (what the learner must do)c) adapting performance ( including reflexive competence)In many instances there are more than six specific outcomes, as the inclusion of critical cross-field outcomes and embedded knowledge has increased the number of specific outcomes.

    If competencies are to be clustered in a meaningful way, then these unit standards cannot be split. 


    Critical Cross-field Outcomes (CCFO): 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO IDENTIFYING 
    Identify and solve problems (Specific Outcomes 6,8) 

    UNIT STANDARD NOTES 
    This unit standard has been replaced by unit standard 243955, which is "Identify short-term supply needs", Level 4, 3 credits.

    Essential embedded knowledge is dealt with under the specific outcomes section where "demonstrated KNOWLEDGE and UNDERSTANDING" is required.

    RECOMMENDATIONS AND EXEMPLARS FOR THE DESIGN OF:

    Learning/Curriculum
  • The learner must be familiar with the current legislation / regulations relating to supplies.
  • The learner must understand the importance of identifying correct stock levels, lead times and consumption levels applicable to their workplace.
  • Potential exercise: The learner can do research into the impact of supplier problems relating to stock levels and make suggestions on how to avoid these problems.
  • Potential exercise: The learner can research the impact on customer service of supply shortages and the consequences thereof.
  • Potential project: The learner can identify the existing recording formats in his/ her workplace, do research into other organisations relating to their recording formats. Assess which is the most effective with reasons and discuss how to implement or create a new format from their own work experience.
    Performance systems
  • Ongoing measurement of the learner's ability to meet this standard is recommended.

    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.
