PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
A practitioner who has achieved this unit standard will be able to develop training materials that meet the needs of the target group. The practitioner will draw on available resources in the development of new training materials.

This competence combines with other competences (such as facilitation) to build better ETD practices.

In addition, the development of outcomes-based training materials, which are relevant to the South African context and to the learners' needs will support the forms and goals of education and training within the National Qualifications Framework. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
Practitioners applying to enter a learning programme for this ETD standard -or applying to be assessed against this ETD standard -are assumed to have a qualification or equivalent competence in an occupation in which they will practice this ETD competence.

This standard describes the ETD competence, which will be needed for them to develop training materials within their occupational competence. 

UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
A practitioner assessed as competent against this standard will be able to:
1. Practitioners are required to demonstrate that they can perform the specific outcomes with understanding and reflexivity. However, at this level they will have internalised the "rules" or principles, which inform what they do, and will not longer be operating consciously with such rules.
2. The practitioner is required to demonstrate the competence described in this standard in the context of learning programmes/learner ships.
3. The specific outcomes should be performed in line with an established methodology for developing training materials. At this level the practitioner should be able to describe two alternative methodologies; to explain how their performance would differ if they used them and to justify their choice of methodology.
4. At this level, practitioners should be able to relate knowledge beyond their occupational and ETD competences to the performance of the ETD competence described in this standard. 

Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria: 

SPECIFIC OUTCOME 1 
Identify the need for materials. 
OUTCOME NOTES 
Identify the need for materials by, e.g.,
  • reviewing courses or programmes which are/will be offered;
  • reviewing existing materials to identify gaps or weaknesses; and
  • analysing the scale of need, priority of materials and cost implications. 

  • ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    See Notes 
    ASSESSMENT CRITERION NOTES 
    The assessment of practitioners against this standard should meet the requirements of established assessment principles.

    It will be necessary to develop assessment activities and tools, which are appropriate to the contexts in which practitioners are working. These activities and tools may include an appropriate combination of self-assessment and peer assessment; formative and summative assessment; portfolios and observations; etc.

    The assessment should ensure that all the specific outcomes, critical cross-field outcomes, and essential embedded knowledge's are assessed.
    1. The specific outcomes must be assessed through observation of performance. Supporting evidence should be used to prove competence of specific outcomes only when they are not clearly seen in the actual performance.
    2. Essential embedded knowledge must be assessed in its own right, through oral and written evidence. It cannot be assessed only through seeing the knowledge being applied.
    3. The specific outcomes and essential embedded knowledge must be assessed in relation to each other. If a practitioner is able to explain the essential embedded knowledge but is unable to perform the specific outcomes, they should not be assessed as competent. Similarly, if a practitioner is able to perform the specific outcomes but is unable to explain or justify their performance in terms of the essential embedded knowledge, they should also not be assessed as competent.
    4. Evidence of the specified critical cross-field outcomes should be found both in performance and in the essential embedded knowledge.
    5. Performance of the specific outcomes must actively affirm target groups of learners and not unfairly discriminate against any learners. Practitioners should also be able to justify their performance in terms of these values.
    6. As occupation-directed ETD practice is intended to contribute to the goals outlined in the skills plans of the workplace, enterprise or sector, practitioners should explain how their performance does this. 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 2 
    Develop outcomes to be achieved through the materials. 
    OUTCOME NOTES 
    Develop outcomes to be achieved through the materials by, e. g.,
  • analysing the audience to identify typical styles and needs;
  • developing outcomes in relation to national standards; and
  • consulting those involved in delivery of programmes and courses.
