PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The learner achieving this unit standard in combination with other content-related standards will be able to adapt existing spaces in the community for utilisation as a facility in the Sport and Fitness context. The learner will do this by recognising, identifying and creatively adapting existing resources as a facility and equipment.

This unit standard, combined with other core and elective Sport and Fitness standards in a national certificate in Sport and Fitness Leadership (NQF 4) will provide the learner with the competence to practice as a Sport and Fitness leader. In addition they will be well positioned to extend their learning and practice into other areas of Sport or Fitness disciplines, or to strive towards professional standards and practices at higher levels.

Competent leaders in Sport and Fitness will provide quality experiences to participants and thus strengthen the profession in general. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
It is assumed that a learner entering a program leading to this unit standard has communication and numeracy equivalent to NQF 3. 

UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
Guides to the scope and complexity of the specific outcomes and essential embedded knowledge are provided in bullet points beneath each. These are prefaced by "for example" since they are neither comprehensive nor necessarily appropriate to all contexts. Alternatives must however be comparable in scope and complexity. These are intended only as a general guide to scope and complexity of what is required.

    UNIT STANDARD NOTES 
    This unit standard has been replaced by unit standard 243299, which is " Adapt available spaces in the community as a sports or fitness facility ", Level 4, 5 credits.

    When conducting assessments, assessors must ensure that they are familiar with the full text of the Unit Standards being assessed.

    They must ensure that the assessment covers the specific outcomes, critical cross-field outcomes and essential embedded knowledge.

    As each situation is different, 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 self-assessment, peer assessment, formative and summative assessment.

    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 not be assessed as competent.


    Method of Assessment

    Assessment should include practical demonstration of competence, either in the workplace or through work-realistic, out-of-classroom simulation.

    A range of assessment methods should be used, including:
  • Direct observation - watch the practitioner carry out the task or produce a desired outcome during the course of his or her normal work under normal workplace conditions
  • Product sample - examine the outcomes previously produced by the practitioner
  • Simulation of a specific task - set a specific task for the practitioner to demonstrate in a simulated environment
  • Questioning (verbal or written) - ask relevant questions linked to the unit standard
  • Testimony - collect a portfolio of evidence from suitable people (e.g.: reports from a third party)


    Integrated assessment

    It may be more effective and efficient to assess a number of unit standards together thus reducing the overall number of assessment 'events'.
  • Consider a complete activity in the workplace (the 'whole of work' approach) and see which unit standards relate to this activity.
  • Work out how practitioners could collect evidence on a number of unit standards at the same time covering all the critical aspects of the standards.
  • Ensure that commonalities that exist between a number of unit standards are captured in a way that makes sense for assessment.

    Assessing the following will ensure the specific outcomes; essential embedded knowledge and critical-cross-field outcomes are assessed:

    Demonstrated ability to make DECISIONS about practice and to ACT accordingly:
    1. Suitable spaces in the community are recognised and identified.
    2. Surfaces are correctly prepared and ready for use.
    3. Lay out requirements is explained.
    4. Appropriate Sport and Fitness information is accessed.
    5. Types of activities are described.
    6. Volunteers are working effectively according to the programme.
    7. Sources of information related to a specific environment are listed.
    8. Methods of storage of information are described.

    Demonstrated ability to learn from our actions and to ADAPT PERFORMANCE:
    9. Activities, rules and equipment are adapted to suit the needs of the target group, the availability of resources and environment.
    10. Open spaces are adapted and utilised for activities.
    11. A variety of materials are adapted and used to produce equipment.
    12. Reflect on, measure and evaluate performance in order to improve future practice and learning.


    Demonstration of the knowledge and skills outlined in this unit standard must be consistent with the principles of:
  • Respecting the natural and cultural environment.
  • Accepting and maintaining a non-discriminatory attitude towards diversity including, For example: differences in gender, race, religion, ability and culture.

    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.
