In all of the tables in this document, both the pre-2009 NQF Level and the NQF Level is shown. In the text (purpose statements, qualification rules, etc), any references to NQF Levels are to the pre-2009 levels unless specifically stated otherwise.  

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

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Learners credited with this unit standard are able to access different approaches to drawing.

This unit standard contributes to the competence of those who want to develop a career path in the Art, Craft and Design sector, and contributes to greater levels of production and quality in this industry.

Learners credited with this unit standard are capable of:
  • Developing observation using drawing.
  • Interpreting objects or ideas through drawing.
  • Adapting drawings of objects or ideas to inform the development of prototypes.

    If learners are competent in this drawing unit standard then the general creativity, designing of new products, production quality, and marketing of craft products will improve and increase. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is recommended that the learner has completed the NQF level 2 National Certificate in Craft Production or equivalent with competencies in accumulating ideas for the design process. 

    UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    Range statements are included in the unit standard where relevant.
