PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The purpose of the learning is to attain the competencies required for effective and appropriate networking with youth development stakeholders, to ensure the quality of youth development.. In addition, reference sources and a network of expertise are developed. Application of the competence attained for credit against this unit standard improves the quality of youth development, interventions and processes.

The development of partnerships with stakeholders is a transferable competence, used not only in the field of youth development. Credited learners also improve their ability to learn as they are able to access the available partnership resources required for successful youth development work.

Credited learners are capable of:
  • Identifying and describing stakeholders that could contribute to the promotion of youth development within specific projects and contexts.
  • Negotiating with identified, selected stakeholders regarding their contribution towards achieving project goals.
  • Analysing stakeholders to define roles and responsibilities in terms of specific project plans.
  • Developing communication strategies regarding project needs, delivery and impact for specific contexts.
  • Selecting appropriate models of participation to determine effective partnership arrangements. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING

  • Communication and language at NQF Level 4.

    UNIT STANDARD NOTES 
    Notes to assessors

    Assessors should keep the following principles in mind when designing and conducting assessments against this unit standard:
  • Focus the assessment activities on gathering evidence in terms of the main outcome expressed in the title to ensure assessment is integrated rather than fragmented. Remember we want to declare the person competent in terms of the title. Where assessment at title level is unmanageable, focus assessment around each specific outcome, or groups of specific outcomes.
  • Make sure evidence is gathered across the entire range, wherever it applies. Assessment activities should be as close to the real performance as possible, and where simulations or role-plays are used, there should be supporting evidence to show the learner is able to perform in the real situation.
  • Do not focus the assessment activities on each assessment criterion. Rather make sure the assessment activities focus on outcomes and are sufficient to enable evidence to be gathered around all the assessment criteria.
  • The assessment criteria provide the specifications against which assessment judgements should be made. In most cases, knowledge can be inferred from the quality of the performances, but in other cases, knowledge and understanding will have to be tested through questioning techniques. Where this is required, there will be assessment criteria to specify the standard required.
  • The task of the assessor is to gather sufficient evidence, of the prescribed type and quality, as specified in this unit standard, that the learner can achieve the outcomes again and again and again. This means assessors will have to judge how many repeat performances are required before they believe the performance is reproducible.
  • All assessments should be conducted in line with the following well documented principles of assessment: appropriateness, fairness, manageability, integration into work or learning, validity, direct, authentic, sufficient, systematic, open and consistent.

    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.
