PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The learner achieving this unit standard will be able to perform effective and efficient administration within the Sport and Fitness context. They will do this through accurate management and administration of a Sport and Fitness activity. They will demonstrate a basic understanding of an administration system and administration factors. The learner will demonstrate a basic understanding of facility management.

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 will show competence against the Sport, Recreation and Fitness unit standards at NQF levels 1, 2 and 3 as well as communication and numeracy equivalent to NQF 3.

  • UNIT STANDARD ASSESSOR CRITERIA 
    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. Financial reports are completed against acceptable accounting norms and standards.
    2. Evidence of financial procedures and transactions is maintained, recorded and filed according to an acceptable system.
    3. Facility maintained, cleaned and simple repair jobs performed.
    4. Facility appropriately prepared for specific activity.
    5. Inventories of equipment are maintained.
    6. Equipment is maintained and in a good state of repair.
    7. Procurement procedures executed correctly and records filed.
    8. Prescribed list of tasks relating to facility management completed.
    9. Facility is marketed within the community.

    Demonstrated ability to learn from our actions and to ADAPT PERFORMANCE:
    10. Reflect on, measure and evaluate the event and performance in order to improve future practice and learning. 

    UNIT STANDARD NOTES 
    This unit standard has been replaced by unit standard 243295, which is "Administer sport or fitness facilities", Level 4, 8 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:

    1. Financial reports are completed against acceptable accounting norms and standards.
    2. Evidence of financial procedures and transactions is maintained, recorded and filed according to an acceptable system.

    Demonstrated ability to learn from our actions and to ADAPT PERFORMANCE:
    10. Reflect on, measure and evaluate the event and 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.

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.
