PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The practitioner who has achieved this unit standard will be aware of sector and workplace Skills Plans and will be able to facilitate skills and personal development across learner ships/learning programmes.

At this level of competence the practitioner will work with bodies of theory and will pay attention to learners' meta-cognitive issues.

In this way the practitioner will ensure that learners achieve nationally recognised qualifications and are able to assume increased independence and responsibility. It also ensures that employers achieve rising levels of productivity and competitiveness. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
Practitioners applying to enter a learning programme for this ETD standard -or applying to be assessed against this ETD standard -are assumed to have a qualification or equivalent competence in an occupation in which they will practice this ETD competence.

This standard describes the ETD competence which will be needed for them to facilitate learning through selecting and integrating a variety of methodologies in relation to their occupational competence. 

UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
The following statements provide a general guide to the scope and complexity of the competence expected of a practitioner:
1. Practitioners are required to demonstrate that they can perform the specific outcomes with understanding and reflexivity. However, at this level they will be creatively interpreting the "rules" or principles, which inform what they do.
2. The specific outcomes should be performed in line with an established methodology for facilitating learning through selecting and integrating methodologies. At this level the practitioner should be able to describe a spectrum of methodologies; to explain how their performance would differ if they used them and to justify their choice of methodology.
3. At this level, practitioners are expected to draw on and integrate insights and knowledge from 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 
Prepare the learners and learning environment. 

ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
 

ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
See Notes 
ASSESSMENT CRITERION NOTES 
The assessment of practitioners against this standard should meet the requirements of established assessment principles.

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 an appropriate combination of self-assessment and peer assessment; formative and summative assessment; portfolios and observations; etc.

The assessment should ensure that all the specific outcomes, critical cross-field outcomes, and essential embedded knowledge's are assessed.
1. The specific outcomes must be assessed through observation of performance. Supporting evidence should be used to prove competence of specific outcomes only when they are not clearly seen in the actual performance.
2. Essential embedded knowledge must be assessed in its own right, through oral and written evidence. It cannot be assessed only through seeing the knowledge being applied.
3. 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 also not be assessed as competent.
4. Evidence of the specified critical cross-field outcomes should be found both in performance and in the essential embedded knowledge.
5. Performance of the specific outcomes must actively affirm target groups of learners and not unfairly discriminate against any learners. Practitioners should also be able to justify their performance in terms of these values.
6. As occupation-directed ETD practice is intended to contribute to the goals outlined in the skills plans of the workplace, enterprise or sector, practitioners should explain how their performance does this. 

SPECIFIC OUTCOME 2 
Create communication and support strategies within groups. 
OUTCOME NOTES 
Create communication and support strategies within groups to encourage, e. g.,
  • dialogue;
  • lasting networks; and
  • integration of different viewpoints.
