PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This unit standard will provide recognition for those who facilitate or intend to facilitate learning using a variety of given methodologies. Formal recognition will enhance their employability and also provide a means to identify competent learning facilitators.

People credited with this unit standard are able to:
  • Plan and prepare for facilitation;
  • Facilitate learning; and
  • Evaluate learning and facilitation. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    The credit calculation is based on the assumption that learners are already competent in the learning area in which they will provide training. 

    UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    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 specific outcomes should be performed in line with an established approach for facilitating learning using a variety of methodologies. At this level practitioners should be able to describe two alternative facilitation methodologies, to explain how their performance would differ when using the different methodologies, and to justify their choice of methodology.
    3. 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 
    Plan and prepare for facilitation. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 4 
    Learning material is prepared to suit the purpose of the facilitated activities and the agreed outcomes. 
    ASSESSMENT CRITERION RANGE 
    Learning material could include notes, diagrams, worksheets, audio and visual aids and models
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 5 
    Facilitation methods selected are appropriate to the learners and agreed learning outcomes. Descriptions are provided of a variety of facilitation methodologies in terms of their essential approach and purpose, and selected methodologies are justified in terms of applicability to the identified learning needs. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 6

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 8 
    Review criteria are established and documented in accordance with organisation policies and procedures. 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 2 
    Facilitate learning. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    Learning is facilitated in a coherent manner using appropriate methodologies in line with established principles associated with selected methodologies. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 2 
    The learning environment and facilitation approach promotes open interaction and ensures learners are aware of expected learning outcomes and are active participants in their own learning. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 3 
    The facilitation approach and use of facilitated activities enables learners to draw from and share their own experiences and work out and apply concepts for themselves. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 4 
    Facilitation contributes to the development of concepts through participation and provides opportunities to practise and consolidate learning. Facilitation promotes the achievement of agreed learning outcomes by individuals while maintaining an emphasis on the manner and quality of the learning experience. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 5 
    Groups are managed in line with facilitation principles and in a manner that maximises the strengths of group learning while recognising the needs and requirements of individual members. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 6 
    Questioning techniques are consistent with the facilitation approach, promote learner involvement and contribute towards the achievement of learning outcomes. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 7 
    Opportunities are created to monitor learner's progress in terms of the agreed outcomes, and where possible facilitate the gathering of evidence for assessment purposes. Where necessary, modifications are made to the facilitation approach to ensure the learners' needs are addressed. 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 3 
    Evaluate learning and facilitation. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    Learner and stakeholder feedback on facilitated learning is sought and critically analysed against review criteria.
